July 01, 2008

Sometimes I even surprise myself...

I know! I am a little ahead of my self! This is just a peek at the one sock I have done for my July 2008 sock.

It's the heel if you didn't know. And here is a toe shot

I don't want to show the whole thing till they are done. Which I am thinking will be soon at the rate I am going. I am trying to free up my July so I can do some other things.

I love knitting socks, but I want to make some other things like a cowl. Seems they are everywhere.

I have some yarn choices. What do you think of these?

It's not my handspun.
It was the nice price.
Got it a couple years ago at the Hemlock Fiber Festival along with this:

Either of these would make a nice cowl.

Or this one below:

Now this is my handspun and I LOVE the color of this so much! I would love to wear it around my neck!

I may have to make 3 cowls!

Oh and then I got the new issue of Spin Off Magazine and I totally want to make the Morning Surf Scarf (Raveled Here)

I am thinking of using this:

It was supposed to be for socks, but I like this much better. So I think I could get at least a couple of cowls done and a scarf by the end of July don't you?

I am off Thursday and Friday for a nice long holiday weekend!
Happy 4th!

You're spoiling your readers with a flash of sock on the very first day of the month!

Make the cowl with your handspun!

Have a great weekend.

I love the color of the socks. Normally I am not a bright color kind of person...but it seems like I am heading that way. Because I also like the handspun orange! Gorgeous!

I vote the pumpkin yarn for a cowl! It's so freaking pretty, and the color will look awesome on you.

*sigh* you and your mad sock knitting skills...
