Socks, socks, and more socks!!!!!

I received these lovely socks from one of the knitter's on the Knitty boards. A while back I offered sock yarn to knitter's who were interested in knitting socks for free sock yarn. I had amassed quite a collection of sock yarn but hadn't knit a pair. It was a great way to stash bust while receiving some lovely hand knit socks!!!

I had actually started these as my first pair of handknit socks and couldn't get past the large amount of stitches and the cast on of the Diamond Top Socks pattern from Knit Picks. The socks turned out lovely and fit like a dream!!!!! I love them!!!!

It's very hard to take a good photo of your foot.

Here's another try; at least I get an A for effort.

Where does the time go?

First off, CAMERA found!!!!! I was over my parent's house on Easter and mentioned I misplaced my digital camera. My Mother reminded me that I left it at her house at Christmas, yes Christmas, and I asked her to put it up for me. "Don't I remember?" Obviously not as I've been tearing my house apart looking for it. Needless to say, I wish I would have mentioned it to her earlier.

So this post will have some PICTURES!!! Yipee!!!

First off a few pics of some sock I got in the "knit socks for yarn swap".

Love, love these socks!!!!

I've been working on Glee from Zephyr Style. This is my first top down sweater; it's been a dream now that I'm past all the stockinette. Not looking forward to picking up the many many many stitches necessary for the collar but a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do.

Got a new bag!!! Made w/ Amy Butler fabric. I love, love, love her fabric designs! I'm dying to make a quilt from her Sunbloom Lush collection but am having difficulty figuring out when I'm supposed to fit it in with all my planned knits.
