3 Finishes This Month
Hi! I'm Tweezle, and this is my first post here. It's really great to see all the socks being knitted. You had no idea how much the photos and posts have inspired me.
I have 3 finishes this month. The first two pairs are made from the Country Cottage pattern "Iowa Cruise Socks". I used Lion Brand Fisherman's Wool for the first pair. The kids and I were fooling around and tried the Kool-Aid dying method from "Socks, Socks, Socks". Each of us picked out a color - so that's why they look the way the do.
The second pair was made from Lion Brand Fisherman's Wool and Bartlett Yarn. These were for my DH for Valentine's Day.
My third pair was made for DS. These socks are knit from Opal Masterpiece and I think they are soooo UGLY! They aren't DS's favorites either, but he smiled and said they'd wear just the same, so he's still happy with them.
Currently on my needles is the first of "Gentleman's Plain Winter Socks" from Nancy Bush's Vintage Socks book. I'm knitting them in Trekking XXL #104. The color is soooooo gorgeous! If you'd like to see my progress, they're posted on my blog.
