Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells

Yes, I know, it's still too early for Christmas. But, I found some cool sock yarn that is great for Christmas so I just have to sing when I talk about it. I got the sock yarn from Zen String. The top picture is Bambewe in a peppermint colorway. It's suppose to stripe like a candy cane. The bottom picture is Lotus Toes in the jingle colorway (now you understand why I was singing).

I also got a sport weight yarn called Verde in the Jingle colorway.

So, I'm getting in the Christmas spirit and already started on one sock using the Lotus Toes with a size 1 needle and a basic sock pattern. I have already finished one sock.

While I am still working on several projects, I did get the November dishcloth KAL finished. It's called Tree. I used Peaches and Creme in Hunter with a size 7 needle.

Now can you see why I am singing Jingle Bells? Between the sock and the dishcloth I am getting in the Christmas spirit.

But, Halloween isn't that far gone, so I was lucky to get a skein of Goth Socks in the colorway Fright Night from Rainy Days and Wooly Dogs. It's 100% superwash yarn and should stripe really nicely. This is tough yarn to get. You have to be real quick.

I also got some yarn club shipments. From the Unique Sheep's Rubber Ducky Club, I got Pima Petite in Pumpkin Patch. It also came with a cool sheep soap and a pumpkin pie stitch marker.

From the Loopy Ewe, I got my last sock club shipment for the year. The yarn is Numma Numma in The Usual. The colorway is Red Bartlett Pear. It's 100% superwash yarn. I also got a yarn bobbin and kitchener tag from Karatstix as well as a sock pattern. I love her things and have also purchased some of it. She will make it to order, but you may have to wait awhile. It's worth it though.

Well, off to knit the second Jingle sock. "Jingle all the wayyyyyyy"......
