Sock Update ! ! !

Here's my toe-up KAL pair that involved D and I. Love the Opal yarn. I did the bind-off a bit frilly to top them off with a flair ! !
This wool/bamboo yarn was great to work with - and since my sox-knitting frenzy has been so far all for me, Me, ME I thought perhaps it was time to knit a pair for my DH. They're from Melissa Morgan-Oaks book [again, I love every pattern] and are The Classic Sock knit from the toe up.
Received a surprize package from my wonderful d-i-l this week. A treasure of wooden spools of thread. I can add them to my retro spool holder she gave me for Christmas.
Was without electricity yesterday [from 2:45 a.m. until 8:00 o'clock p.m.] after a tree brought down the power lines somewhere in the neighborhood during our rain/lightening/wind storm. In this past week Jeff City has received five inches of much needed rain. I'm sure all the trees, shrubs and lawns welcome every drop.

  1. Are wooden spools rare these days? Hummm, I have lots of catching up to do. I didn't notice whether the spools I bought recently are wooden. I will have to check it out. The socks are great colors!
