Socks Socks and More Socks

I definitely have the sock knitting mojo going on.  Here is the latest finished pair.

Pattern -  Hedera (Knitty)
Yarn - Kitchen Sink Dyeworks
Colorway  -  Hopeless Romantic
Needles  -  2.5 mm DPNs

I had a hard time finding a pattern for the next pair of socks.  The yarn is so colorful that several patterns that I started just didn't work out.  After searching for a while I decided to try Sunrise Socks from Wendy Knits.   I think I found a perfect match!  The yarn is Yarn Pirate in the Sweet Pea colorway

DH and I enjoyed a relaxing long Memorial Day weekend but I am so glad that it is Friday.  Other than taking Cisco(for his weekly fluids) to Dr. Jimmy tomorrow I plan on maybe picking up an unfinished sweater (CeCe) from last year.  I am not making any promises though.

My WIP Hedra socks are being knit from Kitchen Sink Dyeworks in the Hopeless Romantic colorway.

After seeing Elizabeth's Ariosa Wrap cardigan I have been on a quest to find yarn.  

I am off to work and at least the temperature is cool this morning!

Whiskers On Wednesday

As you can see the pile-o-kitties see to be very comfortable.

Hershey is still not accepted by Beamer but at least we can keep the doors open even though we do hear occasional hissing.

In the  Wool Girl's last sock club shipment (which was wonderful by the way)  I was a prize winner.  My prize package arrived and here are goodies by Cranberry Sweets and a skein of Curious Creek Fibers sock yarn.

I also received the first installment of the Yarntini Sock club.  I love the deep blue colors in the yarn .  She also included a recipe for Cabana Boy Martini.  Yum!

Lots of tornado and severe thunderstorm warnings today.  Can't wait.  Have a great day.

Wee Tiny Sock

My Wee Tiny Sock arrived this weekend and just look how cute !  My Pal was Jan from Minnesota.  She used Noro Silk Garden and even made a cuff.

Thanks to Emily and Jan for such a fun swap.


I have had a lot going on lately but I plan on keeping up with blogging .  My SIL and I went to Stitches South in Atlanta a couple of weekends ago and had such a fun time.  We found so many fun projects to keep us busy for a while.  We had to shop at Miss Babs where several skeins of yarn fell into the bag and also some roving that had to come home with me.  Brooks Farms was also a must have and I have already finished a scarf from the yarn.

Brooks Farm Yarn

Solo  100% fine wool

Journey Scarf (pattern free with purchase)


We were also treated to a delicious dinner at Bones by my friends Elizabeth and John from Asheville who also had come down for Stitches.  I have known Elizabeth from the blogging world and she is famous for the Knit Bloggers cookbook which she published.


DH with the help of our BIL  just finished cutting up a huge branch that fell across the driveway during a brief storm last night.  We had to have it moved just so we could get out this morning.


Have a great day!
