Socks!

I decided to get my yarn and knitting projects organized. My yarn stash was worse than my stitching stash. I had some yarn here and some yarn there. So I got it all together and inventoried on Ravelry. What a great site. I wish there was something like that for cross stitching. So anyway I decided to finish up a pair of socks that I've been working on since 2005! I finally did it tonight!

Trekking XXL socks finally finished!!

Trekking XXL Socks
Sally Melville's "Simple Socks" (with a few of my own changes)
Yarn: Trekking XXL Color #100
Started: 10/2/05 - Finished: 7/15/08

I also finished a scarf today, but it needs to be blocked, so I'll have a picture of that later! I did stitch a little on "Joyful Summer" last night and today...

Joyful Summer as of 7/15/08

I got the thread I was needing at my somewhat LNS yesterday. I also got some threads for the new designs coming out. :) Not that I'm excited or anything! :) Well, not much else going on here! Write later!

  1. First of all, I haven't stopped by your blog in a while (just reading via Google reader), and I love the changes you've made...especially the header. Looks great.

    Second, you've been working with some great colors lately. They're so cheerful. I love the socks and I love hte colors in Joyful Summer. They both look like so much fun! Perfect for this time of year!

  2. Beautiful socks--I'm so jealous that you can do that. What a great job! Are they hard to do? Need special stitches? I can do basic knitting, but that's pretty much all. Joyful Summer looks like it's name, joyful--and you aren't the only one excited about the new designs. Aren't they super?

  3. Cool socks! I love how the color variations came through.

    My daughter loves Ravelry. I agree - we cross stitchers need something like that.
