Dog Days of Summer

Today I sent a pair of Scrunch Socks for a woman in Germany. She has purchased a pair before and this is her second pair. I hesitate to post the Scrunch Socks in Etsy as a custom sock for as soon as I post it, it is sold. Not that that isn't nice but I have been working on a pair of socks that I have yet to finish because of custom orders that have to be done. This one that I  am working on is the Criss Cross in Yellow and Black. Really a great looking sock and hope that I will be able to finish them.

It have been hazy, hot and humid here in Westport, CT. Not exactly the type of weather that you love to knit in but I do have AC and only wish I could retire to knitting around the clock. Maybe someday but for now it has been a great summer of knitting.

Double Cross side Cable socks

Double Cross Side Cable Socks
Well finally finished the final sock for the Double Cross Side Cable Socks! Have published in Ravelry and also Etsy. Really was a test for me as I had to knit 4 pairs of these to get the pattern right and along the way designed the heel and toe to compliment each other. I love the results and these gray socks were immediately sold on Etsy...and that was in a matter of 15 minutes after I had posted them. Really was the fastest I have ever sold a pair. Must have been the color and hopefully the pattern. Now I am starting on a pair of yellow socks and think might do a lacy pattern...but not sure. Just want a break from all these cable socks I have been doing. ...and I love cables.
