On the Needles

Well, that monogamous knitting streak lasted about two weeks.  I was on travel for work, and knocked out a pair of socks while I was gone: I used Laura Linneman's Snakes on a Plane pattern, but knitted cuff down instead of toe up, with the Fish Lips Kiss Heel.  Yarn is Dragonfly Fibers Djinji Sock in "Mardi Gras Mambo".  Fun.  I've already worn them.

I finally cast on Drachenfels!  I'm using Madelinetosh (my fav!!) And RATS!!!  I can't get the picture to load.  Maybe next week.  ;(

And...I cast on Lucy Neatby's "Fiesta Feet".  The LYS has a KAL and I just couldn't sit this one out.  The pattern is way above my skill level, but I'm trying it anyway.  This sock has an interesting construction method--you knit a strip, join in the round to form the cuff, and pick up stitches to start knitting the sock.  We'll see how it goes..... Poo!  No pic here either.

I also finished the blue baby socks.  I wasn't able to finish before I left, so I finished and mailed them to my daughter, so she could add them to my baby shower present.  AND THEY ARE MIA!!!! That's Missing in Action!!!  I mailed them 10 days ago!!!  If you get blue baby socks in your mailbox, please let me know.

They are really a baby blue color in person. Aha!  They just arrived!! Finally --I thought I was going to have to knit another pair.  Whew!

Check out Judy L's Patchwork Times to see what everyone else is knitting!


  1. great socks love the cable going up the side, I have that pattern but haven't knit them yet
    have a great weekend

  2. Oh my but your socks are fun! Love the pops of color in the heels. So glad the baby socks showed up. Mailing things today is a lesson in trust! One never knows where things will end up.

  3. So glad your baby socks turned up at last! Love the other socks, and I want to do Drachenfels also. What yarn will you be using?

    1. Judy--I'm using Madelinetosh Dandelion and Tosh Sock. Hopefully I can post a pic next week. IDK what is up with that.

  4. All your projects look so good. Love the Mardi Gras Mambo ones. It looks like Spring has arrived at your house. Glad your missing blue ones showed up.
