winter comfort

You must do the thing you think you cannot do. 
~ Eleanor Roosevelt

This is apparently my 12th Toasty Twist sock.
This pattern rivals the Monkey sock in my book...
or should I say my Ravelry project page!!

It's as perfect a pattern as humanly possible to create.
So far every one of the 12 skeins of multi-colored yarn I've used has played well with it.
I made one small modification ages ago, 
and none other since then.
If you haven't made Toasty Twist socks yet...do so.

I don't like change.
With this pattern
change isn't necessary.

Love. It.

And the yarn...a rare gem on the new Tigger Targhee base at BMFA.
Loving. It. Also.
It's dubbed tigger for a reason - it bounces!!

p.s. did you notice the Grimm sighting?!
p.s.s. Stepping Stone cafe was the backdrop for this photoshoot...yum!

Life isn’t about finding yourself. 
Life is about creating yourself.

New socks.
I actually have had a case of cast-on-itis.
I have 3 new pairs of socks on the needles right now.

This is pair number 1.
BMFA STR yarn 'Penguins on ice'.
