Did I Mention I Was Diving This Summer?

Busy, but Knitting, Part II:

These are the Spring Forwards, from Knitty. Made with STR In the Navy which I picked up a few years ago at Black Sheep Gathering. They are medium weight and thick and warm! I love the color and the pattern was fun.

These beauties are the March STR Rockin' Sock Club pattern. Secret Garden by Janel Laidman, in Wild Irishgirlie. I loved the roses and the gusset increases on this sock. Felt better doing these roses after the Yarn Harlot pattern Rogue Roses. Similar rosebuds in that one.

Ada Lovelace, the May 2010 RSC pattern. This is a steampunk-inspired knit in a very delicate "Sweet Pea" Colorway. Pretty! I am almost done with sock #1.

Stash Enhancement!

The July 2010 RSC kit arrived in Hawaii on August 3rd, pretty similar timing to the California Folks. Very pretty colors of Firecracker! I Don't know which pattern to do, yet. I have grand plans to knit every pattern they send me, just in non-club colorways for the patterns #2. Have yet to accomplish that...

Also an extra: Sock Candy in Granny Apple, and flip-flop (we call them Slippahs here) pattern, which may end up being useful for my lifestyle and disastrous to my slippah-tan.

I'm glad someone still has sock knitting mojo! Pretty socks. I have a skein of medium weight str in my stash languishing...

OK... I want a pair of these. Would be such a nice way to be able to wear my "slippah's" year round in Virginia!
