View At Your Own Risk – SOS#3 – fugly sock AKA “Fawkes” sock by Momma Monkey at Socktopia and SOS#4 a KB Design in Zen String sock club colour “Lily”. (This is also my August sock for SAM4). Number 5 is on the needles, “Party Socks” from Favourite Socks in the July Pick Up Sticks club colour “Green Apple” Shelridge Farm yarn. I joined the Sockamania club and have cast on the August pattern “Spiralling Socks” in yarn from The Loopy Ewe (JKnits “Miami”) and am really enjoying this knit – after the fuglies, my eyes need a break!
I have also joined the Chevron Scarf KAL, and have two versions going. One is in Zen String Harmony, the “Chocolate Cherise” and a limited edition pink colourways, the second version is Scout’s Swag “Orchids” and Fleece Artist “Moss” – quite possibly my favourite green.
I am trying to break out of this sock-addiction, well, um-m-m… after I wrap up the eleventy-hundred sock KAL’s that I’m in. For inspiration though… I bought another kit from One Planet Yarn & Fibre. I am already a fan of Melissa‘s patterns and this one was too cute to resist, the “Sunshine Tank”. I’ve already downloaded the pattern – just waiting on the yarn – I’m going with the exact yarn specified, right down to the colour. Most of the KAL’s I belong to have voted on the August, August / September designs and I went stash diving to find some nice combinations. Here’s some of what I came up with:
I did a mini update of my Pre-Blog knits (hard to find & scan all those “old” pictures)! You can see them here if you’d like.
And… I’m spent!! Hasta Tarde
