New Projects with Old Yarn

The Ravelympics have come and gone, and while I must say I was glad I participated, I didn't get as much done as I thought I would. Right now I am knitting more than I did during the Ravelympics. Below are a few of my latest projects. They were all knit with yarn from my stash (my husband is so proud!). I've linked the pattern where I can:

Cuff Bootees by Debbie Bliss, from the book Simply Baby. I was able to shape these nicely for the photograph, but these have to be one of the strangest looking booties I've ever seen. One of the ladies on Ravelry described these as a bootee for Frankenstein's child, and I have to agree!

Waffle Knit Dishcloth by Deb (Homespun Living Blog). This is a quick and easy pattern but with nice texture to it. I've used this dishcloth and love it.

Spiral Eyelet Socks by Sandi Rosner. I just finished these socks this afternoon, and love, love, love this pattern. The yarn was some given to me by my cousin, so I'm not exactly sure of the kind it is, but I think it is a bamboo blend. It seems a little stretchy, so even for my thick feet and ankles the socks are a little loose.

Easy Knitted Booties by Bundles of Love. If you're looking for a quick project to knit for a baby shower or new baby gift, this is it! I used the knit 2, purl 2 ribbing; next time I'll opt for the knit 1, purl 1 ribbing.
