a parable


A  little iPhone photography for our glamour shots today.
The Toasty Twist socks in BMFA STR lightweight 'pitter pat' are finished!

This was the perfect color to celebrate a long and hot summer!!
Right now...my autumn yarn stash is calling to me...
...and hopefully crisp, cool days will follow my lead!

Stay tuned!


The end of a melody is not its goal: but nonetheless, 
had the melody not reached its end
it would not have reached its goal either. 
A parable.

flying time


Darn the wheel of the world! 
Why must it continually turn over? 
Where is the reverse gear? 
~ Jack London

I can't believe it has been so long since I last posted.

After a month I'm back with the same pair of socks...LOL!!
But a different cafe!
A small blessing!

And the socks are finished!! Yay!!
Cotty socks by the lovely Carrie aka IGK.
This is one of my all time favorite patterns. 
And it comes with its own picot edge...no mods necessary on that front!!
The yarn is from Fiber Seed Sprout.
This is my first time using this yarn.
It is springy and wonderful. 

I have another pair of socks that are almost finished.
I hope it won't take me another month to finish and photograph them.
Fingers crossed!

p.s. When I'm not here you can probably find me playing around on Instagram.

I keep saying that.

I'm never really gone...you know that, right?

I have a new sock, too!
This gorgeous yarn is new to me. It was a lovely gift from Linda from the MSWF.

Yowza!!

adventuring


You know what that ball of yarn means, right?

Drumroll, please...


An FO!!


I took the socks out for a drive on a sunny afternoon
a few weekends ago, and stopped for coffee
and a photoshoot.


Good times were had by all!

Sock details:
Intrepid Traveler pattern by me
with mods for a picot cuff and linen stitch heel
Victory sock yarn in Monet's Garden from Knitted Wit

Cast on and take yourself and your socks on an adventure!


Only those who risk going too far 
can possibly find out how far they can go.

a new action


A real decision is measured by the fact that you've taken a new action. 
If there's no action, you haven't truly decided.
~ Anthony Robbins

Finally.
Something new on the needles.

Here are the details:
