For a while, I was working on my current SOS08 pair, Big Basin (from Six Sox Knitalong). This is the first time I’m using a wool-tencel blend and I just love it (Zen Yarn Garden Tencelicious)!
After finishing the gussets of these socks, I’ve put them on hold to knit the bunny pullover from Roo Designs. Mom bought the yarn and asked me to make one for her to take as a gift to an upcoming reunion. The Cashsoft yarn is so yummy to work with that I was happy to oblige! :)
Meanwhile, as mentioned in my last post, I had a sock yarn purchase token ready for my trip to Depth of Field. Surprise! I didn’t get any yarn, but I ended up getting New Pathways for Sock Knitters instead. Nevertheless, I was still able to use the token, as on Plurk, I wished for some sock yarn inspired by Randall’s Ghost (webcomic), mostly black with bits of white. KnittingDragon of Cables & Lace came to the rescue!
Exactly what I wanted, Thanks <a target=”_blank” title=Sweaters for Dragons blog (New Window)” href=”http://sweatersfordragons.com/”>KnittingDragon! I can’t wait to see what it looks like when knit up… :)
In other knitting news, Opal of The Akamai Knitter has opened an Etsy shop selling her handspun and handmade stitch markers. I couldn’t resist a set with a dragon charm (similar to this one), so cute!
