<< SPOILER warning!! If you are a Notorious Sock Knitter from the Socks That Rock Sock Club - you may want to avoid this post until you received your September shipment! >>
Wow! I didn't realize that I haven't updated my blog for over 2 weeks. The good news is that I haven't memorized my new credit card number, thus, I haven't purchased any new yarn in the last 2 weeks. I have received my last order (before I lost my card) from Blue Moon Fiber Arts. Here they are:
From left to right: Mochaberry, Space Dusk, Spniel, Jade, and Lettuce Knit - all are Socks That Rock Lightweight.
Two days later, I received the September Sock Club shipment. I cast on and found that I suck at doing cables without a cable needle. And you have to do this for every 2 stitches in the row (64 stitches total) and you have to repeat this every 4 rows! I think I'll be looking for a different pattern for this gorgeous yarn.
Anyway, in the last 2 weeks, I've diligently been working on my socks. This is the progress of the socks I'm knitting for the September Sockdown. This should yield 4 socks - if I finish them all. Coincidentally, this is the first time I'm knitting 2 socks with complicated charts (Mystery Sock and Marilinda) but are they pretty!!
Here are some closeups:
It's hard to take photos of completed socks on my feet. I'm too short. I need another person around to be the photographer or model!
Last but not least, I was honored with the Arte y Pico award by Senja of Imagine Knit. I don't know who reads my blogs - I know Senja does, because she's right on when she described me as the queen of many socks and has a serious sock yarn obsession... How true! Thank you Senja!
