Sox in the Making


While I have free time during our daily outings
this pair of purpley-striped ribbed sox 
are stashed in the console between the front seats and
get a couple more rounds completed each trip.
Eventually they'll get finished
in the meantime my hands are kept busy.
You know - Idle Hands Are The Devil's Workshop


This goldenrod pair is Pointelle 
 and is on it's THIRD beginning
and now being knit using Cascade Heritage superwash wool.

For some reason this particular  pattern is not co-operating with me.
The first two attempts were with Jojoland Melody yarn
and after the second time of ripping them back
I decided that Jojoland Melody was JINXed for 
Pointelle.
So I've begun once again and
 hoping third time [and a yarn change] is the charm. 




This minty morsel is Hedera

Our Rav Cookie A's KAL is a little different from last year's Cookie KAL.
After a group vote, Pointelle AND Hedera are the patterns chosen for this first KAL.
As long as a pattern is begun in January
we have until the end of February to finish either
one or both in order for them to be eligible
for a chance to win [picked by Mr. Random Generator] 
great things
from the individuals who have donated such lovelies as YARN.


Today is a snow day - have 4-5 inches of snow.

Hugs

  5. Love all of them however the green ones look especially pretty to me perhaps since the design is just emerging. Gold will catch up soon.

    Not sure if I told you about my Temptation page I added to my site or not I wanted to put your site on there if you don't mind.
    Also I am having a giveaway and whoever wins gets a gift to one of my followers shop. Like yours for example and if you enter and win then you can pick a shop you like to buy something from.
