  sweet socks!

I've been so busy with work and school lately, I haven't had a chance to blog. I started my junior year of college and a new job, and tomorrow I start a second job, all within the span of 2 weeks! Whew! I realized tonight that I never got a chance to blog my Sweettarts Socks, so here they are!

Pattern: 56 st basic stockinette. Yarn: Knit Pick's Simply Stripes (sadly discontinued!) in Sweet Tarts. Needles: Susan Bates US 0 dpns.

This yarn is really wonderful. I knit Kellen a pair almost a year ago and they've held up perfectly. He wears them all the time, and trust me, he is not gentle about washing. He just tosses them in the washer, and the hot dryer without any problems. No felting, pilling, holes or signs of wear. I'm really looking forward to wearing our coordinating socks together!

Other than that, I'm plugging along on Christmas knitting and sneaking a few rounds of a new pair of socks whenever I can. I'll blog about those when I actually have some significant progress!


ARG xmas stomach just flipped.

Those socks are AWESOME. I love green and pink together for some reason.
Holy cow, definitely sounds like you've been busy!! Make sure to find some 'you' time! Hoping to send out a little something to you in the next week or soo... I'll let you know when it goes out!
