FO's & WiPs

Finished Objects ! ! ! 

Hope it's just the perspective that make my ankles look HUGE
These are one of the 6-on-a-stick sockfest.
Wilton Cake Icing Dye dyed
Finished ! ! ! ! 

From the 6-on-a-sick project:
again, Wilton Cake Icing Dye dyed.
L♥ve 'em.

On to Works-in-Progress
again, the third and last pair in the 6-on-a-stick project.

Frogged [that's ripped out to non-knitters]
this pair from mid-foot back to the leg/cuff part of the sock.
I am trying a brand new technique I've learned.
The Afterthought Heel.
Afterthought being that a length of waste yarn [in this case a piece of blue yarn] is knit into the sock
at the point where the heel is to be knit 
after the sock is knit to the
toe and finished.

At that point,
the stitches on either side of the waste yarn our picked up on needles and the heel is knit.

I'll post photos as I go along.

Next WiP:

Sunshine and Lime
my Camp Loopy Project II socks.

Knit from the toe up in stockinette stitch
will use the afterthought heel technique.
Project II for Camp Loopy must use
Cable Stitch in the design.
I will be knitting 
a Cookie A designed sox by the name of
what else? but
a cables with lace pattern.


Very first purchase of

  1. I just love your socks.....

  2. My jaw is on the floor looking at all the socks you have knit! You Rock! I especially love the striped ones in the last picture! Hugs to you my friend. So glad you are back and hope you are feeling 100%! xx

  3. I love your yellow and green socks!

  4. I have a busy day today but when I spotted the green socks glowing on my blogger dashboard I just had to have a look, lol!
    I'm afraid that now I've seen those delicious stripey ones and the bright yummy citrusy sunshine ones the greens will have to be in third favourite position.
    Thanks for brightening my winter day today :).

  5. From now on I'm looking at feet in Wal-Mart! But seriously, will you wait a month or two, I'm afraid it's too hot here in Mid-mo for those!
    They are adorable!!!

  6. I love all your socks! I noticed you're using the afterthought heel. I want to try that on my next pair.

  7. PLEASE bring them next week!!!
    Love all of them.

  8. Longer cuffs will make ankels look smaller 8^)

  9. You are my ambitious sock-knitting friend! I love seeing your sock projects.

  10. LOVE the sox ! ! ! Your feet sure will be warm this winter ! !

  11. omg! how good are you!! Socks always amaze me that people can knit them! I'll stick to my straight lines and blankets!! haha xx

  12. I'm lovin' those socks. I've said it before and I'll say it again.....Oh how I wish I could knit!!! LOL LOL



  13. What a fun collection of socks! That first pair are really green. They'll be great for St. Patrick's day.

    Two at time magic loop style is the way I knit socks also.
