Finished Zombie Socks

Well I did get my sister's Zombie socks done before her birthday which is on Sunday, so I won't have to give her one sock and have to make her wait for the second.

Number One of the Socks.

This is a rotated view of the sock. I need to find my remote for the camera so I can take a picture without having to rotate it.

Enjoy it.

Finished Orange Socks

Here are pictures of the finished Orange Socks I was making. These are made with my hand-painted sock yarn that I dye using drink mixes.

This is my Slytherin Pride sock, photo taken this afternoon. I've found that listening to audio books helps me to get on with it! There's just one more snake to knit before I do the heel, and I will post another pic when that's done.

I'm Done

I finished my adult socks a couple of days before Christmas, but have been really bad about posting anything lately. I adopted a dog in early December and I've been focusing on getting her on some sort of schedule as well as finishing up with school for the semester. It was crazy for awhile, but working on the socks certainly helped to keep me sane. I'll be handing them over to my friend tomorrow, but I suspect it will be awhile before I can make her son's matching socks. I have a toddler coat that is entirely made of seed stitch that I'm desperately trying to finish while I'm off from work this week. I may post a picture of that if I'm successful because I've been working on that thing


It has been a while since I have posted on the progress of my socks.

First, I would like to blame LavA for sending me a box full of books. Besides random sparkly items tossed about the room nothing distracts me more than a book I have not read. So, I have not knitted on my socks since12/23/08 at 2:30pm until late Sunday afternoon maybe 3ish.

Tuesday was picking up the stitches for the two different patterns which proved to be rather difficult for me since I had a mind altering headache and in a clear and audible whine from me, my LYS owner grabbed my knitting from me and picked them up for me. Thanks Kelly.

I completed 8 rows of the patterns, then came home took a power nap and went to my part-time job.
Wednesday no knitting done worked from 4am until 6pm then went out for eats. Came home to find a box waiting for me.
Thursday, no knitting due to reading, Friday, no knitting due to reading, Saturday, no knitting due to reading. And there was plenty of tea drinking done as well. YUM!!!!!!!

Sunday, stopped reading and started knitting at 3:00pm. I am now in the middle of the second repeat of the main pattern and it looks rather splendid. The only part I am not keen on is making 5 stitches from one stitch. I feel all thumbs.

I am off to finish the second repeat and perhaps start the third, a small goal for me this week is to have a heal and/or half a foot in it by Sunday.
