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.

Sockapalooza!

Posted by Amber on August 10, 2007

My sockapaloooza socks came last night!  Made by Nona!  I was so excited – after reading the tutorial for Sidewinders, I just knew these socks would be awesome.

They’re miniMonkeys!  In Gems Pearl – Lilac (heal/toe) and Baby Lilac (body).  And she knit at a super tight gauge for me, so that they’d fit in my shoes.  They’re shorter than your average Monkey, making them more summery (which is perfect, since I wore them today, and it’s “cooled down” to 94 today).  (I always wear handknits as soon as they’re ready.  Let me tell you about the day it was 85 and I wore a silk/wool sweater to work…)

And, she included some awesome extra yarn – Lorna’s Laces “Uptown”

And Jess helped me take photos:

(She thought the picture needed to be more punk, since i don’t have a tattoo to show off)

And she wanted to show off her shoes, even though mine…

…are clearly much more awesome.
