Oh Yeah, Socks

There's always something going on around here.  If I'm not house cleaning, then I'm knitting socks.  And if I'm not knitting socks, then I'm out with the family - or out with the girls.  Time flies and before you know it, your computer is broken and you've forgotten what you did and when.  It's all a blur.  It's a good thing I remember (sometimes) to bring my camera with me.

Here's a pair of socks I made from Cookie A's book, Sock Innovation:

Lovely socks and a lovely pattern made with Blue Moon's Socks that Rock in Korrpi.  Looks like eggplant to me.   My socks are fraternal twins because I stupidly moved my stitch marker, but what the hay.  They fit, I love them and I'm convinced that Cookie A doesn't hate me.  LOL

These are BlackRose socks from KnittySpin.   Love them!  Love the yarn I used too, Madelinetosh with cashmere.  Woo hoo!  I love cashmere.  Winter socks for sure, but lovely all the same.

Little Acorn socks with a cute little mock cable down the side.  Made with Cascade Heritage in green - although they don't look green on my screen.   Lovely summer weight yarn and how cute is that folded cuff?  I made these socks while I was half asleep, that's how easy they were to make.

Did I mention that I had a night out with the girls (and guys)?  I've been at my job for 24 years (25 in November!) and a bunch of folks who used to work at the job and folks that work there now decided to have a little gathering so we could walk down memory lane.  What a blast!   This was the first ever reunion, and I hope there will be many more.

The Tour de Fleece is coming up - in less than a month - and this blog will (I hope) be full of newly spun skeins.  I'll be spinning with my new Trindle (if I can find it - oy!), a drop spindle and a Lendrum.  Wish me luck - maybe this year I'll win something.  Woo hoo!  I'll be watching the Tour de France race too, just so I can cheer Andy Schleck on.  Go Andy!
