Are you sick of socks yet?

No?  Good.   That’s Nicks handsome feet in handsome hand knit socks from Grandma.  She’s celebrating Socktoberfest too.  Nick gets to wear them because, after all, he is the oldest.  Those six minutes gotta count for something.  Grandma is knitting away on another pair as I type, though, so Alex won’t have to wait too [...]

I completed my first pair of Socktoberfest socks!  Nevermind that they are both very teeny weeny socks. I do have a couple of regular sized socks on the needles, both about a quarter of the way done. In baby news, I think the Terrible Two’s have struck early here.  And it’s just going to get worse.  [...]

I will start Jaywalker number two this week.  First I really have to buckle down and finish the scarf I’m knitting for my ISE pal.  I only have about another foot which I should be able to complete at work tonight.  Hopefully tomorrow it won’t be raining and I can take a trip to a [...]

A Hard Day’s Knit

I had another productive night at work.  I finished my first fetching and started the second on.  I would have continued on with the second but I left my cable needle home on my desk.  Can’t cable without it so I switched to my sock and knitted away at that. Yarn porn! Here’s the finished [...]

Socktoberfest and Rainbows

4th October 2006 | Closed

Post Part A: Socktoberfest I finally received my sock yarn to start socking! Yah!  I ordered some Koigu KPPPM in Colorway 534, it’s mostly pastel shades of all colors, greens, purples, blues, pinks and yellows.  It seems to have a lot of pink it in but it’s not overpowering.  I have cast on and done [...]
