Why, Yes!
Here are two new pair! YAYYYY

Pink= Lorna's Laces in Flamingo stripes (oh, I adore this yarn! Definitely need more) ,little *gasp* toe up!!! anklets with a picot bind off
Brown/turquoise= madil eden print Bamboo yarn... ( I don't like it!!!Not so much the knitting with it, but the way the socks came out with a different pooling pattern, never mind what I tried!), also *gasp* toe up!!!
I know, I am a cuff down girl and always will be, but every so just has to give it a shot!

New September Socks!

After an excursion into thick fat shawl knitting I'm back to socks! Here are the ones I started last night. The yarn was dyed by me and I'm surprised by the effect as it is totally not what I was going for. The cable pattern is from Bäuerliches Stricken Book #2.

Here's a close-up of the cables, the colours are totally off though.

Back in the saddle again! Wooo!

I know you all probably think I forgot about this blog. Well, yeah I kinda did. I was looking around my blog to see what could be spruced up and saw this blog on my sidebar and said, "OOOPS!"
I'm sorry I haven't been contributing and from time to time I wonder if I should continue, what with my own blog and now, Ravelry.

But for those that don't read our blogs or just want the sockness, here's to you:

who doesn't heart smores?

DD picked the Knit picks Memories yarn in the Smores ( her favorite treat) color way and the lace heart sock pattern. I have to make them a bit bigger then the pattern calls for and I am using smaller size needles... ( size 1 to be exact.) Also instead of the picots she wanted a rolled edge on top.
So here is the first one of DD customized lace heart socks on the needles just a wee bit past the heel:What is everybody else knitting on?

Lace-Cuff Anklets

Pattern: Lace -Cuff Anklets from "Favorite Socks"

Yarn : Panda Cotton (55% Bamboo,24%Cotton,21%elastic nylon) from Crystal Palace Yarns in red cinnamon

Verdict : Loved the Yarn! very nice to knit with! I got the Yarn with the kit from the Sock of the Month Club I joined. I would not have chosen this color for myself, but ended up loving it and probably will buy more in this colorway! It ended up being really nice and "spice " colored! Goes to show.. be more experimental! Sometimes it pays off!
Pattern was ok..I changed the toe a bit, I decreased a bit more ( in the end every round) and then pulled the last 12 stitches together with the cut off end instead stopping sooner and kitchener the toe together... makes it a bit more round and lately I seem to like that better...

The socks are for my DD, she picked the pattern.

Look ! The new Sock Harvest is ready!
Cherries anyone?

I lost track of how many socks I made up to date... I gave a few away without documentation and just generally got tired of counting.
I guess I just don't give a s*ck..... ;)
