Mixed bag

Mixed bag of stuff to post about. That is another
way of saying my knitting has been dull. I've worked
a little (very very little) on brown socks.

Finished up the first footie sock for Tiffany.
56 stitches, size 3 needles.  1" ribbing.

Double stitch, which I LOVE LOVE LOVE....

Ruth has buttons for the sweet baby sweater she finished a while ago.

Here are the socks she is working on....

Catawampus pattern by Sock-A-Holic Katie. 
 Yarn is Alpaca with a Twist Socrates. She loves the yarn.

I like them a lot...

Martha made a cutie pie hat to go with her baby outfit.
 She is also working on socks:

 The Spun Monkey Dyeworks, Monkeysuit Here an Oink, color.
The sock pattern is Waving Lace Socks by Evelyn A. Clark,
 published in book Favorite Socks by Interweave Press.
She is  very happy with this combination of yarn and pattern.   I like it too.

I should go back thru the blog and count the weeks that one
of us is not working on a sock...I bet it will be very few posts...

I need to start something a little more exciting. I really enjoyed the
sweater I just made.  I am having fun with  Tiffany's little socks, but they
are hard on the hands because of the elastic.

Have a great week. It is brrrrrr x 100 cold here today...

p.s.  I get to see Ruth on Tuesday....YIPPEE !!!!

Don't you think that socks are the pacifier of knitters. They keep us happy, are not necessarily too creative but necessary for the excess energy we have to knit? Of course we always have one going.
