Giving Thanks

Socks Galore

I haven't blogged in long time (but I am trying not to stay away so long) and so it looks like I have been busy knitting, This is a span of 4 months or so, so just a lazy blogger and not-so-much a prolific knitter! First up is my Fishbone Gansey socks. Pattern by Anne Hansen, yarn is The Plucky Knitter. I love this, but the yarn had too much nylon it, and I hope that once I wear them and wash them a few times they will soften up.

Dublin Bay socks and the yarn is Skein Queen in Summer Bunting. Happy socks for sure! Really loved this pattern!

These are Kristen Kapur's 2009 Mystery Socks that yes, I finished late in 2010. This was a hard one for me. I knit toe-up, Magic Loop and an afterthought heel. These were cuff-down, short row heel, DPNs! Yarn is Madtosh -- truly fabulous yarn!

This is Misti Alpaca yarn and a free pattern of their website. Yarn was bought at Bobbins Nest in Santa Clara which is one of my favorites! If you click on the picture you can see the cute cuff.

I have knit some hats and neck wraps too, but those will be for another post. Don't want to shock all of you!

Too Cute!

Yes, I am still here. Just long enough to show off my adorable nephew Vince. He is 9 months old already! Such a big boy now and adorable in his Candy Can hat!

But not for long!
Oh well -- he wore it for about 30 seconds!

I do have more finished objects to share. I was feeling guilty for just sharing stash and club shipments. All that yarn, and really just piling up in my dresser. I decidied to sell some and really start knitting more. Look for another post soooner than later with some knitted items.
