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!
