The Black Hole socks are done! DH was having fun posing 🙂 I know these look like they are hanging off the front of his toes, but his feet really are that long! Anyway, whew! Glad those are done! Going to give myself a little break before the next pair of socks. Time for some… Continue reading Sock It To Me Monday
Making some progress on DH’s Black Hole socks, but not a lot since last week. I got no knitting done this evening, and it’s not looking great for tomorrow either. This afternoon I got an idea about how to move around some furniture (and get rid of some of a couple pieces) to solve some… Continue reading Sock It To Me Monday

They are reasonably festive, and I am pretty happy with how they turned out! They are my standard plain vanilla… Continue reading Sock It To Me Monday: Xmas in July Done!
My scrappy mismatch Christmas socks are proceeding along. After the charcoal stripe I’m currently working on, I have two more miniskein stripes for each sock and a charcoal between them. So not much further to go! How are your projects (crafty or not) going?
Slow but steady progress on my scrappy stripey Christmas socks – hopefully there will be more stripe to show by next week! Are you doing Christmas in July socks? How are they going?
After poking around in my stash, I found some lovely charcoal gray sock yarn that I had actually just unraveled from a shawl I wasn’t wearing to use in my Christmas scrappy stripe socks. So here’s what I’ve got: Please excuse the terrible indoor nighttime photo – will get a better one as things progress.… Continue reading Stash to the Rescue!
