Enjoy the day

So sad the passing of Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett. Does make you stop and think about your own life and ponder your own purpose. Life is short and hopefully we will all leave wonderful memories and good deeds for those we leave behind. Enjoy the day and savor the joys in your life.

Cable and Rib Sock

Using Knit Pick Essential Sock Yarn (soon to be called Stroll) knitted these socks. Pattern from Interweave knits. The yarn is very subtle in the color tones. They vary slightly and create a very hand made feel. Very soft as well and easy to knit with. Love this burgundy color. Click here to view my etsy shop!

Knitting Gives You Solace

So starting in on another pair of socks...cable rib, really nice with a cable running down the sides and ribs on the instep and leg. Burgundy color and should be really nice. I don't know why I am just knitting socks..I guess they are a short project and I get a great feeling after I have sold a pair, but more than that it is a way for me to be diligent in making socks and posting them. There is a quiet quality of knitting and a comfort level of finishing a project. Many years I use to have unfinished projects in my knitting projects but I have learned to finish the projects I start and that has made me alot more disciplined I think. I think also it takes my mind off those things you don't want to concern yourself about and clears you mind of mundane thoughts. Knitting can set your mind at ease and give you solace (at least for moment or two). I do love to knit!

Knit Pick Yarns

I finished the Go With The Flow socks! Knitted using Knit Picks Bare Superwash 75% Merino/25% Nylon blend yarn. Love the lacy pattern Interweave Knits Summer 2005. These are made for a Women's shoe size 7-8. They measure 9.25" flat, from heel to toe and will stretch to 10". The leg measures 9" from bottom of the heel to the top of the sock.
Machine Washable/tumble Dry Low. Great pattern...and really easy.
