Finished Friday

I've fallen way behind on showing the socks that I've knit - but I have met the goal of knitting 12 pairs of socks this year from stashed or gifted yarn. In other words - yarn that I personally have not spent money purchasing during 2009. Once I reached that goal, I decided to see if I could knit 36 pairs during 2009 all using stashed or gifted yarn, with three sets of 12 - 12 pair for me; 12 pair for JB; and 12 pair that are gifted. 18::12 Taylored Test Knit socks. This is a pair of socks that I volunteered to test knit the pattern for a Ravelry Designer. I don't remember if the pattern is free or not, but the details are over at Rav. Yarn is Pink Baby Ull that I've had in the stash for awhile. Needles were US0s, both at the same time, toe up. 19::12 Y's Ty-Dyed Summer. This yarn is so soft and just lovely to knit with. Everyone who saw them thought the yarn was a bit bright - but I'm telling you - you smile when you see them. Pattern: Dash Needles: 2.25mm, magic looping Toe up, gusset heel, traditional heel flap. 20::12
Pattern: Twisted Tendrils
Yarn: Dream in Color Smooshy, Good Luck Jade
Needles: 2.00 mm double points, worked one at a time, top down. This pattern was fun and challenging, but easy to keep track of. The yarn was fabulous. I will say this was another test knit and I followed the pattern exactly. I was devastated when I realized these socks wouldn't fit me, so they were gifted to Miss L.
Size 7 feet and legs provided by Miss L.
In case you're wondering - to date I have knit 5 pairs for me; 4 pairs for JB; and 11 pairs have been (or will be) gifted. I have 2 pairs on needles - one for me and one for JB.


  1. They're all beautiful, but can you bottle up some of your sock mojo and send it to me?

  2. Do you knit in your sleep?

  3. Can I get in line behind Channon for some of that mojo. Love them all!

  4. Love all the socks! Man, I need more knitting time! I'm so jealous of everyone's FO's. LOL

  5. I stand in awe of your sock making capabilities. OK, right now I sit in awe, but you get the picture, right? Hope you have a great weekend in store. This week has been a rat race around here. I wish it was because business had picked up, but it's because of college kids and their needs. Well, at least they still need me.

  6. I'm starting to wonder if you've finally mastered the art of getting 28 hours in each day. lol

  7. Love them:).
    Okay, I figured out the reason you get so much's the time change....yep, yep, yep......the time change. LOL


I appreciate you coming to see me. It may take me a bit to publish your comment - but I will get to them by the end of every day. If you leave a way for me to get back to you, I will. Thanks for taking the time to comment and share your opinions. g
