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!
The yarn is Radioactive Rainbow from Knitted Wit, and I didn’t really use a pattern, it’s just my plain toe-up sock recipe. If anyone is interested in the method, let me know and I will drone on about it in as much detail as you can stand 🙂 Happy Pride Month!
It is coming right along! This really is just beautiful yarn, and I’m enjoying knitting it up 🙂

Wonder Woman socks are complete! The yarn for these socks is the Wonder Woman self-striping colorway by Turtlepurl. In addition to the one linked above, they do have this same colorway with a gold mini-skein for toes and heels, which would save the striping awkwardness I have here 🙂 I didn’t have a pattern, but… Continue reading Sock It To Me Monday
The Wonder Woman socks are coming along! By the scale I have 43 grams of yarn left, so I’m a bit over halfway. I just did the first leg increase, and have a few more to go. So far they fit really well 🙂 I’m a little bothered by the way the heel messed up… Continue reading Sock It To Me Monday
