Croc Socks

Just off the needles... Croc Socks! This is one of Monica's patterns. It was a lot of fun to knit up. This is Lorna's Laces Sock Multi - Sand Ridge. They fit so well and I love the lace and cabling.
Now I need to decide what I will work on next... I have 2 more of Monica's patterns going plus a few others.
Have a great week! More later.

a finished pair of socks. I have really slowed down in my sock knitting. I don't have that frantic feeling to get a lot of them done this year (one pair a month seems to be it for me this year). So here are my Twin Rib Socks, knit in Wisdom Yarns Los Angeles colorway with 66 stitches on size 1 dpn's. I love the colors in this yarn, but I won't be knitting with it again. This yarn is so fuzzy it sticks to itself as you pull it out of the skein (what a nightmare this was at times), I hope it won't pill too badly when I wash them. And they match pretty closely even though there were two breaks in the yarn in the second sock (the one on my left foot). Next up, I will finish my Croc Socks (I have started the second one already).
Have a great week. More later!

Nope, Nothing To See Here

It's pitiful...the lack of knitting going on. This is all I have to show since I last blogged. I finally finished the first Twin Rib sock I started in October and started the second (until I realized I had cast on too few stitches and had to rip it out and start again). It's pitiful...I may have mentioned that. Monica has some great news and some great looking socks (if you haven't already been over to hear it).
We're under a BLIZZARD WARNING... maybe I'll get some knitting done this weekend. Pitiful.
