Sockapalooooza!!!!


They're here! They're here! And look at my presents. My sock pal went above and beyond and gifted me with these lovely socks (in my favorite color no less) and yarn and a really neat card of women soldiers knitting. It looks like Italy WWII. Very wonderful. Thank you so much, Pam!!! I am in awe of your generosity. I hope your sock pal gifted you as well as you gifted me. :0)


























I have also been doing a little on Luskentyre...but look who also came out to play. I seem to be in exactly the same spot on both. Oh, God, it's the arms. I must push onward, for I have some new projects brewing and I refuse to start until I have at least one of these done, if not both. Still looking at Norsk Strikkedesign and also another Starmore or two...but a little different than a Fair Isle. Piqued anyone's interest?

Oooh, welcome back Rheingold! I love her colours.

A Starmore that's not a Fair Isle? Little Rivers? Sorry, couldn't stop myself ;-)

The socks look fabulous! Lucky you.

You're cut off from new projects until you finish Reingold and Luskentyre (This is your concencious speaking)
I'm sure I didn't spell that right!

hi! thanks for your comment! Zara is one of my favorites because it's not itchy and has a nice stretch to it.

those fair isle pieces are gorgeous! Arms are the worst, but keep going--they look great!

I really wish I had the patience to do something like that--I always end up tangling my yarns and getting frustrated

I had to laugh when I read your comment on my site about Season of Darkness and Winter Light - I've been lusting after the thing for so long but now I'm a little nervous to start it, because I really want it to look as good as I'm picturing it. I'm excited someone else wants to make it - if you are going to start it soon, I will too and then we can have our own little knit-along. Although, judging from the work you have done here, you'll probably finish long before I do! :) What kind of yarn did you order?

Your fair isle work is beautiful, I'm very impressed!
