Pink and Blue Koigu Socks


Pink and Blue Koigu Socks
Originally uploaded by jmnkrt.

These socks turned out really cute. They were made with Koigu in 2 different colorways and I used the Socks of Doom pattern and size 3 needles. They knit up pretty quickly...but I am doubtful if I will make any more socks with the different colored toes, heels and cuff because I had to weave in sooooo many ends!

Knitting in the Quiet

January Socks

Normally when I knit, I like to catch up on TV shows I have recorded into the DVR or listen to podcasts on my iPod. Last Saturday night, John was watching football (with no sound) and my iPod was charging upstairs. I didn't feel like draggin my stuff upstairs...so I sat on the couch (my preferred knitting spot) and finished this pair of socks. The sock was knit so quickly (I was on the foot portion of the 2nd sock) and everything was so peaceful...plus I had some good reflection time....it was a very relaxing evening...something I have needed for a while....

Stash...

Over the past week I have acquired new sock stash! Fleece Artist is a
green colorway (the label says Rainforest, but I don't think it
is....but it's pretty anyway), Mountain Colors Bearfoot in Mountain
Tango, Socks that Rock in Terra Firma and Puck's Mischief. They are all
gorgeous and I haven't taken pictures yet. I have a new account with
Flickr and I will get pics there and link them later.....or put a
permanet link to my Flickr albums on the side and then reference any
future pictures there....rather than putting every single picture on my
blog...
