Progress on my sisters sock

I just put in a short rowed heel on the sock for my sister. That is the no-wrap heel from the Easy Sock pattern from Oz yarns' archived web site. Very easy to do; there is the tiny hole in the corner where I have the color change so I will do a sewed stitch to close that. It is not big, just want it to last, sister lives in the Umbria region of Italy on a hill and it can get cold.

The Sorting Hat must be Confused

I have taken the tests about 6 times; most of the time it says Gryffindor, 2 times it said Hufflepuff and one time it said Ravenclaw. Now, I don't mind being thought intelligient, as a Ravenclaw, Modest, Humble and Hardworking as a Hufflepuff, or brave and chivalrous as a Gryffindor, and daring to boot, but this is what the conundrum that Harry Potter must have felt. I guess I would be the chamelean and blend in with those around me whereever I went.

toe up socks for my sister

These are Lornas Lace socks made in sock yarn, the colorway is flame. I have to rip out the one with the heel and lengthen the foot.

Knitting at the Olive Garden again

The weather was hot, the food was good and the knitting was fun. What can I say besides that? Lornas' Laces sock yarn in Flame colorway, toe up socks, on a circular.

My Bleu

OK, he is grey but when he was a baby he looked like blue mist, so I think it is a great name. He likes attention in the middle of the night when I am trying to sleep.
Just thought I would show him off.

Wildefoote Deco Green yarn for heels

I think this is the perfect color to contrast with the Trekking sock for my sister, and the Opal socks for me. I might even do the toes too but haven't made up my mind yet. I just love this color and it wasn't easy to find.

Colleens' sock in progress

Colleen got her kit a month after me and she is down past the heel and on the foot, whereas I have not even done my heel yet. However part of that is waiting to see if I can get some bright green yarn to go with the sock. Hers will look so much better than mine and look at that patterning! I love my camera.

Fun Knitting Day

I met with a friend at PANERA BREAD CO. which has not just great bread, but some awesome broccoli chedder soup. That makes for a great place to camp out for a couple of hours (the length of time it took my mango freezee drink to stop giving me headaches everytime I took a sip) and we got some knitting done. I was working on socks for my sister and a sock kit that my friend Colleen is also working on. Her kit came a month after mine and she is way ahead of me. I did cast on extra stitches and stuff, but still it looks awesome in person. We got a lady at an adjoining table to take this picture.
