Clog Heart Socks

So tinkering with another pair of socks thought socks made to be worn with know the open backs! Keeping those feet warm in the early spring or late fall when the air is cool. Actually fun to do pattern on heel and think I'll try another with a different pattern. Used Knit Picks Bare Essentials, Merino and Nylon blend. Great to knit with and very soft to the touch.

Visit from Leslie and the Boys

A very nice visit from my daughter Leslie and her boys, Luke and Ethan. We went to see the Essex Steam Train and visited the Bronx Zoo which was a real treat and hit with the boys.
Always sorry to see the visit end but always great to see Luke and Ethan and of course Leslie! Can't wait for the next time we get together!

Yoga Socks

Well, I knitted the yoga socks using Knit Picks Merino/Nylon blend. Really fun to do and lacy pattern makes them look even more unique. Might do some more and try to sell them.

Cable Socks with Accents

Just sold this pair of socks to a woman in England. She said they matched the color of her husband's rugby team! Absolutely happy to sell these. They were knitted with Knit Pick Gloss (Merino and Silk). The only thing with this yarn is the extra care needed. I think that people are just to rushed to take the time to care for products. It's more that people need convenience of not spending too much time in mundane chores like washing socks! But, I do love the feel and look of this yarn and I think it is worth the extra effort.

Diamond Pattern Socks

So I finished the socks and was really surprised how fast they were to knit. Really love the final results and have to say I love this yarn. Merino and nylon blend superwash by Knit Pics. Got to get some more only in colors.

Diamond Pattern Socks

Working on a new pair of socks with diamond pattern...basically using only purl and knit. Actually looking pretty nice and should be done in a couple of days. Thinking of doing a pair of toe less socks (pedicure socks). Might be fun and interesting to use all my stash yarns.
