Summer time.....and the knitting is easy.
Yep, the title is super cheesy...but so am I most of the time, so there it is.
I can't express how much I adore this colorway by Katie of LoveSticks. It's just so perfectly delicious.
I'm such a sucker for self striping yarn and edible colorways.
Ahhhh ~ True love!
Socks knit using magic loop & size 2 needles ~ Yarn Harlots Basic Sock Recipe. Top Down Bonnet from Hello Yarn. Magic Loop & size 3 needles.
Now that's a generous skein of yarn, Right?
Cast on for Fifi ~ slow and steady as she goes. Knitting is a dream w/Calmer and I am so digging the cable work.
I am modifying the pattern to add length to the sleeves and the body. The original is too cropped and has capped sleeves. While very cute, I will get more use out of it with the mods.
A few weeks ago, I purchased a sampler pack from Karen Jordan of Sharing on Etsy. These mini socks were knit with her "Polo" colorway. Cast on 40 stitches and again, basic sock recipe. Magic Loop on size 1.
I call these little guys..."Hey Mickey" and they will be gifted to my Nieces newest arrival ~ due any day now!
All my goodies from my wonderful 'No Sheep For You' Pal, Yvette. Yummy cotton yarn, scrumptious chocolate and more.
Thank you so much, Yvette. You are such a sweet lady and I very much appreciate the thoughtful package you put together for me. I am a huge fan of all things orange, so I know I will find something fabulous to create from the lovely yarn you have sent me.
Keep in touch and thank you very much!
This is how I manage to complete my projects so quickly. I have help ;)
Jack is currently working on my "Pumpkin King" socks for the re-release of Nightmare Before Christmas 3D this fall. He is knitting them on size 1, using Magic Loop with LoveSticks 'Day of the Dead' colorway.
I can't complain, he's doing a fantastic job. There might even be enough leftover for Jack to make a little something for himself.
Rum Runner..............from The Booty Club!
