And Then There Were Two....


Red's twin is finished! This sock went much faster then the first, but looks just as pretty in my opinion (I'm biased of course). These are for send off between August 2 -7th. Now just to finish adding a few little things to the box...

The Info:
  • The Pattern: Uptown Boot Socks By, Jennifer L. Appleby ('Favorite Socks' by, Interweave Press')
  • The Yarn: Lorna's Lace in Red Rover (gorgeous color way, love this yarn).
  • No Mods, just adjustment for foot size.
This pattern requires a bit of note taking and check marks. The pattern is subtle, but well worth the finished product. Now just to wash, block and send off.

My Loopy Ewe Package just arrived and I had to put red on the blockers to test them out. What to you think?? No I didn't buy and yarn although I really had to force myself to stop from clicking 'add to cart'. Check this store out for your sock needs, Sheri has a great yarn selection as well as lots of other goodies to see.

Lovely socks!!!
I used the yarn that my No Sheep pal sent me. It's funny, one hat had a ton of pooling and the other didn't.

Ooh very pretty! Your pal will be thrilled, no doubt :D I'll be making a Loopy Ewe jump just as soon as I am done paying 400 bucks for my car repairs in a few weeks :( I will be knitting from stash for a while yet heh.

I love, love, LOVE them!! I do hope that's one of the books I ordered from KnitPicks... Keep your fingers crossed that I can stay awake AND keep Mugsy out of my lap long enough to check it all out.

Congrats on finishing your socks! This is quite a lovely shade of reds. Cool sock blockers!

Alex said...

You must have some self-control, to be able to stop yourself from buying yarn from Sheri!

The socks look lovely--I'm sure whoever gets them will be quite happy.
