Another One Bites the Dust

I finished the Flat Feet sock. I like how this one turned out. I was at Kraemers today and they got more of this yarn in. There were some really unique patterns, but I resisted buying any more.

Flat Feet Sock Completed

I just have to finish the second sock in the Paca peds Heel and Toe before the Summer of Sock 2008 starts on June 21st. I should be able to complete it by then. I then have to decide what yarn I will use for my next two socks and if I will do a patterned sock. Decisions, Decisions.

I completed the May Mid-Month KAL in my Yahoo group. It's called Palm Tree. I used size 7 needles with Peaches n Creme in Light Green. Monday starts the Mid-Month cloth. I can't wait.

I was able to finish two more Comfortghan squares. The pattern is Seeded Rib Check by Mary Dixon. I used Red Heart Supersaver yarn in Light Fushsia with size 8 needles.

12 squares are completed so far and I sent them off to the sista who puts the squares together. I have 12 more to do before the end of the year for my goal of 24.
I purchased more yarn. I couldn't resist and the Loopy Ewe is my downfall.

From left to right is Louet Gems fingeringweight in the colorway Crabapple Blossom and J. Knits fingeringweight in the colorway Boston. I also got a Go Knit pouch in orchid.
My STR sock club yarn came. I love the color. It's the Incredible Shrinking Violet in lightweight yarn. Purple is one of my favorite colors.

Plucky Knitter's sock club yarn also arrived. It's called Miss Marianne Dashwood and its 100% BFL superwash yarn. The color is yummy too.

The weather was hot this last week and slowed my knitting. The good thing though is that I have been getting out projects I started awhile ago. Maybe I will finally finish some works in progress off. Keep your fingers crossed for me.

Love your Flat Feet socks. Have got to start mine after I finish up my second sock of another yarn. Today it's a trip to the EStroudsburg yarn shop. :)
