Can you believe it? This pair was a fairly simple pattern as it was just a 1:1 ribbing, but boy, do I love 'em.
This is the hand-painted yarn, the coloring is going to look great with my new pair of Sloggers Clear Clogs once I get 'em. I'm just waiting for an e-mail from the yarn shop so we can drive up to pick the up and to shop for yarn for the next pair of socks.
I'm thinking about looking at yarn for the summer season, something in a lighter color than these first two pair.
Looking at the pics, it looks as though there's a stripe in the leg section and an entirely different look in the foot. Cool.
I ribbed the leg and the top knitting the sole in stockinette.

I enjoy using the 40" circular needle and knit these "Magic Loop" socks [two at a time].
Oh, shoes for showing off all my hard work . . . . .

Don't they look Fine? Now, I must shop for a pair of shoe that will show 'em off just so ! ! !

then black and white mode. I thought the b&w I was as much help as either.Went to Barnes & Noble for decaf and to browse the mags and knitting books. Only really interested in knitting sock and especially on a circular needle. Am beginning a pair knitted from the cuff down just to get into the knitting mode again. Really want to knit a pair from Toes-Up ! !
So many beautiful yarns available.

My pressboard and my design wall are convenient to each other. While I really love my pressboard that Ron and I made [24" x 48"] I know I do need to make a more permanent and larger design wall.
I hope to make more throw-sized quilt tops than queen so a 50" x 70" design wall would be more convenient than what's up on my wall now.
While we were in Columbia yesterday we stopped at the yarn store. So many luscious yarns.
