I know I am behind on my days but what the heck!
I started some new toe up socks with this yarn. Claudia's HandPainted Yarn in Purple Earth. These are my Sea Socks. The yarn was a present from Kathy, who went off sailing and left me high and dry here in the mile high. Even so, my friends are the best. I love this yarn. The colors are fabulous. The stitch pattern is still undetermined since I am on my fourth try at swatching for the right pattern. So far a pattern has not hit me, but when it does it will be a real knock down. (and you thought I meant knock out didn't ya, but you know its the whole pattern hitting, knock down, yes I know very silly)
I was glad my friend Kathy joined us for a bit at Knit Knack on Saturda. She is working on the most beautiful deep purple shawl with beads on the ends (I love it, of course) and a beaded sock, again beautiful. Terri is working on her caplet. She is doing great and we should be able to see a finished product very soon.
Mary Kay is modeling my Lucy Neatby Celestrial Merino that Kathy gave me for my birthday. I think she like the colors. I know I do!
Isn't this the cutest little sock sack? Nichole bought one for everyone last Tuesday at Lollicup. How nice is that. I love all of my knitting friends. Thank you Nichole.
HAPPY KNITTING THOUGHTS TO ALL.
