More WIP pictures!

I got my new camera! Yay! So here are nice pics of my WIP's.

First, a completed coaster. It's a modified heart dishcloth design. I finished it rather quickly one night. It's made with peaches and cream kitchen cotton. I still have to weave in the ends and wash it in hot water to shrink it a little bit.
Next, two coasters in progress. The one on the left is made with Patons classic wool, the one on the right is made with the same cotton as the first. I figure I should be able to knit 3 at a time on these needles. That will get it moving! These are the coasters I'm sending out with Thank You packages later this month. So I'm making a bunch of them, the more I can do at a time, the better.
Now, on to my sock! This is being made with Lion Magic Stripes in Bright Spring. Right now, it fits my big toe. I'm considering ripping it out and starting with more stitches cast on due to my very wide feet. We'll see how it works out. If it doesn't fit me, I could always give the socks to someone else. The pattern is Knitty's "Universal Toe Up Sock" and I used the "Magic cast-on" also on Knitty's site. I'm too lazy to pull the links. I may edit this to add them later.
And finally, the sock I'm working on in Knit Picks Palette in the Pool color. It will someday be a toddler or baby sock. We'll see what it decides to do with itself as I knit it.
And coming up next... a picture of me! Taken today by my 8yo son. But you'll have to wait until tomorrow. Hehe.
