There’s Nothing like a New Pair of Socks

I tried to make them both the same.  Honest I did.  But I just couldn’t help myself.  Look at this yarn.  It’s super!  Jaala Spiro is a genius at dyeing yarn.  I think this is the third time I have joined one of her yarn clubs and I have never been disappointed.  She plies her wares on Etsy under the name Knitcircus.  If I weren’t so lazy, I’d put in a link.  Just type in Knitcircus.  You’ll find it.

Oh, yeah.  The pattern.  It’s from Curiosity Cabinet 3 again.  My socks are longer, have a cuff and there are no slip stitches on the heel back.  Otherwise, it’s the same.

Happy Socks Happy Feet

happy 001   I bought the yarn at Knitters Day Out last Fall.  It has all my favorite colors.  The pattern is from Curiosity Cabinet 3.  I should say patterns.  I couldn’t make up my mind so they are different.  They have the rounded toe that I like rather than what the patterns wanted.

Since Christmas, I have been in repair mode.  I shortened my new pants, mended a hole in an old shirt that I can’t get rid of, and removed the elastic from two pairs of capris. I need to get some more elastic to finish them.

glove 001  This is a glove that I made my daughter last year.  Somehow they were caught in a hinge.  I’ve got my work cut out for me.
