Yarny Goodness!

Another super exciting fun knitblog

  • November Knit Goals

    I'm prone to being a scatterbrain, so I try to make a short list of things to accomplish each month (lest I have 27 different non matching socks).

    Same as last month: Sleep more. Study more. Knit more. Sleep more.

FO: Pomatomus

Pattern: Pomatomus by Cookie A, via Knitty
Yarn: Koigu KPPPM (color 200, I think, but the ball band has been lost to time)
Needles: Size 0. Two circulars for the leg and the foot, double points for the gusset (it was so pretty, I couldn’t not do the heel flap, even though I normally sub in a short row heel).
Mods: Only did two leg repeats – the koigu has less yardage than the Shelridge, and since I couldn’t remember which color it was, I didn’t want to risk running out.
Notes: Love, love, love these! (Incidentally, check out Tristan Prettyman’s song “Love, Love, Love” (third song on the list)). I totally disregarded the weather forecast today (80 degrees), and wore them anyway. And during the photo shoot, Maggie Sefton of the Knitting Mysteries Series popped in, and she loved them too! So much so, that she said she was going to call Knitty and find out about possibly including them in her next book!

Super big detail shot

Next up: I’m going to start the second yarrow rib sock. And next Thursday, I’m totally starting the entrelac socks. I found some great Claudia Handpaint in “Just Plum” that I’m going to use instead of “Pink Posey.” They’re going to be my end-of-finals treat. Along with another Ribbi Cardi.

Boy, I’m talkative lately!

    That’s too funny that you met Maggie Sefton at Stitch DC. That is where I met her! She must live there and tell everyone that she lives in CO. Your socks look fabulous!
