In Which There is Knitting

Well, I clearly had lots to say about reading, so I'm just posting a quick up-to-date on what I've been knitting which in a word would be.... socks.

My present stages of sock knitting...

Planning stage... Meida's Socks with Dream in Color Smooshy Sock "Petal Flowers"

Partial Undulating Rib in Panda Cotton (which I love... more later)


Lonely Only Yarn Pirate awaiting a match


To the toes on my Lorna's Laces Somerset shorties (at which point I had to stop reading to start decreasing and was then sidetracked by blogging). Upon completion, these size 1 circs will be put into play on the above mentioned Meida's... hopefully by days end (pending all other distractions).


Then the grand finale... the drawer where all my pretties await a day cool enough to actually be worn in our So Cal summer.


From drawer to drawer, yarn to sock, it's an exciting life for sure.

Those are gorgeous socks. I definately want to hear more about the panda cotton. I can't bring myself to knit wool socks just yet, when at least 200 days out of the year I wear no socks at all.

I happened upon your site and was amazed by all the wonderful socks...I aspire to be a sock knitter one day...I grew up in So California but now live in Alaska where I'm sure I could wear handknit socks almost everyday!!! Thanks for the inspiration!
