Socks

Well, this is a bit awkward, as I have apparently fallen off the face of the earth for nearly two months.

However, I have now figured out how to use the camera we have, and I have my own memory card now, so I can make with more pictures! As I'm becoming more balanced between job and home, I think I'll have more time to blog again.

I am still, unfortunately, learning the camera settings. But I'll try to make these better next time.

I've been working on some standard socks with the new Kaffe Fassett sock yarn.

I love the colors, love the yarn. Happy. These are my basic top-down pattern with a longer heel flap and 3x1 ribbing. They may not be exciting to knit, but they're great to wear and I know I'll go back to them over and over again.

I also had to get some of the new Socks that Rock Raven series... the little bitty goth part of me decided that I couldn't go on without some nice black yarn.

Socks that Rock Korppi

This is the Korppi colorway, which doesn't, of course, photograph well, but it is eggplant and pine green under the black. Yum.

In other news we're looking forward to moving to a bigger, nicer place soon. I'm also looking forward to the holidays. We have 16 people joining us for Thanksgiving and this will be the first year in many that my entire family will come together happily for Christmas.

Also we rigged up an old keyboard to run the Dvorak layout... we'll see if I can learn it this time!

Glad to see you back. Exciting about a new place!
I've also been in a non-blogging mode. Things have been hectic around here!
Hope you have a nice Thanksgiving holiday! I'll be putting the turkey in at 7am, however, there will be no visitors to my home. The turkey is just for my husband! :) We'll be eating at his aunt's, but he still requests a turkey and homemade stuffing. YUM!

Hey V,

I still try and check in from time to time. Just wanted to say I'm glad to hear everyone's coming together for Christmas :). That's awesome for you and then :D.

take care
