Some socks

Yeah, I know I said I wasn't going to post a bunch of "Looky What I Mades," but I also said I was going to post every day. unfortunately, although I knit or do something else fiber-related almost every single day, that doesn't mean everything is post-worthy. In fact, most of it isn't.

Anyway, here is a pair of socks. Don't worry - I have another pair just like this one. Okay, that was corny.

The one on the left is made with Paton's Stretch Socks (41% cotton, 39% wool, 13% nylon, and 7% elastic). The one on the right is made with Trekking XXL (75% Superwash wool, 25% nylon). Both were done on size 3 dpns.

Although both are rated as lightweight sock yarn, the finished Paton's sock has a lighter feel - a nice 3-season sock, while the Trekking makes a nice, fuzzy, warm sock that will be best for cold winter days.

Flat Feet Socks

Thanks to my pal Dana for gifting me some Flat Feet. These socks are the result. This yarn was so much fun to work with, and I had no idea how the colors were going to turn out. The end product is nothing like the beginning. Should have taken some pics of the original yarn. I want to score some blanks from Knit Pics and play around with dying my own.

I Know! I Know!!

A whole month has gone by since I started cleaning this place up. I need to make it a habit like it was before. It takes two weeks of doing something (or not doing something) every day to make (or break) a habit. I'm going to attempt at least one post a day.

If it makes you (or me) feel any better, I have been crafting and planning over the last month. Made a couple of pairs of socks and a scarf for my dear friend Sarah.

The Yarn Yarn Sisterhood has been meeting regularly, and growing mad skills.

Back to the one post a day -- I watched Julie & Julia this morning, and thought about how great it would be to blog for a living. Like that will happen! Dare to dream! I don't plan to knit my way through EZ's Knitter's Almanac, I do intend to blog more about my adventures in fiber.
