I am so excited to be going to Rhinebeck for the first time this October! There is a ravelry Rhinebeck swap going on that I thought I would post about here to help get the word out. Apologies for being away from the blog. I am moving in a matter of days and it has eaten my world.

Happy fibers until soon!

This swap is a Fall/October themed swap that requires NO postage! All of the participants will meet at Rhinebeck (in a location at the festival to be determined) on Saturday to exchange parcels and reveal themselves.

1) a fall themed project (small…1-2 skeins of yarn)

2)1 small, neato item you find at the festival

3) a fall themed treat! Can be a candy, drink, whatever reminds you of the fall!

and anything else you want to throw in!

Tidal Wave Socks August 7, 2007

Posted by lunarawe in fo, free knitting patterns, knitting, Knitting - FOs, knitting socks, Rockin' Sock Club 2007, socks.

Well at least now I can say I am not two yarn kits behind. Just barely. I have been such a scattered knitter these past months.

I decided to make Tidal Wave Socks from the April Rockin’ Sock Club 2007 kit. This is Socks that Rock Silkie in the Walking on the Wild Tide colorway. My apologies for a pic that does not really show the pattern all that well. I really loved how this pattern broke up the stripes and prevented pooling in these socks. Delightful! And the Silkie is so soft. I may make a scarf / shawl type thing with the other skein I have. This is definitely meant to be worn next to the skin!

These poor socks traveled through Cincinnati, Portland, Chicago, Orlando, and St. Louis. They’ve got mileage!
