Holy Cow! Where do the days go? They are flying by and I can't keep up. My last post was in May with news from September. How lame is that?
Lets have a quick roundup of news.
- I graduated with an AA, a huge accomplishment for me.
- Went back to school to earn a certification in Medical Billing and Coding. The big board exam is this Saturday. Hope I pass.
- Netflix and knitting have kept me sane!
Let's round up some projects, mostly old, mostly socks.Here we go...
Coralicious Socks, an easy, lacy pattern that's free on Ravelry, knit from a skein of my coveted Sundara Sock Cerulean Seas. These socks and the ones below were donated the a charity auction to raise money for school scholarships. I hope that they fetched a decent amount of money.
My first foray into socks using Zauberball Frische Fische. While watching the colors change was enjoyable, knitting with a single unplied yarn was not. My tension is tight and this yarn is not forgiving, not to mention splitty. Oh, the pattern is called Peacock, fitting, wah? Janel Laidman writes awesome sock patterns.
These were a quick knit. I love the colors and the fabric pictured with them is a vintage sari that I scored at the thrift for $4! The yarn was a gift, Gypsy Girl Creations and the colorway is called Floridian. The pattern, Dragonfly Socks, is free.
Knitting black fingering yarn can diminish your eyesight! Really. Black is so versatile and I would like more socks knit from black yarn, but my eyes...my eyes...
The pattern is free and called Clover. It's a great combination of cables and lace. Very classy. The yarn is JaWoll Solid Superwash. This is the yarn that comes with a spool of reinforcing thread for heels and toes. Too bad, I forgot to use it!
Pom Pom Peds are my current obsession. I could knit these day and night. Well, I do knit these in between projects. The yarn is something random out of the stash. It could be Lion Brand Magic Stripes, but who knows. The great thing about these socks is that you I use up all those remnants from larger sock projects. I wear mine to the gym and they are the socks that I get the most use out of. These are for my son, a Christmas gift. Since he never reads this blog, it's safe to say he will still be surprised.
I still have a plethora of projects and things to share. Stay tuned!
