Fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, finished objects! (with apologies to my beloved Talking Heads)
Two more down for SOS ’07 and my first sock for the Sockamania knitalong (love this one). The green is my first sock from the Favourite Socks book – Anniversry Sock – and it was knit in this month’s Pick Up Sticks sock club yarn. The blue is “Spiralling Socks”, the spirals mirror each other on the left and right sock. This was done in J. Knits yarn from the Loopy Ewe. Love this yarn – it’s very fine and soft and the varigations are perfect (I’m not a fan of “pooley” and “stripey”, unless I buy a self-striping).
The second installment of Socktopia’s Mystery Sock came out yesterday, I’d just cast on the 2nd cuff – didn’t want to stop knitting with the yarn – so I’m anxious to get started on Part two today. And I finally have my Six Sox “I Love Gansey” started – this is coming out better than I expected, the yarn is NOT fighting with the design and that makes me happy :). I’ll cast on my “Shooting Stockings” for my commuter sock – nothing else is portable – what with charts and working from two ends of a yarn cake!
Oh! And this is totally cool….
I was nominated by SMariek, who has some of the best (free) hat / scarf and “warshrag” patterns that I’ve knit – drop by for a visit :)!
