2 more pairs

unplanned 011

so, i did finish my socks! and of course, it's too warm to wear sock now. the pattern is "burning rings of fire".

and, i did buy a couple more hanks of this yarn at the fiberfest we had here.

unplanned 051

i did pretty good at the fiberfest, and only got a wee bit of yarn. the two hanks above are the unplanned peacock studio's twisty sock.

and, i also got some more of the color changing cottons, and another hank of sock yarn (i'll have to get some pictures!).

since i finished the green socks, i cast on, and finished, another pair ...

rivercat3 014

rivercat3 003

the pattern is called "rivercat" and is available on knitty. the yarn is dream in color "smooshy".

and now, i'm scraping around for a sock to knit on, since i can't start another ska challenge sock until tomorrow. perhaps i should knit a 2nd sock for one of my orphans?

green is my favorite color

green has been my favorite color for ages. one year, for christmas, my niece gave me a bunch of green "things". things: a variety of soaps and lotions from bath & bodyworks. they were all green in color, but different scents. because, apparently the scent didn't matter as long as the item was the correct "color".

... i still laugh about that !

and, regarding the color, i like most greens. light green, mint green, lime, chartreuse, pine green, spruce, brackish, grass green, etc.

and this shade ... for the spring.

next weekend there will be a local fiberfest. it's part of something bigger, but i'll take my wee fiberfest!

one of my favorite vendors will be in attendance ... the unplanned peacock studio.

the above sock is knitted with their "twisty sock", a superwash 2ply merino. ♥ love ♥ !

this is the same yarn i used to knit my poppy socks last fall.

but, back to the green. the green socks are for skamay12. the challenge included knitting a pattern from the designer of the month, who is kirsten kapur. the pattern is called "burning rings of fire" and is a free ravelry download.

i'm being "good" and have actually started sock #2. and, i started something else too ...
