I can't decide which one of my new Duet Sock Yarns to cast on first. To many Wonderful Choices. I will keep you posted.

I have been knitting. I have been uh....can we say obsessed with socks a lot lately, seems like that is all I knit now a days. No finished pairs yet just one lonely Vesper sock Knit in "Muddy Waters" colorway (and a couple wips but more about those later). I used this pattern. With a couple modifications but nothing drastic. Just short row heels and a regular decreased toe. I didn't want to knit another 2x2 rib, 3x1 rib or just plain stocking knit st sock....even thought I love plain ol' socks.

I should be receiving my Socks that Rock Sock Club sock yarn any day now. I will post those pictures when it arrives.
Happy Knitting to all!

A Perfect Pair....Almost

Hi all just some (a lot) of pictures of my finished Vesper Socks in Wild Berry. They are almost perfect. Only one row off at the top but the stripes match up pretty well. Let me know what you think. Now time to cast on for some baby size socks for Cierra....matching Mom and Daughter socks how cheesy am I? Ha ha. When those are done I will be sure to post plenty of pictures.

My 6 year Wedding Anniversary is coming up soon and I was lucky enough to score 3....count them 3 hanks of Vesper sock yarn...Strange Little Mama, Astro, & Muddy Waters. How lucky am I? I should receive them in a few days will keep you all updated on those when they come in.

Hope that everybody had a lovely Easter and Happy Knitting.

Who need Easter Candy?

Not husband got me some Vesper sock yarn for Easter. I love love love this yarn and I love love love my husband. It is the first time I've used Vesper and the colors are so vibrant and bright. The colorway that I managed to get my hands on was "Wild Berry". A combo of Pink, Red and Purple self stripping yarn. With one sock done and the other waiting to be cast on I can't wait to show these babies off. :) Here are a few pictures of the yarn and the 1st sock done.
