I have turned the heel on my pencil sock, and started the leg. Now it’s straight knitting until I switch to the yarn for the eraser part!
The stationery set is coming along! The “paper” sock is done, and boy is it a long one! It’s a little less than knee length. I did have to make a bit of a change at the end. The yarn has a little stripe of medium red toward the end – it wasn’t enough to… Continue reading Sock It To Me Monday
Last week I started knitting the first of a pair of mismatch socks – the (Ravelry link) Stationery Set from Yarn Enabler. I bought this yarn a couple years ago, and I’m glad I did, as I don’t know that the dyer is still in business, though here is the link to her site anyway.… Continue reading Sock It To Me Monday: Stationery Set
First thing first – my Haunted socks are done! The original intent was to make these much longer socks – maybe even knee length. But in the end I just couldn’t face making them any longer. Well, that just means I have pretty much of this yarn leftover, which will be pretty great for something!… Continue reading Sock It To Me Monday: Haunted and Iceland
The Haunted socks are almost done! I have about an inch of ribbing done and plan on maybe another inch or so, and that’s it. Looking forward to having them finished 🙂 If you are knitting socks, how are they going?

I do have off for part of this week and am planning on getting a lot of knitting done, but we’ll see how that goes 🙂 If you… Continue reading Sock It To Me Monday
Making good progress on my Halloween socks – I am about halfway up my feet. One sad thing – I thought this yarn was self-striping. No such luck! It just kind of looked that way initially. Now that I am up to my final stitch count to fit my feet, it turns out they are… Continue reading Sock It To Me Monday: Haunted Socks
I started my Halloween socks over the weekend! The yarn is Strong Sock in the Haunted House colorway from Ms Monster Creations on Etsy, who is also the dyer of my big Halloween yarn advent from both last year and this year. I did not know (or remember) that it was self-striping, so that was… Continue reading Sock It To Me Monday: Spooky Edition
