Can't Stop Knitting Socks

After the mess that was SockWarsIII I swore off socks for a while. But not too long, I need to finish these for a birthday present by Saturday.

Love the yarn, its by Regia Cotton Color and it's super easy to knit with.

I also finished the Central Park (non) Hoodie and was able to get a reasonable photo in between rain storms. I did it with a collar instead of a hood deciding that hoods don't really work for me. Loved the yarn which came from Webs, Northampton in a warm brown heather color.

Back to the socks, oh yes...I did get a delivery from KnitPicks today, a whole shitload of sock yarn...

Hi Jan, the pattern is Lacertilia from Dipsy Doodle and if you search on Ravelry you will find it. I've had it kicking around for a while...ciao

I love the collar on your CPH! I didn't doubt for a moment that you'd come up with a workable solution. It's beautiful. I love the socks too.

I do have a pair of socks on the needles but not much time to devote to them. I'm hoping to be out of afghan hell soon. I see my supply of yarn dwindling in the bag so it's soon. Then I get to do the fringe and block the beast.....

I too have a shawl on needles, since a year actually but since it's for me I don't rush it. I'm going to be looking for a spinning wheel as well. I have an antique one but it requires too much repair to make it worthwhile, sad actually...ciao

Check Craig's List for a spinning wheel.

Good for you. Keep the economy going! I did SockWars 1 and thought it too brutal to participate in again. I was sorry to hear about the outcome this time.
