Leaf Socks

Finished the leaf lace socks.

Pattern: Leaf Lace socks from Fiber Trends
Needles: US 1 or 2.25 mm
Yarn: Spun from roving I got at the sheep and wool festival.

Other projects: Dax wants some new pajamas and picked this fabric out for it.

I also went ahead and joined the We call them Pirates Knitalong. I want to make socks using the chart they have but I looked in my stash and didn’t have the color I wanted, black. I have some un-dyed sock yarn in the stash but didn’t want to use it to dye it just black. Money is tight right now so I ordered some black Essential yarn from Knit picks. I have no complaints with the other yarn I’ve gotten from them so I will give their sock yarn a try. Now I’m just waiting for the mail to come.

We seem to be getting back into a schedule, finally. I would really like to finish spinning the green stuff. There is some blue stuff in my closet that I would like to spin next. I’ve also been trying to de-lurk myself by leaving comments on the blogs I like to read.

On the house building project, Rudy has been working on the master bathroom’s shower. Being back on schedule does not leave much time at the end of the day to work on the landscaping.

Those socks remind me of Irish Spring soap. Very pretty.

The green yarn you spun is so pretty and it goes perfectly with the pattern you chose. Beautiful job!!! I thought I had better de-lurk and start commenting on the blogs I read too.

I really appreciate the de-lurking. Thanks so much for commenting on my new blog! I love your green leaf socks; they're beautiful.

I haven't tried any knit picks yarn yet, but I've been thinking about it. I've heard good things about their yarn/needles/prices.
