I’ve been knitting. It may not even be Hallowe’en yet but I know that Christmas will sneak up and surprise me again. Like it does every year! Anyway, the first in law sock is complete:
What you have here is your basic Tesserae sock by Anne Hanson. Lovely patter! I did the Eye of the Partridge heel. So pretty. The yarn is my uber-favourite sock yarn – Indigo Moon. This stuff is so swoon worthy. The colour is called Logwood Brown.
I recently also finished this little sockie:
That’s a TIdepool sock in Shelridge Farms soft touch finger. Very squishy and lovely. I used the EZ afterthought heel for the first time and I really like it. Very comfy and it feels kind of neat on your foot. Can’t really describe it any better than that. It is a shallow heel, but it doesn’t feel shallow in a bad way. Did that make any sense? Nevermind!
Both of these socks are quite a bit darker than they are appearing in these photos though.
Then, in the mailbox today was this:
I won yarn! How cool is that? Pesky Apostrophe who is now Orange Jumper had a little contest over on her blog and I was a lucky ducky winner. Another reader of her blog donated her most gorgeous handspun as a prize. I can’t find a blog for her but if she’s reading this and has a blog please send me a note and I’ll link you up! This is Haldespun handspun Blue Faced Leicester in the colourway ginger. It’s a bit orange and yellow and brown. It’s autumn, all spun up. I want to knit fingerless mitts out of this. Immediately!
Okay, I’m going to go cook some tortellini now and later…find a yummy pattern for mitts for that gorgeous new yarn.
