Sea Dragon

Hey Everyone!

It’s been a bit since I have posted her, and even longer it seems since I finished a pair of socks.

Knitting has definitely slowed down since I started this job I am at. It’s OK for the time being since I do need to work.

I finally finished up a pair I had started back in November. This pair was knit up out of yarn from a small yarn dyer, who I found out about from one of you. The yarn shop is called Deep Dyed Yarn. I had ordered several hanks from her shop in two different yarn bases. The yarn base for this particular pair is the Figment yarn base, and I used the colorway “Sea Dragon”. I love how it turned out.

Sock yarn has definitely become one of my things. I love looking at it. All the different color combinations that people come up with is incredible. I love working with it, and feel it as I am working it up.

I have been told that I have enough socks and sock yarn, but really, can you ever have enough?

I know that the city life is not my calling and I am working hard now to get out of here, and live a life where I am outside more, and still living in a place that rains, or at least overcast, grey & misty / drizzling for nine months out of the year, where having good quality wool socks are a must.

Christmas Socks

Hey Everyone!

It had taken me two months to knit up these socks.

These socks were knit up from Knitpicks Palette yarn in Mist.

I finished the second sock up on Christmas evening.

I have started another couple pairs of socks, one is of Palette Yarn in tea rose, and the other I am using Hawthorne Fingering in the dye speckle.

Work was very busy the past couple of months, so I have basically been eating, sleeping and working. I haven’t had the time to knit. Now that things are calming down at work, I will hopefully get some more knitting done.
