WIP socks and a sweater

This is just a quick post to show some WIP photos, and to test posting photos with the new online photo site I'm using now. I decided to use Flickr, and I need to test how the posting of photos here will work. From what I can tell in my blogger preview, it's working as expected. I'm just not really sure how it's going to behave. So if anyone has any troubles, please let me know! :)

So on to the knitting. Here are my Embossed Leaves socks from Interweave's Favorite Socks book. So far I am loving the pattern, and the yarn. As I mentioned before, the yarn is Knit Picks' Essential. As you can see I did the cuff in the Burgundy color, and am on the leg in Pumpkin. I'll do the heel in Cocoa (brown) when I get there.

I've done one repeat plus a little, and you can see the leaves emerging:

Fun pattern!

I had to set that sock aside though to work on this, my deadline knitting. I am making a baby cardigan (Devan, from Knitty) for my nephew-to-be for my sister-in-law's shower in a few weeks. So far I've done the back, and have a couple of inches of the left front so far. It's pretty quick knitting. I've decided to let the striping do what it wants, and not worry about it not being perfect. I think it's coming out rather cute, even with the somewhat randomness of the striping.

So far so good! That's it from here for now.
