Clear Boots and Clear Clogs...who needs more for their socks?

And with Blue Moon Fiber Arts putting out sock yarn like this...? I'll have something for my clogs!

Here's what you're looking at
Socks that Rock in Stonewashed and Seal Rock

Socks that Rock in Stonewashed and Seal Rock, one end of the colourway

Socks that Rock in Stonewashed and Seal Rock, the other end of the colourway

Socks that Rock in Stonewashed and Garnet Dreams

And speaking of Socks that's a OTN update.

Off the needles are the slippers I felted for my grandmother. I would never otherwise use these colors, but for her, it's everything.

On the needles
are firsts for me: Socks that Rock socks in Jewel of the Nile, with Cherry Tree Hill toes, and using Jeanie Townsend's Cascading Leaves pattern.

With the addition of EZ's fitted arch, which I just started, thanks to the wonderful Sole Solution software.

See Eunny Knit!: Technickety: How to unvent a simple cable

Eunny Jang did yeoman's service a half-year-ago with this bit on: See Eunny Knit!: Technickety: How to unvent a simple cable. Lovely work. Very clear. All can benefit.

It also reminds me of what I heard on Pointy Sticks most recent Podcast: if you don't know it's isn't.

So, too all who haven't heard otherwise--Cables are EASY! Go to it!

Long Time No Blog...

Buried under work begins to describe the Olympics/post Olympics universe I've been in. There hasn't been a lot of anything fun, but there has been a lot of...everything else.
The other problem is the basic lack of sleep afforded me by my 2 year old. I don't know WHAT is going on, but he's suddenly dependant on a plug (pacifier), screams at the drop of...a breath, and waking up constantly at night.
What fun!

So I hadn't even had time to post pics of my fun spinning day with Lucinda at KnittingSmith in Cold Spring!

To make amends--here is Lucinda with Penelope (okay, aren't their names just perfect for two fabu spinning babes?) fiddling with many wheels, lotsa fiber, and some yarn.

It was one of the truly great days I've had in months. Second only to the day I spent spinning with Lucinda and Linda up at Linda's (gorgeous!) lakefront home.


And here's some recent FOs:
A chemo cap for Georgia's mother in North Carolina (love that Chinchilla yarn!):

Socks for Sam's birthday:

A New Charity

Perhaps this Jewish Board Charity can benefit from some of my stash...something to look into! Thanks to Kntting Newscast with Rhonda Bell for getting the word out!
Also found this nice little site of Knitting Haiku.

A First Foray at Librivox

The Story of an Hour.

Aside from the crackling on the's okay.
Anyone who knows why that cracklin' happens, please post and let me know. I've done my best to eliminate static as an option, but you'll hear it jumping. That's not lousy editing, it's something else.

More Public Agony

Mason-Dixon Knitting also blew it, though they ascribe the failure to too much drinking in Torino.

If only I'd been so lucky...
