new


It's almost winter...officially; by looking out the window...it's here.

My toes feel the cold...new socks are in order!

I pulled out my stitch dictionaries...picked something that looked memorizable, textured - but not too finicky, and immediately cast-on with my new favorite cast-on.
 

I even perused the stash and pulled out this lovely Sanguine Gryphon Bugga yarn in 'tulip tree beauty'.

My toes aren't warm just yet...but soonsoonsoon!

but newer every day.

That is an interesting caston! Did it take a long time to learn? That yarn looks very warm!

You always inspire me to knit more socks. I live in AZ- this is just getting crazy. ;)

I love the spool and button props! That yarn looks scrumptiously squishy, is it?

I see my new favorite color. I want to change my life with it. Warm and neutral. I do not know how you keep getting better and better. It is not possible. But, you do.
Have wonderful Holidays.
