I've been busy!

Even though I haven't been posting...

I have a couple of works in progress for this KAL - of course socks (is there anything more fun to knit in the world?!). The first is the luxury SOTM offering from The Knitter The pattern is Licorice Twist by Debbie O'Neill, the yarn is Dream in Color Smooshy. It's the first time I've knit with this yarn and I love it! It's sort of a thick fingering weight which means it will make for a WARM sock this winter.

Isn't the cuff beautiful? It was so much fun to knit! I'm a little less than halfway on the second sock right now. Here's pair #2:

I always knit a pair of Red Sox "good Juju" socks for my younger son in the fall. This year's rendition is a pair of plain vanilla socks (my own design) using Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock stripe - Loopy Colorway. I frogged this pair three times but finally decided the yarn called for a really simple pattern.

So far, it's working - Go Sox!
