Well I am finally home after a month away. A whole month! Wonderful, loving, and a little bit insane. One joy lies in coming home to a pile of Socks That Rock from Blue Moon Fiber Arts. Delicious!

From left to right: Lunasea (in Silkie), Fire on the Mountain, Undertoe, and Walking on the Wild Tide (also Silkie, from the Sock Club).

Can you think of a more wonderful welcome home?

Two FOs! Call the press! 

What brings joy like a friend having a baby on the way? So many glorious and adorable things to knit. And fast! I fell in love with this pattern by Ann Norling for a Kid’s Fruit Cap. I went the eggplant route. Of course, the actual hat is eggplantier than this one, but the color did not come out clearly in the photo.

I am also pleased to report that the Inside Out socks were finished last week. One of these days I am going to have to ball the new sock yarn and start on my Grasshoppers. Hooray for the Rockin’ Sock Club! 

I’ve Been Bad May 4, 2007

Don’t ask me why, but I somehow managed to hit a blogging wall. I assume this happens to many bloggers… but I got to the point where I just didn’t feel like writing about knitting anymore. Or spinning for that matter. I love both, mind you… I have just been so tired. Too much work, too much travel, too much drama. You know how it is.

But I feel bad for my socks growing slower than slow… and figured I might as well post the pictures that I have been taking.

My Rockin’ Sock Club ‘Inside Out’ socks are just five rounds from completion. They will be finished on the plane back to Cincinnati this evening. Why? Because my latest sock club package is waiting for me at Eric’s house and I can’t be opening that shipment without finishing this one. Here was my first sock in all its glory:

And here is where the pair is at now:

So close! The cables are much cooler when actually stretched out on my hoofie woofies. Speaking of large feet… you will notice the legs of the socks are not terribly high… this is because I was conserving yarn due to the high number of stitches and the wideness of my feet. They are comfy though, so no complaints.

Then there were the socks that my housemate finally deigned to allow me to make for her. Here is her modelling the first bright monstrosity:

And the current state… not so terribly different than what you see above. These are next on the list. I need to rescue my needles to work on my Silkies!

I still seem to be fascinated by covering feet with yarn. Go figure.
