Sock Update

These are the Baby Backward Rib socks I have been working on. My friend Patty gave me this Misti Alpaca Sock yarn for my birthday. My Mom loves them and too bad they are too small for her. I have some Unique Sheep yarn that is very similar so I will make her some for her birthday in October.

My Law and Order Rerun socks are hibernating because when I went to go a pedicure (see below), I sat on the needles and they broke. Now waiting for replacements from Knit Picks. I was almost finished, too! I had to frog my Wendy's Summer of Socks Pattern. It was just too lacy and big for me so thanks to Joansie I am doing Blueberry Waffle socks and I love it! Thanks Joansie!

Found a new indie dyer -- Colorplay! Very nice! Featured here is Clark's Pool. Her colors and rich and vibrant and the fiber is soft and squishy.I also got a hank of Plucky Kniiter's Sock in "The Gang's All Here"

Here's what I'm wearing on my feet now (not the shoes -- there from my sister's wedding!) Very sparkly!

I love that pattern on your sock and I really love that green skein of yarn. My kind of color.

Hi Jill,

Thanks so much for commenting on my blog - I'd lost your link when I got Avi's old computer. Love your sock projects, and all of your gorgeous yarn. Your sister and her husband both look radiantly happy. :) And your boys are very handsome.

I think you need some of those open toe pedicure socks to show off your toe bling. So glam!

Um, Jill, my birthday is coming up, that Clarks Pool would be just perfect. :: grin ::
I like the pattern and yarn you chose for that sock you are working on, you amaze me that you have time to knit so much and get so much done.
