More Sensational Knitted Socks

I finished the Waffle Rib socks made from Sockata some time ago, but I haven’t posted a photo yet. Here it is, along with one sock of another set of Ridged Feather that I am working on right now.

You can also see my new sock blockers from Chappy’s Fiber Arts & Crafts. I love the blockers, I may order more. I am thinking of hanging a few pair on the walls in my computer/knitting/beading room.

Here’s some close-up shots of both socks:

Great right? The bad news is I made the Ridged Feather sock a bit too short, so I will need to undo the toe, rip back to the foot and knit about 8 more rows. I have more than enough yarn to do this, but dang – I did such a good job on the kitchener and all.

Other news. Coming up October 13 – 15 I will be attending the Wisconsin Spin In. This time it is in Wausau, WI. No outdoor events, just classes and vendors and such in a hotel. I am going to have a great time getting away – just me myself and I. I have signed up for 3 classes: Dyeing Patterned Sock Yarn with Tracey Schuh, Dyeing with Natural Indigo with Stefania Isaacson, and Straighten Your World With Combs with Susan McFarland. I hope I get into all these, if not – time to spin, knit or shop!

William-Thomas will be dropping me off at the hotel, then heading farther north for some time with his brother and sister-in-law. Spencer will be going too, of course.

My poor puppy is having some stomach woes right now – very gassy. Time for a bland diet and Acidophilus to get his tummy back in order.

I am really enjoying the Fall-like weather. This weekend we will be going to the Minnesota Rennaissance Festival. I didn’t plan on going this year, but Brenda of Pink Moon Hallow sent me 2 free tickets. Hard to say no to that! If you are going, be sure to check out her booth. She makes and sells the best soap, incense, scented oils, etc.

Peace!
