Also managed to finish the September sock from the knit.sock.love KAL on Ravelry. This is "Ins and Outs" by Cookie A, from her book knit.sock.love. This was the ninth month of the KAL and so far I have loved every sock. I used Springtree Road Julep Sock, color Citron.

Here is "Daphne" - the August pattern of Cookie's Sock Club. A very quick knit in "A Verb for Keeping Warm" Metamorphosis 70% superwash merino/30% silk sport weight yarn. Used 2.25 dp needles and whipped through the pattern in no time. The color is "Sugar Jets".

Have finished the 34 chart rows, should go pretty quickly now. I know there are some errors in the first rows but I couldn't see them until I was way past that point - so there they will stay. It's a learning experience and if there is a second shawl it will be much better.

"Twisted Flower" socks by Cookie A, the August sock in the knit.sock.love KAL. Knit with Hiya Hiya 2.25mm dps and Grant Creek Cushy Merino/Nylon in "Peachy Pink". This sock was quite easy to knit even though it looks very difficult. It went quickly and the only mod I made was to shorten the heel flap a bit for a better fit.

"Orange Pekoe" socks knit with Hazel Knits Artisan sock in a color dyed for (and she helped) Cookie called "Oh My Darling". The pattern is tea leaves. These should generate heat just from the glow of the orange yarn and will brighten up many a cold winter day! Fun to make, another wonderful pattern from a great designer.
I am really so stuck on socks but having lots of fun using up stash. Seems as though I am buying more faster than I am using it but what the heck - cold weather is coming and I need lots of warm socks. This pattern is new and is published in Sock Knitting Master Class, a great collection of socks by different designers. The yarn is Knit Picks Stroll in Golden Glow and I knit them with my trusty 2.25mm Hiya Hiya dps. Quick and easy!

"Best Friends Forever" is finished. This sock was a pleasure to knit, went very fast and was very easy. It was a break from the usually more complicated Cookie A socks and I am now looking forward to the August sock - "Twisted Flower" in the knit.sock.love. KAL on Ravelry. The Younger Yarn "Twisty String" was nice and gives great stitch definition. Now I have to find something to keep my busy until August 1st!
