Sockstory

I think I’m a little late to the party answering Lolly’s Sock History questions for Socktoberfest. But better late than never, you know. When did you start making socks? Did you teach yourself or were you taught by a friend or relative? or in a class? I started making socks in April, 2002. As a…

Sock Talk

There is someone out there claiming to have the fastest pair of socks in the East. But she’s wrong because these are the fastest socks in the East: I finished Heather’s birthday socks in time. And this is most definitely the fastest I have ever knit a pair of socks. I started last Tuesday morning…

Decisions, Decisions

Remember these? The long-suffering, never-ending, knit on size 0, Final Four socks? I started these on April 2nd. Pathetic, I tell ya. Of course, I’ve finished two other pairs of socks since starting these, but still, I’m sick of them and determined to finish. Here’s my motivation for finishing. Mmmm. Trekking XXL. For the Trek…

Sock Stash

Hi. My name is Carole and I have a sock yarn problem. It’s a little scary that it took 4 pictures to capture all of my sock yarn on film. There’s enough yarn there for 39 pairs of socks. Whoa. Now granted, some of it, like the Cherry Tree Hill, could be used for shawls…

Ready! Set! Action!

I had a very pleasant weekend. It was great to have two whole days with no holiday pressure, no social commitments and just plain nothing that had to be done. I was able to spin on Saturday and I’m almost finished with the BFL. I’m looking forward to seeing what happens with the colors when…

Reflections on Knitting, 2005

I saw this post over at PumpkinMama’s and I thought it was a great way to sum up my previous year of knitting. Top 5 for 2005 1.New Technique: Oh, I learned so much this year! I knit lace for the first time and that was pretty cool. But I also learned to spin and…

Walk This Way

Allow me to present, for Cara, finished Jaywalker socks. The yarn is Trekking XXL and they are being modeled by the recipient, my stepdaughter, Jessica. [You’ll notice the cell phone in the photo. Jessica is never far from the phone. I think she’s had a phone in her hand since she was 2.] I love…

Cable Twist Socks – Finis!

Lookee here! I finished Dale’s Cable Twist Rib socks. I only started these last July, that’s not too bad, right? The first sock was almost completed but it’s been languishing in the knitting basket since August when I had cast on the watermelon-striped Vesper sock yarn for Hannah. Then I had some Trekking I wanted…

Tag! I’m It!

Ahem. Cough, cough, sputter, sputter. Meme Meme Meeeeee I have been tagged by the fair Julia. And, ya know what? It is nice to be asked! Having been asked, the least I can do is answer. What is your all time favorite yarn to knit with? I guess it depends on what I’m knitting. For…

The Land of Tricks and Treats, Part 3

Once upon a time, on Halloween night, an evil witch tried to steal a pair of hand knit socks. These socks were knit from Vesper Sock yarn, and therefore, very coveted in the household. However, as the evil witch tried to make her escape, she was spotted by a young Civil War infantry soldier on…
