I'm On A Roll!!

Whoo Hoo!! I finished another pair of socks. I am on a roll, that is two pair of socks in a weeks time. This is a cables and rib pattern. I used this pattern for a sock class I just did. Advance beginning socks with an intro to cables. The girls in the class did really well. I wish I had taken pictures of theirs with the digital camera. I have so many socks OTN but that didn't stop me from starting two more pair today. I will post pictures of those when I have a little more done on them.

The one pair is a Feather and Fan sock. I am knitting that in Patons Kroy for the sockamaniac KAL and the other is a Four- Stitch Reticulated Pattern from the Sensational Knitted Socks book ( thanks Karen). I am knitting that one in Trekking and Fortissima, and I love it.

I finished this simple drop stitch scarf this weekend too. I love the Mango Moon Ribbon yarn. It has such a nice feel to it. This will match my Easter outfit beautifully.

Well I don't have too much else going on. A lot of unfinished things to work on, but I am really enjoying these socks right now, so I am going to go sit and knit.

Happy knitting all!

You are such a fast knitter! I want your pattern for your cable sock (hint, hint). And your scarf is beautiful.So you had some empty needles you had to fill did you? Can't wait to see the new socks you put OTN.

Hi Aunt Monica!!! I really like the socks that you posted. They are so PRETTY!!!! I have to go to bed now so I'll talk to you again later! LOVE YOU TONS! (Oh, thank you so much for the shawl. I love it to pieces!!!!)

I love your socks! I love cables! I have a couple of cabled sock patterns I'm itching to try - and I'd like to make a couple of my own up as well!

Very nice scarf also!

Those cable socks are lovely! I'm so impressed I only just finished my March socks in April, and here you've done two pair in a week.

I like your cable socks. I'm thinking that socks would be a good project to learn cables on, what do you think?
