Lost in a sea of yarn and needles. Lusting after handmade socks and all things lacy



If you missed out on Sockapalooza4 here is another sock KAL

It isn't a swap but a three month KAL, starting with the Summer Solstice (June 21st)and ending with the Autumn Equinox (Sept 21st) Makes me feel all druid. There are contests and other fun stuff. You get to flash your socks and their is a contest for the most socks knit (Jayne) And you can enter designs in a design contest.
I can't believe I signed up for more socks. But there is no pressure of completing a perfect sock for a partner.

Speaking of which I heard from my Sockapalooza swap pal. *Waves Hello* I am waiting for yarn to get started on socks for my pal. The yarn is coming from Canada and is probably sitting in a customs office someplace.
Oh and I would like to thank Jayne for pointing me in the direction of Etsy. Oh good another place to spend hours drooling and spend money. I have no control.
My socks are coming along well. I really really love the yarn and the pattern. I stuck my finger with the damn needle so I am taking a day off to let it heal a bit.
I would take pictures (the socks not the wounded diget) except the most evil line of thunderstorms is heading our way. The radar is a bit frigtening. Cate is probably getting hammered right now, and Kim will be next. Hale winds and lightening. Could we just have some nice normal rain, pleaseeeeeeeee

Ahhhhh...Fearless Fibers is a luverly shop. I don't think you can go wrong there. They don't want to ship to Canada, so I've bookmarked a few other goody shops. I have bought other things at etsy, but not yarn yet. Feels like a pandora's box that I'm not ready to open, but I love everything. Especially the super funky hand spuns.

I found out that my sock pal has almost the same size feet as mine, so that ought to make it easier. Have to say hello to her soonest. I want to use the BFL, but she is open to anything. Colour?? Style?? Help!!

Hah. I sent that line of storms to Benne earlier this week, she's passing them on. Put on a pot of soup, and find a good book!

PS-poor finger!

There is an Etsy article in the new IWK. I have been studiously avoiding the place myself.

Jayne my partner wants funky. What the heck is that. I can't tell from her blog as it is mostly not knitting. Oi
You could create any color you want. Only use dye dropouts need to go hunting at Etsy
Hey Bets, I am loving the cool weather. It went from 89 to 59 in one day. I hate the heat and humidity
I don't blame you Joan, cause unlike Elann, there is a lot of stuff you can get hungry for.
My dd has already conned me out of a Pirate Girrl pendant. :-}
