My Current Color PaletteĀ 

Hey Everyone!

While I have subliminally known the colors I gravitate towards for a while, my knitting Instagram feed just confirmed it. 


I am definitely not a bright colors person. I prefer blues, and the darker natural colors. That is pretty much all I am working with at the moment. 

Once I finish the pair of socks that I am working on, I really want to work with the Pink I have sitting (it is also Palette Yarn, in color: “Victorian”), and create some diversity in my Instagram feed. I also need some diversity in my wash bucket, so I don’t get pairs mixed up, when I hang them out to dry. 

In order to add a little bit of color to my Instagram feed, I took this picture:


This is most of my wool sock yarn stash, not all of it, but most. I still have about three pairs of forest green socks to make, as well as two pairs of the Victorian socks once I finish up the Larch Heather socks, before I am going to dive into the bucket of sock yarn.

The Knitter’s Notes Instagram

Hey Everyone!

I had been toying with the idea for a while of making a dedicated “The Knitter’s Notes” Instagram page. For a little while I was posting my knitting stuff on my “Simple Homemaking” page, and I may still post some things there as well as to the knitter’s notes page. Now I have an instagram dedicated to my Knitting pictures. I also wanted to get it, to make sure no one else claimed “The Knitter’s Notes” on Instagram. This way, my blog, Instagram, and Facebook Page all have the same title. It is definitely easier to have them all the same thing than have to explain why one is different because I didn’t claim it first. 

Today, I have been working on my Hazelnut colored socks, while watching the Animal Adventure Park giraffe live feed, as April is supposed to be having her calf in the very near future. I have been watching the live feed on and off since mid February. Waiting on a giraffe to give birth is like watching the paint dry. 

Now that I am back to working with Palette Yarn, I didn’t know how much I liked it, until after working with a yarn so difficult that the tension I was having to put in my little needles snapped one of them in two. 

Of the wool sock yarn I have, I have two skeins that are not the KnitPicks Palette Yarn, which I hope will Knit up ok. Though the vast majority of my wool sock yarn I currently have is the KnitPicks Palette Yarn, in various colors. I will definitely be posting pictures and blog posts about them. 

I am really loving the Hazelnut color of Palette yarn. It’s definitely a brown, but it has more of an orangey red tone to it. It is really pretty. It also goes really well with the color “Victorian” which I would say is a bright dusty rose color. 

With as much of the Victorian I have in my stash as well as the Hazelnut I will have left over, I will hopefully be able to get two pairs of Victorian socks and a pair of Victorian & Hazelnut socks. 

The Palette yarn works up pretty fast and I really haven’t had any issues with it, which is good, beings that I am just getting started on the roughly 4 dozen pairs of socks I will be making with it.
