Wow It's Been a While

I've been doing some secret knitting and now that my friend Nicole has them, I can show you the socks I've been working on.

It is a cool bubble pattern in her favorite color, orange (with a little yellow thrown in for good measure). Aren't they pretty? They will certainly brighten up a cold, dreary winter's day. The yarn is a blend of silk, wool and bamboo that was so easy to knit with and they are very soft and squishy.

I loved the pattern so much, that I'm working on a pair for me. The colorway is called Watermelon and you can't really tell from the picture, but it has little black spots in it to resemble the seeds. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I have enough yarn to finish them as this pattern eats it up quickly.

I have finished one other project, the mitered squares scarf. The picture is kind of washed out, the colors are dark and fall like and I can't wait to wear it.

I do have some scrapbooking things to post, but I'll leave those for tomorrow.

Beautiful socks! Love the watermelon yarn. One of these days I think I might learn how to knit something other than a rectangle. I need a knitting friend to sit down with.

Oh my gosh! Those socks are beautiful and that color!?! Love them. Do you sell them? Knitting is one of those crafts I've never mastered.

I love those socks. I do knit weaters and stuff, but I've never done socks. I'm not sure that I know anyone that would take care of them well enough to warrant all that hard work! The watermelon ones are goinf to be great! Hope you have enough wool!

Thank you so much, Cathy.

I am head over heels in love with my brilliant orange socks. They are so soft and wonderful. I especially love how much care and time goes into making them. I am now the proud owner of two pairs (one from a friend two years ago) and I treat them like the precious treasure they are.
