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

Tea Dyed Ribbed Socks

I can foresee knitting several more pairs with this ribbed texture. RAVELRY NOTES: GIFT RECIPIENT: me PATTERN: K6xP2 SIZE: women's… Continue reading 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
