Cross socks Pattern

Amazing how the pattern that I published for Ravelry has been requested and actually knitted by someone in Denmark! I am continually amazed how the wide web connects people and makes the world a very small place. It is really satisfying to see your pattern done by someone. Just amazing...

Basket Weave

I am at a point that I am feeling like I wish I had 4 hands to knit with. Two more pairs of socks were sold today and the basketweave went after I put them on sale to the same person who purchased my variegated yellow socks. He like them so much that he decided to buy two more pairs. Wonderful but that really makes my little shop look a little empty. I'll have to knit alot and fast! What fun.

Cable Rib Socks

This pair of socks were sold and what is interesting is that I think because the varied tones of the yarns made it less desirable. I had put these on sale just to move them. The yarn was from Yarn Treehouse, 100% wool and really very soft and warm. I love their yarns but because they are extra care I think that puts some buyers off on buying socks that are 100% wool versus yarns with nylon (superwash types). I have been into superwash yarns lately but may go back to 100% Wools again as I like knitting with them. (Even though they are extra care yarns).

Heart Clog socks

Absolutely wonderful...another order for the Heart Clog Socks makes my day! I really love these but think I will use different pattern on the sock. Maybe an all over pattern of hearts in relief. That would truly make it a heart sock! Probably a Valentines Day sock. I'll work on that!

AND THE YANKEES WIN!!!!!!! What can I say. It was a great win with Hideki hitting hot. 6 RBI's and named the MVP. So now I can just savor the win and have some sleep at night! Great going Yanks! See you all in the spring!

Last month was loaded up on custom orders for Clog Socks and just finished a custom order of these mitts only in black. Really think this is a great idea and hope that I can do more of these. So just knitting away as fast as I can. Still hoping to do a pair of Clog Socks with Yankee logo on heel! Hope they win the World Series tonight! These late games are tough on sleep! Go Yanks.
