In knitting news

This wont be a very long post I've got a lot to do today. Grocery shopping laundry you know the normal end of the week stuff. But I had said that I was going to update the blog with progress pictures so here goes. First up One down one to go on the "Firestarter" Love this pattern but I am not totally thrilled about the flash of color at the ankle. I guess it really doesn't matter because these are for a friend and she loves them so far.

Next up we have a plain stockinette stitch sock for one of my boys. This is Vesper sock yarn in "Great Googlie Mooglie" I am loving this color combo and my son keeps bugging me to finish these. Guess I'd better get knitting!!

And last but certainly not least Socktober Fest challenge. My very first kool-aid dyed sock yarn and my very own pattern. I think that I will call these socks "Cierra Mist with a Twist" what do you think? It's kind of a play on words. The colors do remind me of Sierra Mist soda and my daughters name is Cierra and the twist well they are twisty :) I am loving the way that these are turning out. It took me a while to figure out what pattern I wanted to do and a lot of frogging but I am loving these. Can you tell I am kind of proud of myself. Maybe if enough people like them I will offer the pattern on my blog we'll see.

That's all I have time for now I will check in again soon. Have a great weekend everybody and Happy Knitting!!!

ALL of the socks are amazing! I love how your Firestarter came out - I seem to get the same pooling at the akles on most of my socks too - pass it on if you ever figure out the solution:) And the Ooglie Mooglies - great - I love the name! And your Cierra Mists are so pretty - great name and kool-aid combo, and the pattern is so pretty! Great job!

Great socks! My favorites are the Ooglie Mooglies. They are so cool. I love the solid striping in them as well. You have a very lucky son. :)
