Weeee! I can post about my sample knit for Wool Girl now.
Here's a few shots I took before sending the sock to Jen.
I love how the sock turned out. My photo's do not do this sock justice. The yarn is by Madelinetosh, color Umoja. All proceeds are being donated to a great cause. You can read about it here. Go check out Jen's post to see more photos. I used the Cross-Stitch Block stitch pattern from More Sensational Knitted Socks using a 64 stitch cast on.
The colors are gorgeous and the money is going to a wonderful cause. Go buy yarn....enable, enable, enable! You all know how much I love being an enabler.
I finished my Marie Antoinette socks. Love em, love em, love em. Here's a close up of the sock.
Love the pattern, love the yarn, it's true love all around.
Pattern: Marie Antoinette socks by Knitspot
Yarn: Dream in Color Smoosy, Color: Ruby River
Needles: I used a combo of DPN's and a 32" circ, size US 1/2.5mm. I used the DPN's to knit most of the first sock. After becoming familiar with the pattern I knit the second sock magic loop.
Since I finished my Marie socks I needed another sock project on the needle.
Monday night I started the Cable Rib Socks from Favorite Socks. I have about 2.5 inches left before starting the toe decrease. This is turning out to be a quick knit. The yarn is Knit Picks Felici, color Arugala. This yarn is really soft so I'm curious to see how well it holds up.
We've been invaded by Girl Scout cookies. Kaity's pre-orders came in so we have been overrun by a couple hundred boxes of cookies. My craft room has been hijacked by the cookies.
