Spontaneous Sox ! ! ! !


A week or so ago a couple of knitters on Rav womaninashoe and hotazzknitter
introduced me to a wonderful Rav group Itty Bitty Knits
They are having a Patchwork Sockalong hosted by Susan B Anderson
blogger and knit designer
Knitting from my 'Leftovers Stash' was just in the organizational stage
but I just jumped right into the fray.

Just grabbed a yarn and began knitting threw in a bit of Fair Isle knitting
and before I knew it a week later I have this pair of sox!

Not too bad, eh?
But that was last week
this is this week.

*******************
The first pair was nice
but not quite what I had in mind.
I pictured something 'hot'!
hmmmmmm .  .  . ? ? ? ?
Ahhhhh, now I know
I want something brighter
wait, wait,
no just brighter
nope,
I want, I want >  >  >
spontaneously LOUD bright

So, now we're getting there:

Isn't this a hoot!
More to come, you can bet on that :*)

  9. Your socks are getting brighter and better with each pair, or shall I say with each sock! They must be a delight to knit.

  10. I like them. You may not believe this, but I'm knitting a pair of scrappy socks. Mine aren't totally spontaneous because I'm doing them 2AAT and the yarn will be in the same order on each sock, however, I am putting colors together that normally I wouldn't. I've been watching the Singlehanded Knitter for a couple of weeks. I like her podcast and applaud her for being an inspiration to us.
