Updated Socks

So I'm thinking of signing up for "Summer of Socks 2007". In that interest, and since I've begun posting on the Lime and Violet messageboard, I decided I really should move my lazy butt and update the blog.

Went to New Jersey last week to check out Rutgers, and I'm really excited about this fall. More on that later. I've also been hoarding sock yarn like nuts, I admit. :-)

Finished socks:

Pattern: "Simple Socks" from Jitterbug skein band
Yarn: Colinette Jitterbug in colorway "Blue Parrot"
Needle Size: US 2, 2.75mm
Time May 1 to May 12 (2 bouts of frogging...)

Pattern: "Moss Diamonds", from Charlene Schurch's "More Sensational Knitted Socks"
Yarn: Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock, colorway "Green Apple", 2 skeins.
Needle Size: US 2, 2.75mm
Time: April 19 to April 26

Not too thrilled with these, just since the texture really doesn't show because of the multicolor. I do like the striping and pooling of this colorway though!


1.) May Sock of the Month Socks from my LYS, a Mock Cable pattern done in Plymouth "Sockotta", need to look up the colorway. Size 2 needles. Started May 16th.

2.) "Mata Hari" socks in Yarn Pirate colorway "Primrose". Completely frogged and rewound yesterday, so this might be better classified as an "On the Shelf" project.

3.) Socks in an an adapted sweater pattern called "Cape Cod" made in merino/tencel from Etsy seller LoveSticks, colorway "I Can't Kelp Myself". Size 1 needles, cast on May 19th.

Pictures of WIPs soon!
