I finished the one sock of my Goth Socks in the color Fire Bad and Tree Pretty and started on the second one. I had a hard time with the first sock. I was at the toe when I realized I was short a stitch. I had to rip back close to the heel and had to reknit it. Fortunately, it went fast and I finished it yesterday. I started on the second sock. I love how this knits up.
I have been watching the Single Handed Knits video cast and she is having a Sock the Vote KAL. I was able to order a kit with yarn and got in the undecided party. I cast on today for the first sock. The yarn is Yarn vs Zombies in the Damsel base. The color is Spiffy Iffy. I am using a size one needle with the Dancing Bamboo Sock pattern.
I was able to cast on today and knit the first three rows.
I also got some yarn this past week. I love Hazel Knits Artisan Sock yarn and couldn’t resist buying the Iris color way.
I have been good since the Sanguine Gryphon split up and haven’t bought any of their yarn. I have so much of it. But, I had to buy Grey Hairstreak in the Bugga base from the Verdant Gryphon.
Signature needles came out with the size 1 circular needles. So I bought a pair. After I finish the Goth Socks, I will cast on another sock using these needles. I can’t wait.
Then, I decided to pick up another knitting bag. This one is from Piddleloop. It is the large wedge bag in the cupcake pattern.
Well, I better get knitting. I need to finish off Ruby, my Fair Isle hat, Color Affection shawl and start on a knitted dinosaur for my nephew’s birthday in early November, plus another sock to try out my Signature needles.
