Knitted Socks

I have a confession.  I love hand knit socks.  I love the way they feel on my feet.  I love the many different colors that sock yarn comes in.  I love that the socks that I knit for myself are custom sized for just my feet.  They will never fit anyone else the exact same way that they fit me.  I love that hand knit socks are my main “selfish” knit.

That being said, I finished a new pair of hand knit socks the other day.  The pattern is Scatterby Socks by Amy Stringer.  They are knit with Fiesta Yarns Baby Boom sock yarn in the Caramel Apple colorway.

Here they are in all their loveliness:



Well, I guess that’s all for today. Thanks for coming along on my journey.



Seeking Warmth

It has been quite cold here the last few days.  In response to that, I tend to gravitate toward projects that will offer some kind of warmth.  Today, I finished a cowl.  It’s called the Integral Entrelac Cowl by Kate Winkler.  The cowl is knit in the round instead of flat like Entrelac is usually worked. I used my hand spun yarn to knit the cowl. I am quite pleased with the way the finished project turned out.




I look forward to wearing it.  The lovely colors and the promise of warmth are truly appealing.


Thanks for allowing me to share with you!
