Witchy Bitchy

Love that name! It's the name of a colorway from the now, unfortunately, defunct Rainy Days & Wooly Dogs indie dyers. I saw this colorway on a destash page on Ravelry and couldn't resist. After making my son's girlfriend the ruffled scarf I thought this would be a fun scarf for the Witchy Bitchy color I had in my stash.


It's going in the mail next week for my friend's daughter. I think she'll just love it.

If you see any Gothsocks for sale, you should pick up a skein. The colors are really fun and the yarn is just lovely.

Sasha Socks

Just finishing up a pair of socks I'd like to share with you. These are the Sasha Socks which can be found on Ravelry. An easy pattern which knits up quickly. These are done in Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks That Rock and the color is Winterberries. This yarn may be from the yarn club I was in last year but I'm not sure.






As soon as these are done, I'll be casing on my Dillsboros for Rich's KAL on Ravelry. Those socks will be put in my stash for Patrick and they're going to be gorgeous!

Ruffled Scarf

Glenn's girlfriend is going away to college so I decided to make her something pretty. Very easy and a lot of fun. It's the Gillian Ruffle Scarf I waited till the last minute so I've been a knitting fool the last week but I got it done just in time and with about a foot of yarn left over. Waste not want not!




It's done in Madeline Tosh Merino Light in Lepidoptera. A really pretty pink color which is her favorite color.

Next I'm going to pick out one of Rich's patterns and join his KAL on Ravelry. If you're interested, check it out here. I'm really excited about this knit. Rich's patterns are so gorgeous and this pair of socks will go into Patrick's college knit pile for when he goes away next year. I have a gorgeous Blue Moon yarn picked out but I'll show you once I've got a few rows knit up.

Country Birthday!

As previously stated, we went upstate last weekend. Best. Weekend. Ever. I don't have words to describe what a wonderful time we had. Well a few. Family, love, food, music, laughter. Lots of all of the above. These will show you better.










I managed to get a few rows of knitting done but haven't taken photos yet. Hopefully today and I can post tomorrow. Hope you're all enjoying your summer as much as I am!

Country Weekend

This weekend we're going away to the country to see our sister in law. Actually she's my ex-sister in law. We decided that even though she and my brother in law divorced, we didn't divorce her! She and her husband have a lovely home on a lake in upstate New York. We'll first be going to see the Temptations and the Four Tops on Friday night. Then Saturday will be knitting by the lake and spending time with family. I think my niece will be coming over with my great niece and nephew. I can't wait. Started packing:


I'm bringing along the Sasha socks I started knitting this week. They're a fun knit and I can talk and enjoy company while knitting them.

In other knitting news, my friend, Rich, has started a group on Ravelry and is having a KAL with any one of his sock patterns!
I love all his patterns but have yet to knit one. I've narrowed it down to about three different patterns and I'll choose one. The yarn is already picked out. It's Blue Moon's Socks that Rock lightweight in Sky Blue:


Because Rich's patterns have gorgeous cables I really wanted to use a solid colored yarn which will show off the pattern best.

So you can see that even though I haven't blogged much lately I am busy knitting!

Jeck

Oh wow I didn't realize I hadn't posted in such a long time! My stealth knitting has taken up a lot of my time so I haven't been able to post much but I finally got a chance to make a little something for myself.

These are the Jeck socks:





I love these! Fun knit and really cute. They're knit with the now defunct Sanguine Gryphon Eidos yarn and the color is Andromeda. If you're interested in this yarn The Verdant Gryphon carries Eidos.

I'm hoping to photograph the things I've made for Patrick but, as with the knitting, it will have to be a stealth photo session.

Mermaid Parade

Not much to say really. Went to the beach. Did this:


Still working on that damn pair of socks.

Glenn & I ate this:





Then walked the boardwalk and saw this lovely creature:


Had an awesome time. Needless to say I'm sunburned, pooped and very happy. Can't wait till next year!
