So now.... in addition to my quilting addiction.... I have developed another little problem. About a year and a half ago, I knitted my first pair of socks. It's been downhill ever since. In the last 18 months, I've made 21 pairs of socks, and I have 4 pair currently in some sort of partial completion. I can't stop myself! **sigh** I guess we all have our little problems and this isn't such a terrible problem to have. So here I sit.... on a warm summer day.... blogging in my bare feet....
Here are my last few pair that I haven't shown you yet:
Barking Dog Yarns.... hand dyed by Suzan O'Brien.
And my most recent sock from the book is called, "Rhombus". SHEESH! This one was a challenge! One word- Cables. The yarn is also from Barking Dog Yarns. Suzan calls this colorway "Robin's Hood". Now that they're finished, I LOVE these socks.
These were designed by Wendy Gaal of Knitters Brewing Company. This is one of her wonderful hand dyed colorways called Cosmopolitan. The pattern is called Family Jewels. It looks complicated, but it really wasn't too bad. She does videos on her Ravelry page to help knitters through the tough spots.
Here's the back. Pretty.
Wendy has a great summer Knit Along going right now on her Ravelry group. I'll show you a picture when I finish knitting it. It a commemorative sock for the 2011 Sock Summit event in Portland this summer. Yes. It's a convention for people who knit socks (and other things). Yes. There really are enough people in the world to have a major convention for people who knit socks. Really.
