FO Friday 68


YAY, it's Friday! I've been working hard this week, dyeing yarn, re-skeining and making minis, as well as getting the house back together after the holidays. Since we bought our Christmas tree on Christmas Eve, we just got rid of it last night, so of course cleaning was in order. It's amazing how many pine needles a dry Christmas tree can leave as a trail.

We have a fun weekend in store, as we're going to the LA Kings hockey game Saturday afternoon, and then we have a Groupon to Trader Vic's across from Staples Center, where the Kings play. It should be a fun weekend, as it's our first game of the season. We're also going to get a chance to spend time with my parents. We haven't seen them since Thanksgiving, so that will be exciting.

Anyway, now onto what you came here for (I'm sure it wasn't to read about my dry Christmas tree or my weekend plans! LOL). I have another FO to share, but I apologize because it's more socks! I feel like that's all I'm sharing with you, along with a few months in the past few months. There will be more socks to come, too!

I used Candy Skein Yummy in Robin Egg Malt Ball. The pictures are a little dark below, but this pattern looks great in this color. Speaking of the pattern, I made the Hedgerow Socks by Jane Cochran. I wasn't so sure about the pattern as I made them, as they look a little odd not stretched out on feet, but I LOVE them on. They look like little vines, but it's a super easy pattern of just knits and purls! I highly recommend it. Another part of what I enjoyed about the socks is the heel. It's not your traditional heel flap, but the pattern on the leg carries down into the heel flap before the heel turn transitions into stockinette. You can see in one of the pictures below.

  7. You've become quite the sock knitter. It's amazing how you can be inspired especially when it's your own yarn.

  8. Love the socks. I still haven't finished my first pair, which I must have started over a year ago! Maybe knitting socks just isn't for me. Or you never know, maybe 2012 is the year of the knitted socks!

  12. Sadly, I don't have a FO Friday to share this week but I did want to say that it's okay to tell us about the trail of pine needles and the things you do outside of fibery goodness. Seriously, we don't mind and it makes you see more.......real. I was going to say, "human" but then it makes you sound like you're some weird robot that happens to knit and while that would be fabulous, it just doesn't make sense.

    So, in short, it's okay to share things outside of fiber. We don't mind. We'll still come back. Really.

  13. Oh those are gorgeous! I may have to try those and the yarn is very lovely! And I'm okay with the sharing of socks...I know you mentioned the whole crochet vs knitting thing the other day..I learned to knit this summer, mainly for socks..I've made one pair...but have been on a crochet binge for a couple of weeks...for me, it goes back and forth...

  14. That sock pattern really is amazing, I love the tiny-vines look, especially in the pretty, pretty colours of Robin's Egg Malt Ball. :D

    (Also, ugh, pine needles! I love having a real tree in the house, but the pine needles all over when it gets shuttled out? Not so much. It really is amazing how many of them they manage to lose and not be all...bald and dead-tree-ish.)

  30. I love the socks! They look so comfy, and the pattern is really beautiful.

    Have fun at the Kings game! I must admit, I've been a bit distracted by our new coach - he looks like he could be Robert Englund's twin!
