IN SOCK MODE

Hailey arrived last night from Whistler to celebrate with the family, so today I'll give her her scarf, which she hasn't seen yet... I have enough yarn left over to either put a fringe on it, or knit a hat or mittens to match, so she'll get to choose.


A few weeks ago (and more than once in the past several months), I've been in shawl mode -- well, now I'm in sock mode. I have several pairs of socks I want to get done before Christmas, so it's a good thing I've already started! I have socks for a certain young man I know and love ...

And these ones are for a slightly older young man I know and love... :-)

These are the Thuja socks from Knitty, designed by a dude named Bobby Ziegler, and knit in Paton's Kroy, and I'm loving knitting them.

I also picked up some choice wools at Knotty by Nature yesterday to make some store samples, which will also double as class models for classes I'll be teaching there after Christmas! I'm hoping to make some Noro socks, a red 'Christmas-y' scarf from some superwash Merino(for which I've not yet chosen a pattern) and a moebius wrap in some gorgeous blue tones, Diamond lace weight. I'll keep you posted!

Thank you for letting me know where the eagles are, we were very curious!

Love all the knitting, esp the camo socks (my son won't keep them on his feet any longer than absolutely necessary, so boys socks don't get made around here).

BTW, just read your post from yesterday. You honour us all by sharing your personal story. Thank you.
