That's another sock. Yup. I finished the last pair and started another. I couldn't help myself. I love sock yarn. Plus, I've been watching the first season of Lucifer, and you know what they say about idle hands... ;-)
In the mail today were the stitch markers and rainbow sheep decal from SnarkyLlama Creations. Yay!
The stitch markers are the She Was Warned set. A dollar from each set sold is being donated to the ACLU.
A dollar from each Rainbow Sheep decal is being donated to The Trevor Project.
I've been using stitch markers from SnarkyLlama for years. Great stitch markers! They don't snag yarn. Easy to knit around. Recently they have changed the make of the charm part, making it even more durable. I highly recommend!
I finished these socks Thursday night while watching a lot of episodes of Flashpoint. I am very happy with the way they turned out!
The yarn is from SeeJayneKnitYarns and is in the colorway Stained Glass. The sock pattern is my favorite, and the one I use all the time, How I Make My Socks by Susan B. Anderson.

Since I didn't post anything last year, I had forgotten that this Monster didn't get any attention here on the blog. This is Vinny V from the Knit A Monster Nursery collection by Rebecca Danger. I knit it with red and blue Caron Simply Soft and some left over white and yellow bits of yarn.
I made this guy last year for Henry when we found out he was going to have to have his tonsils removed. I gave it to him just before surgery so he could have a friend with him.
Thankfully, the surgery went well and Henry's doctors and nurses were amazing.
Yes. It's procrasti-knitting. I finished one sock and started the other. I really, really planned to start knitting that cardigan. It is, after all, my summer knitting project. But then...but then the siren call of the sock yarn found me. Now I have to finish that second sock. Can't have just one!
See! I told you the sock was further along than that other pic. And you didn't believe me. Cheeky.
This is fingering weight (sock yarn) from See Jayne Knit. I LOVE sock yarn from there. Very easy to knit and soft, too. It does ship from Canada, so if you live in the U.S. the price is a little higher. This makes it my special occasion yarn. My indulgence yarn (although, this was a b-day gift ;-) This one was $24.95 and I think around $30-$32 with shipping. Shipping is usually pretty fast. About a week or so to get from British Columbia to Michigan.
Check out all the yarn, as well as stitch markers and vintage jewelry, at SeeJayneKnitYarns.
Hello! Welcome to my knitting (and other odds and ends) blog. I grew up watching my Grandma knit. It seemed like she was always with needles and yarn. It must have made an impression on me because now I knit as much as I can.
Stay a while. Check out the knitting and watch out for stray bits of yarn.
