Somewhat Plain

Whee! These are the last pair of socks I needed to finish for holiday knitting. The original plan was to incorporate the leftovers from the other Italian series with this last colorway. That didn’t work out because I used up all of the yarn with the Broadripple and Yarrow socks. Nevertheless, these turned out [...]

Napoli

Here’s a pair of socks for November! They were started in October, but I kept getting distracted by other things.

I was a bit disappointed to find out that the rib pattern in this version is the same as the one used in the Yarrow version (see this post for my completed Yarrows) from [...]

Blue Yarrow

I’ve been feeling a bit scattered lately. Since finishing these socks, I haven’t cast on a new pair yet. Shocking! I need to remedy that soon.

You will notice the differently colored toes—that’s right, I ran out of yarn.

Venezia

Last chance to enter the “What’s in a color?” contest—the deadline is midnight tonight!

I started a new pair of socks a couple weeks ago. The colorway fits the current Project Spectrum theme, and these socks will be gifted later this year. After completing two pairs in a row for myself, it was time for [...]

Books and more

Here’s the picture of the completed Hippy Crunchy socks. I like how they look rather well. I decided to use only three pattern repeats, partly because of the time crunch. I needed to hurry up and finish them. I’m happy with the result, so I’m calling it a design decision, not cheating.

Madder Ribbed Socks

Back on Track!

I’m so happy! Finally, I frogged what I had knitted on these socks last Thursday.

At first, I frogged only halfway to see if they could be saved this way, but I still wasn’t happy, so RIP, everything went. I was in a positive mood, so I restarted immediately and have been working on them since.

Not Math Smart

Madder Ribbed Update: I’m experiencing that sneaking feeling that I will be frogging these. I’m keeping them in their travel bag for a couple more days until I take a good look and make my decision.

A few days ago I said I was going to take a break from socks… at the time I typed [...]

Orange and Yellow, some of the time

I wanted to post this yesterday, but couldn’t… my wireless connection with Comcast was acting up all weekend. I finally became fed up and watched some TV and knit some more on the Sixth Sense socks.

This ribbed pair is my take along project for mall walking (MOA). The weather is marvelous today and I think [...]
