Swatching Gloss for my Socktoberfest socks..........started w/ US 1 circs, dropped down to US0 dpns. I still don't think I'm getting gauge so tomorrow, when I can see straight and I'm not so sleepy I'll recount my stitches.

Some sock stash enhancement; I may never finish my socks in time but I've got the sock yarn stash enhancement down flat, BAYBEEEEE!!!!! Mountain Colors Bearfoot in Indian Corn. I am all about the fall color schemes at the moment.

Some Manos for a scarf; color#104. I'm not sure if I like it or not, definitely now my normal colors - it's the gold that is throwing me off.

And finally my WLD Krista Tee seamed without sleeves. She's been soaked and is currently blocking. I hope to finish the sleeves prior to week's end and wear her ever so proudly over the weekend or early next. Of course with the chilly days we've been having around Charm City she'll be hidden under a jacket or coat; what a shame.

Soctoberfest II

Today is the beginning of Lolly's Socktoberfest!!! I'm excited. I'm going to use my gift certificate from the lovely ladies at work for some of Knit Picks' new Gloss sock yarn and 24" US 1 circs. Going to try my first pair of socks on a set of circs. I just love my Circs!!!!

I'm almost finished the front of Krista. I've knit and re-knit the front top about five times........I am so ready to be done with this sweater. It really is a simple straight forward knit that I'm making completely difficult! lol

Simple Knitted Bodice is next on my list......I was late for the September 1st start on the KAL but I'll make it in October; then I'm on to ChicKnits new pattern Ariann. Isn't she lovely? I have some Silkroad Tweed I'm going to attempt to use, wish me luck getting gauge.
