Some Fun This Weekend

This past weekend I played a little with the customizing software for my embroidery machine. I bought a sock design last Christmas and have been wanting to do this for some time. So I duplicated the pattern as many times as I could to cover the hoop area and added some lettering. This is what I came up with. It has turned out exactly like I wanted. And it's a cool way to use some of the varigated thread I have in my drawer. So dear Sis, would you like me to make you one too? Just let me know the color t-shirt you want it on if you do.

And here are the color choices I have in varigated thread. I can also do solids with different color heels and toes. Look even my embroidery machine can do short row heels. How cool is that (cause I sure can't, not yet anyway). And look how the orange thread pooled, just like yarn.
Happy Knitting!!
