I have gotten into sock knitting. I really enjoy it.
I made a pair of Baudelaire socks designed by Cookie A. out of some tofutsie yarn I bought on my birthday.
Then I got the Sock Innovations book by cookie A.
and then I made some Kai-mei socks from that book for a green Knit A Long, using some grasshopper colorway in Knit picks essential kettle dyed.
Then Madeline thought it was high time I knit her some socks, with pockets in them! She earned some cherry tree hill supersock solid in turquoise to match some DC shoes I got her for school next year.
In the midst of all this I was involved in a sock showdown for one of my groups on Ravelry. These are the socks I knit for DJDuckee
I was almost the first to "assassinate" my target, but her mailman was lazy! stupid mailman!
I also received two pair of socks
I got this pair from SusanB-Knits in exchange for making her a crochet hook roll.
I am modeling them with my new pair of converse that I got to wear at the family reunion next week.
I also met my demise in the sock showdown with this beautiful pair of socks.
Well that seems to be all socks, where is the other stuff, you ask? I have to say that's a good question. I did start another clapotis made with wollmeise yarn that belongs to Smurfie, for smurfie. I am about half way though it now. woohoo! I also started another pair of socks and a february lady sweater to work on while at the family reunion.
