Three Pairs of Vanilla Socks

The night before Felix was born, I cast on two pairs of socks, just to have some simple knitting lying around my favorite haunts in the house: one on my nightstand and one in my knitting basket by the sofa. This is the start of […]

Sock Day Saturday

My job completely wore me out each day this week. When I get home from work is usually when I do the creative stuff whether for pleasure or profit. This week, Monday through Thursday I did absolutely nothing but eat dinner and stare at my […]

SOCKS!

I did it. I couldn’t deny it any longer. I was so close to them, I just had to cast on for the Thigh High Stripes. These socks are so delicious, I can’t wait to have them finished and on me. It’s so much wool, […]

A Tuesday Jumble

Life has been a jumble lately. Yesterday I came out to my car after work (late, of course) to find that my right front tire was flat. This didn’t really surprise me because I haven’t been able to keep air in the thing to save […]

Pineapple Socks aka Assymetical Cables

The first pair of socks from the Sock Knitting Master Class is finished! The yarn in Tiny Dino Studios Protoceratops (100% Merino, 3-ply) in Pineapple. Out of a 100g skein (490 yards) I used 75g (approximately 370 yards) to knit the largest size sock in […]

Sock Inspiration

One of my favorite things to knit in summer is socks. Top-down vanilla socks are easy for me now, because I can carry the pattern around in my head and I don’t have a large wool something on my lap when it’s 115 degrees outside. […]

In the Works Wed–Wait! What?

This is what happens when I try to do a regular, weekly segment here on the blog. I plan and plan (in my head where all the most reliable planning is done dontcha know) about what I want to include in the “In the Works […]

Striped Pajamas

A few weeks ago, I was talking to my son in the car on the way home from school, and I don’t remember how it came up, but he told me he had never seen Lady and the Tramp. I had let my son grow […]

FO: Fuchsia Socks

Two finished projects in two days, I am blazing! (Which isn’t entirely true, I finished the sweater a week ago and didn’t knit very much as I prepared for the Winter Woolfest. Unfortunate I know.) Last night I finished a pair of socks I started […]
