Trick or Treat

Still have a cold (yes, I have decided that this is a cold and not allergies), but I have been feeling good enough to knit.

I completed my Halloween socks using Vesper Sock Yarn in the Trick or Treat colorway. I used size 1 1/2 needles. This is the second pair of socks I have knit using 2 socks on 2 needles and I am really starting to like this method. It seems to take longer, but once you are finished, both pairs are complete. I really like the Vesper Sock Yarn by Knitterly Things. Her colorways are terrific and the striping is certainly wonderful.

I also turned the heel on the Sereknity socks in the Vineyard colorway. I may even be able to finish these socks by the end of the week. I like this yarn and the colorway. I am using size 2 needles.

I may have been sick, but it didn't stop me from buying yarn. Kraemer's got more Indie Dyer in stock and I couldn't resist these colorways. I don't have color numbers or names but the yarn base is Louet and it is wonderful.

I was finally able to snag some sock yarn from Sweet Georgia. This is a superwash sock in the colorway Sunsets and Car Crashes. Can't wait to knit this up.

Then, I couldn't resist Yarn Chef's sock yarn. I got three skeins. From left to right: Trees in Spring (Bouillabaise, which is 100% superwash), On a Cruise (Minestrone, which is 75% superwash, 25% nylon), and Moldy Jack O Lantern (Bouillabaise). I love the colors and the names.

Finally, from the Loopy Ewe, I got 10 skeins of Dream in Color Classy in the Don't be blue colorway, which is exclusive to them. I am going to knit a sweater with this yarn. Can you believe it, I am going to knit a sweater? I am going to use the Twist pattern from Chic Knits. I plan to finish the sweater I started in 2004 first and then I will move on to this pattern. Wish me luck!

Well, off to knit. After all, I have much to do.

lol. My first sweater... and still the only one I've knit for myself... took about 3 years! I have vague plans for another one. I've got yarn... hehe

Little ones are so cute, though, and I have Weasleyish plans of making the kids jumpers every year.
