Fair Isle Border Socks Completed!

And finally finished them...They turned out really wonderful and hopefully they will sell in my shop. Good thing I got these done as got 3 orders for the Scrunch must be coming into Christmas  as I seem to get orders for the Scrunch Socks around this time. You would think I would know better and just stock load the Scrunch socks but alas the orders are for custom socks so the fit has to be correct. I am on it now!

The Board Sock...Navy, gray and white. Love the pattern.

Harvest Time

It is that time of the year when I start to clean out my gardens and harvest the last of the tomatoes. Still have some pepper plants standing and will watch them before any frost gets to them...but for now my tomatoes are all picked and ripening off the vine! Yum.

Fair Isle Border Socks

This weekend started a pair of "Border Socks" a simple Fair Isle stranded pattern from Interweave Knits, 2011 edition. Had wanted to try this out and had a wonderful Navy yarn from Knit Picks. Pattern is using white and grey. Fairly simple and a really nice look. May do this in different combinations as it looks like something that would be popular on Etsy.

Knitting 2 sides at a time.
