gitchermitts and see my Stalkers
If you haven't stumbled over yet - Hello Yarn has posted the pdf for the much coveted Fiddlehead Mittens here. The kits were snapped up so quickly that it cause a major snafu and killed the server for a bit over there. I am settling for the pattern for now - well mostly because I can't get one but then there is that little obstacle...as in I have done like one, yes one, stranded project. But I must try these...someday.
I also finished up these socks last night. The pattern is Stalkers by John Brinegar over at Yarn Ball Boogie. I always get excited to see my bloglines light up when Yarn Ball has a new post - he seems like such a fun, clever, sarcastic person. Anyways, loved the pattern - and the resulting big, thick, cabley socks. Again, I think I should have went with a solid, but down the rabbit hole I went to a variegated - will I ever learn? I feel as though I have gyped my cables out of their proper "shazaam". Next time. The yarn is Firebird from the Blue Moon Fiber Arts Rockin' Socks Club.
I have gotten a pair of socks done each month, so far this year (I know that is like two months, whatever) - I'd like to keep the trend going - because I would have 12 new pairs of socks by the end of the year - and that is a good thing.
This is Noro sock yarn in colorway #95. The feel is a bit rustic but I do like the wait for color changes, it is exciting to see what is ahead. I am using Hello Yarn's Simple Sock pattern with a charming picot cuff. This is my traveling sock. I'm considering casting on a only-knit-when-i-can-concentrate sock as well...that LaDigitessa Wollmeise is beckoning me like a siren, I wound it up just to admire the little cake. I think it needs to be become something fabulous - I know, why not the La Digitessa Sock - I can't help but consider a flutter?
