12m/12p/12boy -November 2010 In Progress - Brenda (Owlsrook)

Here are my Menehune socks in progress - This is Adrienne's pattern by the way. I am making these in Crystal Palace Panda Wool in the colourway ""Periwinkle", it is the most lovely soft purply shade, that my camera wants to ruin by making it look blue in some photos. Look on the Crystal Palace yarn site to see the true shade (then order some, its wonderful).

12/12/12 Carefree KAL - WIP 11/10

This is my project for the month of November. We moved this month and I am a little buried and even tho' I should be unpacking, I will finish these by the end of the month. Power of positive thinking! Just finished the decrease on on the gusset on both socks so I'm doing ok. I am using the Margarita Summer pattern by Denise Henderly from 50 Socks - 50 States and Shibui yarn with size 2 square needles.

12m/12p/12boy KAL

of course, susan and the rest of us would love for the winner to knit something with the sausalito as quickly as possible because we want to see how it knits up! =D
