Party Till the Cows Come Home!
This was a lot of fun to do....and the best part is that these projects go very fast PLUS they go to a good cause! (It's also a great way to use up bits of yarn to "de-stash".)
The bracelet to the right was custom made for me by Kris (Knitty Chick). It fits perfectly! She also sent me a wonderful CD - we played it last Saturday at the yarn shop. The weather was terrible with torrential rains, but the music on the CD was very soothing and relaxing.....the perfect music to knit by! Thanks so much for the wonderful gifts!
Looking at this lovely bracelet makes me think that I too want to get into jewelry making.....no.....must.....stop .....myself. The stash of yarn and fiber is overwhelming enough.....I don't need to add another "acquisition" hobby to my repertoire!
These socks knit up VERY fast...and I love the colors! I used Regia 6 Ply Crazy Color. It's a 75% superwash wool/25% nylon yarn. Again, I used a combination of several sock patterns and used size 4 needles (quite large for knitting socks!).
They are nice and soft and fit perfectly!!!! Too bad summer is nearly here - I'm always barefoot!
