Projects Lately

I have been on a sock kick these days.  I love knitting socks and I can't stop!  In between socks, I have done a couple of hats.  Want to see my latest projects?

I wish this picture turned out better.  The yarn is a really beautiful shade of deep yellow, almost like a cross between a mustard and a pea green.  Sounds totally gross but it truly is beautiful.  The yarn is Madelinetosh Tosh DK in Oak.

Look!  Socks!  Yarn credit:  Berroco Vintage in Promenade.

I have made this hat before and was asked to make a few for friends.  Yarn credit:  Berroco Vintage in Aster.

I love how these socks don't match, even though they use the same yarn.  Yarn credit: Schoppel Wolle Ambiente in color 2183.  This yarn was great to work with.  It had a bit of stretch to it, plus I love when yarn self stripes.

This was my first pair of patterned socks.  You can see the rib pattern all the way through it.  Yarn credit:  Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks that Rock Lightweight in Farmhouse.

Here they are finished.

Isn't this yarn fun?!?!?  I posted this picture on Instagram to show that I love turning and knitting the heel.  It's always my favorite part of the sock.  Yarn is Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks that Rock Lightweight in Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test.  Yes, that really is the name of the yarn.


Here is another patterned sock.  I am not sure I will finish these or not.  This pattern is awful and is taking FOREVER.  I get burnt out when I don't see results quickly.  It's a faux argyle pattern that repeats throughout the entire sock.

Yarn credit:  Crystal Palace Panda Silk in Aquarium.  The color is a really beautiful aqua and the yarn itself is super soft, made out of silk, bamboo and another fiber.

Here is that hat again!  This one is going to my friend Amanda.  Yarn is Berroco Vintage in Petunia.

I hate this sock. I should probably make the other one but the yarn is icky.  It just teaches me never to buy junky yarn again.  Someone did say that this looks like a Bomb Pop.  Maybe I will call them my Bomp Pop socks.  

I have so many other projects in stages of completion right now.  I have 1.5 baby socks knitted.  A blanket, a cowl, and several more.  My goal is to not buy any yarn until September because I need to use up what I have in my stash.


  1. You're amazingly talented. That is all.

  2. So awesome! I crochet myself so I marvel at your ability to use two needles:) Where do you get your yarn? I'm bored with JOann and Michaels

    1. Hi there! I usually buy my yarn at a local yarn shop or I order online at Yarn.com. They have a huge selection and ship really fast.
