Pretty in Pink Socks!
I looove these socks! They were so much fun! Easy and fast! I really like how the stripes turned out too, Thanks Paulette!
Start date: July 10th
End date: July 12th
Yarn: Cascade fixation
Pattern: a combination from here and here
Needles: US 3, circulars
I really like the heel flap too! I actually think I did the turning of the heel part a bit wrong on the first one and noticed how to do it correctly on the second. But to make them the same I purposely did the second one wrong too. Did that make sense to you or am I totally screwie?! Oh well. I'm loving the sock making and want to join in a swap. I'm not sure what one or if any are currently open to sign ups. I had done the secret pal swap two times before and had fun with them, but I think it would be fun knitting something for someone else who will really appreciate it.
Also I found these:
I know they are ugly shoes but they are comfy and I had a normal pair from last year that I now wear to work. Now those ones are dirty and scuffed up(i will still use them for working). I saw these ones, mary jane style, and thought they were a super cute version of them. So It was payday today and I went out and got them!
On a fun knitting note....
I was blog hopping today after catching up on my bloglines and found that there is a fun contest like game, knitting bingo, on Woven-N-spun. Go check it out and play along!
Also Shelly over at kitten knits yarn is having a fun contest for some pretty stitch markers! Go check it out, its at the end of the post ;O)
