Since I was taking a picture of the linkless kit, I thought I could take a picture of The Mardi Gras Socks (cannot express my deep love and affection for Jitterbug) and my Garden Harvest Socks that I finished last night. The Handpainted yarn is by Fernwood Woolworks, I bought mine on ebay a good while ago, but she has an etsy shop, too. Oh, heck, did you see the one called 'tickertape'??? darn links. I did the heels and toes in Paton's Kroy Sock yarn, I was worried that I would run out of yarn since I previously made a pair of gloves out of this hank. hah, you should see how much I had left! But I really like the socks like this, so, it is ok.
So Rani had asked what I thought of Vogue Knitting. I really like it. It is more inspiration than anything. I am larger than their models (size large is a 36" chest?!?!) and I am not really going to spend the time to knit high fasion garments that I have to wait for them to come back into fasion because it took so long for me to knit it. But I do love the magazine. The one that I do knit objects from is Interweave Knits and if you haven't seen Knitting Daily, go.
Heather asked what I thought of Harry Potter... Oh, so, good. I am thinking of rereading the series, myself. Eldest just finished book one and wants to talk about all the nooks and crannies. It has been years since I read that book! So, we will see.
Ok, off to the pool. The weather is supposed to be unbearable again today.
