Sock Update

We interrupt this vacation blog with a little sock knitting content. Vacation viewers, please come back soon.

The local Socks Without Partners (SWP) support group bade farewell to a dear member not long ago.
Mockery sock #1 ran off (understandably, and on more than one level) with Mockery sock #2, to a happy wooly footy life together.


The SWP board of trustees wished the pair well, but not before accepting new member
Outside In sock #1.


Monkey sock #1 and Cables & Corrugations sock #1 are eager to join upon completion.




1. Mockery Socks, Conjoined Creations Flat Feet yarn, US#2 dpns. For me. Great pattern + great yarn + much fun = socks I love.

2. Outside In, Creatively Dyed Yarns, US#2 dpns. Bought this yarn at this year's Great Lakes Fiber Fest and could not wait to cast on. Perfect pattern showed up on Knitty mere days later. Coincidence? I think not. For me. MUST take pictures of heel-in-progress on second sock. You will pee a little.

3. Monkey Socks, Misti Alpaca "Birds In Paradise", US#2 dpns. I think I like the pattern/yarn combination. Not for me. Not totally sold yet, but I DO like the picot edge.

4. Cables & Corrugations, Malabrigo Merino Sock, Kollage Yarns square US#2 dpns. LOVE the square needles -- gift from sock clubber Melinda. LOVE the yarn -- bought at Great Yarns in Everett WA. LOVE the pattern -- now that I got past the five inches of stockinette at the beginning of the toe. For me (adapted to 72sts). Too bad the Cat Bordhi knitalong only has one more session

ohhh.... looking at my socks as a torrid love affair makes them all the more interesting!

Sigh. I wish I liked making socks. I only like wearing them. Heyyyy. You like making them and I like wearing them. I'm getting an idea here...

I really like that outside in sock. I think that you should make some for me. Think about it. Why put all that effort into making a pair socks and then be the only one to enjoy them?

The Monkey looks like it has a heart on it from the way the colors appeared in the yarn.
