I started my Halloween socks for this year! This entire project is from deep in the vaults. The pattern is Fright Night by Lara Smoot, who took all of her patterns off the market a few years about, so I’m glad I bought it when I did. The gray sparkle yarn was dyed by Skeins… Continue reading Sock It To Me Monday
I got the last little bit of DH’s socks done this evening! He then engaged in a little sock modeling: Well, they fit OK and he had fun with it, so why not? These are my usual no-pattern toe up socks, and the yarn is Katla Icelandic lambswool sokkaband.
I am SO close to finishing DH’s socks! SO CLOSE! But now it’s 11 pm and I have to go to work tomorrow, and it’s just not happening tonight. Tomorrow is another day! Do you ever stay up late trying to finish things for no good reason at all?
I turned the heel on DH’s socks yesterday, so now it’s straight up the legs until I run out of yarn or get bored! They are kind of hard to photograph because of the color and because I didn’t get too much farther than the heels. Hopefully much more progress by next Monday!
Over the weekend I started a pair of generic socks for DH. The yarn is sport weight, and they are getting done so fast! I’m hoping to get these done in pretty short order. He has requested a few more pairs, and I’d like to get one more pair done for myself this year and… Continue reading Sock It To Me Monday

But that is OK – I am happy with the length as they are. The lace pattern… Continue reading Sock It To Me Monday
Still working on the Elizabeth Montague socks! I’ve got about 2 more pattern repeats and then a couple inches of ribbing, and they are done. So hopefully this week sometime!
Yup – still working on my Elizabeth Montague socks! However, now that I finished Bonbori, I’m expecting things to move along a bit quicker 🙂 There are two options with these socks, normal length or knee length. I decided on knee length, because I don’t have many longer pairs of socks and it is a… Continue reading Sock It To Me Monday
Still working on the Elizabeth Montague socks from KDD’s Bluestocking club. It’s actually a pretty quick and fun knit, but I’ve been trying to focus on Bonbori so I can get done with the darn thing! Anyway. EM socks are coming along – the heels are turned! This pattern uses a heel that I had… Continue reading Sock It To Me Monday
