September Sock

The Christmas socks have been fun to do. I'm almost finished with my second sock. I'm going to do the snowman eyes and buttons in duplicate stitch, since I was short on the black yarn. Yarn is all from my stash--main color is Knitpicks Stroll Sport in Hollyberry; the trees are also Stroll Sport. The other colors are fingering yarn held double. The snowmen also have a strand of angora knitted with the fingering, but it was a thin strand and didn't turn out as fuzzy as I had hoped. Fun pattern! Thanks, Tama!

Just Yer Basic Black Tabi Socks

I wear flipflops a lot, and I wanted a simple pair of black tabi socks, but I hate knitting with solid black yarn.

Solution: knit in just about any boring colourway, then overdye with Rit! I found an excellent buy on yarn...2 skeins on sale for just $5, a hard-to-beat and impossible-for-me-to-pass up deal.

Serenity Sock Yarn. Needles: 2.25mm

I love new socks, even simple basic black ones!

This shawl took most of the summer to knit, I finally got it blocked and given away! The pattern is Summer Rain by Renee Levington. I used Knit Picks Shadow in Red Hot.

August Winner

Sorry, I totally dropped the ball Barb!!  Sandy, you are our August winner!!  I was supposed to take care of this because the hurricane had Barb a little out of commission there for a couple of weeks.  Please forgive me...I actually have a pretty good excuse :o)  Got three more sock designs I am working on right now for the blog!!  I am so excited.  They are awesome, in my opinion lol.  Expecially the Halloween ones.  And a friend of mine asked me to create a design for her from a picture she found in a museum--having lots of fun with that also!

Anyway, Sandy, if you want to go to my store and select a prize then email that to me along with your address I'll get it out to you.

In the mean time, I hope you are enjoying the Christmas designs.
