Another month has swiftly pass and I've got pictures to show...

I've knit (Tuscany - ravelry link) ...

travelled (all over including Crater Lake)...


(no pictures 'cause they're all in our tummies)

surfed.... (why doesn't merino/linen sound so intriguing?)

continued to knit...

Magic Carpet


There are still some days left before the kids start we're off to swim, eat, and just enjoy these fleeting days together.

I'm a joiner...Loopy Groupies Red KAL

I tried to get a good picture of my Red Socks for the Red KAL and the Summer of Socks while we were in Seattle, but it was raining! Yarn is Sailor's Delight from Hazelknits. Pattern is Firestarter. Sorry for the poor picture.

One row scarf pictures at last!

Yes, I'm still here...

I did not make any more Sockmadness2 socks. The timing wasn't right and my desire lessened considerably.

I'm trying to decide on what sock pattern to use next for a Red KAL. Maybe Yarnissima's Firestarters or Wendy's Garden Path or Nanner socks or Cat Bordhi's Bartholomew's Tantalizing Socks. Oh, the choices! The yarn will be Hazelknit's Sailor's Delight. Yum!

I just finished a scarf - Yarn Harlot's one row scarf using a super soft cashmere/silk yarn from Skein Queen. Pictures to come.

Sockmadness2 - Round 4

I cannot believe I finished these socks! They were a real BEAR to knit! I kept telling myself to keep going and I was able to finish in time to stay in for the next round.
Something Shady Socks
Main color : purple, Cherry Tree Hill Supersock
Heel color: Apple Laine (autumn colorway I think)
Needles: size 1 (2.25mm) DPN (started with 2 circulars but they were too long and everything was tangled)
Time start to finish: 34 hours
The next round begins Sunday morning. Bad timing for me. Sigh.
