January 2019

Hey all! it has been one busy month. I rung in the new year with a sinus and respiratory infection that hung on for a while. I managed to keep a slow and steady pace while working on my goal list for the month. I knit 8 dishcloths, 3 hats, 2 Christmas ornaments, 1 shawl,… Continue reading January 2019

Xmas in July Socks

So, I started knitting this pair of socks back in July. I knit the first sock and casted on for the second sock before loosing interest and starting something new. I picked them up and finished this week. I knit them with yarn that I dyed with cactus blossoms last summer. I was really surprised… Continue reading Xmas in July Socks

July Socks

I can't say that I am happy with the way this pair of socks turned out! The yarn from the sock on the right had a huge knot in it and the yarn switched directions mid skein. The result was a weird stripe in the middle and me almost running out of yarn. I decided… Continue reading July Socks

Slipper Socks

I finally got around to finishing a pair of slipper socks that I started for my daughter in April. We dyed the yarn together on a snow day! She wanted the yarn to look like a gingerbread house. The brown colors are for the gingerbread, the light pink and white are for the icing, and… Continue reading Slipper Socks

Tea Dyed Ribbed Socks

March Socks

I love how my March Socks turned out! The gray yarn is some that I dyed for a sweater and the lime green is leftover from a blanket. I knit the heels in garter stitch! I'm curious how well they will hold up! I'm willing to do about anything to avoid purl stitches! RAVELRY NOTES:… Continue reading March Socks
