Once again, I decided to join the Sock Knitters Anonymous over on ravelry. Anyone who visits here on a regular basis knows that I'm a bit compulsive about the sock knitting, so the shoe -- or, rather, the sock -- fits. Well, except for the anonymous part. But let's not quibble over details.
This year, I have decided to knit more of the mystery socks. The September mystery sock was designed by Nancy Bush, and the challenge for the month is to knit with yellow yarn. How fortunate that I bought some lovely Fleece Artist Merino sock yarn in Saffron when fleegle was having her destash!
The back has ribbing for part of the sock, but that changes to stockinette further below. I'm having more fun than expected knitting with yellow yarn.
Yellow yarn can be goth, right? Uh... I'm not hearing anything... ahem, moving right along.
I can't believe I haven't publicly gushed over the lovely emergency kit I got from Kathy... do you see the lovely red and black pattern? She made that herself! How very, very cool is that?
And speaking of cool, look at all the useful stuff on the inside! The stitch markers are hand made, and it comes with this adorable little crochet hook doohickey for when I drop stitches, which is bound to happen sooner or later.
Thank you so much! I'm so very, very happy with this. And... I'm working on "stuff"
Because I haven't forgotten about the whole Paying it Forward thing.
I just need to work faster, because we're running out of year.
