Merry Christmas!!

Merry Christmas, everyone!!

I hope everyone is having an excellent Christmas! I've been busy knitting, but for the first time in a long time the only things I had to knit on Christmas Eve was stuff that I wanted to knit, not stuff that I had to knit for Christmas, lol.

I made another pair of Thujas with Patons Kroy in eclipse and coal for the heels and toes, Ravelry details here.

More Kroy socks, plain old vanilla in copper colors, details here.

I used up some leftover Briggs & Little Tuffy to make some ladies ankle socks, details here.

The oldest kid had big, wide feet.  Size 14 EEEE, to be exact.  He complains non-stop about is socks, and it's really hard to get him anything that actually fits him that he likes.  He only likes ankle socks, so I made him a pair out of my leftover Serenity Sock Yarn in aquamarine, details here.

Don't eat too much turkey or ham!!  Soon off to MIL's for Christmas dinner, first time in many years that I haven't had to do it!!

Happy knitting!!

PS  (I got lots of Tuffy for Christmas to make work socks!)

My Monday night knitting group meets at the local museum.  They decorate big time for Christmas and put up many trees.  They had a little tree they asked everyone to make decorations for, so I made some mini socks, of course, lol.  Leftover socks yarns, the pattern is Mini Socks, details here.

Happy knitting!

A bit of a repetitive post, it's mostly socks with repeat colors.  Got a really good deal on sock yarn, and there's a new store in town that sells all hand made stuff, and she is carrying my socks.  Sold a couple of pairs, but I only had five pairs to start with and just dropped off more today.  Got to build up the variety, lol, and I will also be taking in some of the heavy wool work socks and some felted slippers. 

All vanilla socks to start, Deborah Norville Serenity Sock Yarn, links to Ravelry details on the color name, pink sugar...

...teal tease...


Then I had a request from someone who had gotten felted slippers from me years ago to make three more ladies size large pairs.  Made with Patons Classic Wool in mainly black, yellow, navy, and chestnut brown, with odds and ends of other colors used as well (they cut back on yardage years ago, sob's).  I used to be able to knit a pair of mediums with two skeins, but now you need a contrast color or extra ball to make the cuff or you run out.  The pattern is the old faithful, Felted Clogs, details here.

Back to vanilla socks the same as those above, two more pairs of each color, spring fling...

 ...teal tease...

Something a bit different, Thujas made out of Ice Yarns Super Socks, details here.

Same yarn, but Vanilla Latte pattern, details here.

And lastly a new color for me, Patons Kroy in sunburst stripes, plain vanilla socks once again, details here.

Happy knitting!

Catch Up

 I finally got around to washing and blocking the Waverly Weekend Cowl I complete some time ago.  The yarn is Takhi Yarns Chelsea Silk, (not a fan, the yarn was given to me) Ravelry details here.

Vanilla socks made with Premier Yarns Wool Free Sock Stripes in Rainforest, details here.

 And luckily at this point in time I'm out of Caron Cakes, as these suckers are addictive.  It's the Boom! pattern with added eyelets in between the color changes.  My mods: 

Row 1: K1, kfb, k to last 2 sts, k2tog tbl 
Row 2: slip 1, knit to last 2sts, kfb, k1
K1 (yo, k2tog) for eyelet rows between color changes
The first one is Rainbow Sprinkles, details here.

Bumbleberry, details here.

Pistachio, details here.

Faerie Cake, details here.

Lastly a Pine Forest Baby Blanket, the yarn is Lion Brand Pound of Love.  I did a seed stitch border instead of a garter stitch border.  I did 8 rows at the beginning and end and 8sts on either side.  If I did it again I'd do probably 12 rows beginning and end, it's not quite wide enough, but I wasn't going to rip it back once I was about 6" into it to change it.  Details here.

Happy knitting!
