These are Vesper sock yarn in "Serendipitous" and "Great Googlie Mooglie" I will be knitting me and the boys matching socks out of the "Great Googlie Mooglie". I had to get this yarn for 2 reasons. One, the boys loved it when they saw it and Two, I loved the name. I use this phrase ALOT with the boys, so I thought it was very appropriate. :)
And my Yarn Pirate Booty club September's colorway in "Butternut" arrived today to. Now I just need to figure out what pattern to knit with it. Any ideas?
In the knitting front not much happening. I have been jumping from project to project but there has been no real progress. Maybe next week I will have pictures of a finished "Firestarter" sock. We'll see...but for now happy knitting to all.

As for my Tomato sweater it's coming along. I am knitting the body of the sweater now. I haven't really picked it up since I started the "Firestarters" though.

Here is my inspiration for these, I cast on 64sts and Ktbl, Purl cuff for 1". Hopefully they turn out to be some cool socks. Even though I live in Germany I don't read or speak German...good thing the pattern has a chart :) I am loving the way that they are turning out so far. I am using Regia Sock yarn in a Mauve and Teal color and size 3mm Dpns.
Here is a couple days worth of work on the Chevron Scarf....it's coming along but there is a long way to go.
and last but not least Zen String Bambewe fingering weight yarn in "Summer Rolls" this picture is a little dark I will take another one when there is more light outside. This yarn is so squishy and soft I can't wait to cast on for the perfect project...Now to go hunting for it. That's all I have to share with you all...Enjoy Your Labor day and Happy Knitting!
