Gray, Blue and White

New Socks for Robert. He's gotten from me, 2 hats, and 1 other pair of socks that are more for fun, not really wearable. He was admiring some handknit socks last weekend when one of John's friends was over. So, here I am working on a pair for him now. It is an easy pattern. I think it is called Garter Rib. After the cuff it is a row of K2, P2, then a row of all knit. Very easy to remember. I am using Regia Silk for these, on size US 0 Addis. The color is Pewter, or 91. I am going to try to get them done by the 5th of March, for our anniversary, but I won't hold my breath either. Oh, I bought the yarn from Loopy Ewe. I ordered it on Sunday or Monday, I think and she had it here on Thursday!! I need another 1 1/2 inches then can start the heel.

Titania's Revenge by Cookie A. This was one of the Rockin' Sock Club socks from last year. The colorway is also called Titania. This is a cool pattern, but it is a 10 row repeat and takes a long time. I think I am partially through section 4, and need two more after that. On the foot part it switches to a cable pattern, so it is totally different than the leg.

Last weekend's sky.

This week is going to go by fast. I work two days at least. We have sock club shipments to do this week. 2000 members. Ugh!! We'll see what happens later in the week, I really need to do other things, but I know that these need to get out too. Then it's on to the weekend, again. It's anniversary weekend, so we are going to do an overnighter some place, maybe home. ;)

I am going to have a contest soon. Hmm, maybe an anniversary contest. More on that later this week. I promise!! Maybe throw some STR into the mix...............So, be thinking chickens this week.

Good to see you back Tammy. OOOOOh! How I love the Titania colorway. I would have never picked it out on my own, but I loved it after I knit it up! That's the fun of a sock club.

Sounds like you're a busy girl. Have a great week.
