~ September - October - November ~
three months into Liesl's monthly sock challenge and I'm still in!
here's my November pair:
and there was enough yarn left to make some fingerless mitts :
what a fun set, don't you think?
I've already cast on my December pair :
Liesl is also doing giveaways during her sock challenge ~ I was unaware so I was incredibly surprised and so excited to get an email from her a few weeks ago that I had won her very first drawing...for a $25 Etsy gift certificate! I thought long and hard and finally decided on the above hand dyed self-striping yarn...a perfect holiday colorway!...from Laurel at Spinningfates. I've been anxious to cast on so when it finally arrived yesterday I unwrapped my brand new Karbonz needles and got started.
I love the needles (thanks for everyone's input ~ I ended up with these mostly because they were the only metal needles the LYS I stopped at stocks) ~ I love the yarn (what's not to love, don't you think!?) ~ and have I told you lately how much I love knitting socks...hehe!
Better get ~ have a baby blanket that needs blocking and wrapping before Sunday night. Goddaughter number two will be here soon and baby gifts for her as well as birthday gifts for her big sister Neoma Jane are being delivered on Monday. Have a great weekend, everyone!
