Finished Objects and Some Works in Progress


I finished the Master Coriolis socks finally last week, and I love them.

Plymouth Sockotta Sock Yarn on US 1 1/2
Pattern is from New Pathway for Sock Knitters: Book One

I cast on and finished my sister’s hat.


Yarn Harlot’s An Unoriginal Hat done in Malabrigo Chunky in Whales Road (I love this color)


My sister actually really likes the hat.

Finally I am working away on my Bartolomew’s Tantalizing Socks.


I am almost done with the heel but when I started the heel I made a mistake and I put too many stitches on the heel and I am hoping that by the end of the heel it will work all out *crosses fingers*. I am loving this yarn sooooooo much. This is my first time working with Socks that Rock and I am so excited that I am in the sock club for the next year. I hope to have a close-up of the front of the socks soon so the linen stitch can show up.

I am also working on my some socks for my mom but shhh they are a secret.

Finally they are done!


THE socks are finally done!

Uptown Boot Socks from Favorite Socks knit with Cherry Tree Hill Sockittome Blue/Green Potluck.


I love how the stitches look.


Really proud of the gusset too. These socks journeyed all the way across the country with me. I have never been to California and I these socks met the fun underground knitters at the Society of Neuroscience Conference.

I know this blog has been quiet for a long time but between work and travel and grad school I have been busy. I have now sent out 3 out of 13 applications to grad school. 10 left and then it is knitting all the time. I can't wait for that. In anticipation I started this pair of Bartholomew's Tantalizing Socks from New Pathways for Sock Knitters: Book One.


This is done in Socks that Rock Lightweight in Tide Pool. I am loving how the colors are working up, and now I just need to finish the sock on my size 1 needle.

On some bad news, one of my Harmony size 2 needles broke today but Knitpicks customer service is sending me a new one . YAY for amazing customer service.
