2 Pair for a New Year

Happy New Year… I finished two pair of socks recently.  Both of these are made out of Sophie’s Toes yarn. I also got a nice surprise on the last day of the year.  I got a fat quarter bundle of reproduction fabrics – Jefferson County by Jeanne Horton.  This bundle is gorgeous.  I can’t wait [&hellip…

2 Pair and Replacements

I do still knit and here’s some proof. 2 lovely pairs of socks.  One with that new tomato heel.  The jury is still out on if I really like it or not, but it was fun for this pair. The purple pair is my friend Julie’s pattern Monet’s Twist with a few variations.  I’ve basically [&hellip…

Two Pair

Yesterday I started the day off with a bang by finishing two pairs of socks. A lovely simple car sock (my favorite pattern is Classic Socks for the Family, but there seems to be a lot of free ones on Rav that have a similar recipe) – that just needed kitchnering and the second just [&hellip…

Spin and Knit

For some reason I got a crazy idea and joined the Ravelympics.  I’m in the Fleece to FO Track.  I’d been wanting to spin for another pair of socks and (a) it was a good time to motivate me to do this and (b) I thought this would be fun for my Silly Sock Swap.  [&hellip…

First FO of 2010

So here we go… I finished up a pair of basic socks with some yarn I dyed a while ago. These have been hanging on for ages and ages, since I just worked on them a minute here and there.  The eternal car sock project. Well… that feels good. Also I’ve completed a few dishcloths.  [&hellip…
