Klunk.

<--Sound of me falling down the rabbit hole. 
Yes, thanks to all of you posting about the super-keen new L*K snowman series (and the guilty know who they are)........

...I, too, now have to stitch this series. 
Oh hello, great-big-new project I have no time for! But aren't the colors bright and fun? :)

So thanks for that, people. lol


Also, 'October' socks............

Fini. 
 
The yarn is an Opal one I dug out from deeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep within the stash and I really had no idea anymore what it was supposed to look like. It was a YARN SURPRISE. They have this Fruit Loop thing going on that I'm digging. (And yes, I could have looked it up beforehand on Ravely but where is the fun in that? I assumed I liked it enough at some point to actually buy it.) They are a teeny bit loose in the foot for me but as they are going into the box to possibly be gifted to someone at some point that's not a problem. I really should stick to size 0 needles though when doing 'girl' socks. I'm just not a tight enough knitter for the 1's, I think. :|

Sign ups start today for the Cookie A 2012 Sock Club, btw, for those interested. This year's club, the first year, was fantastic - easily the best 'club' of that kind I've ever joined, as far as sock knitting goes. I've joined clubs before and almost always disliked the yarn/pattern pairings and/or the patterns outright. Cookie does some FANTASTIC patterns though and to get 12 exclusive ones over the course of a year? HEAVEN. And I liked that all of the yarn was solid colored or mostly solid, the better to show the patterns off.**

Also x 2, new Santa posted:
  
Because I never get tired of doing Santas. :)

**Not a paid endorsement, if that's not obvious. I just really loved the club this year. :)

You can be forgiven for succumbing to the temptation of the those cute snowmen.

Beautiful socks! Those will make a great gift.

And a cutie pie Santa bead... he looks a little perplexed but who wouldn't with all he has to do!

Catherine said...

You caved! I love the LK snowmen!
Love your Santa - he's adorable!

Beth said...

Wonderful socks! I took have caved on the new L*K series - not sure if it is to be one large or six small!

Jan said...

That Santa bead is adorable.
I only have one thing to say about the socks - I WANT THEM! I love the colors. Just beautiful.

Nononononono....I just told myself I didn't have to join Cookie's club. Let's not talk about it anymore! I'm holding my hands over my ears! LALALALA!!!

I BET those socks fit me, LOL!!! Love 'em, they're awesome. And your snowman series is going to be adorable...what a fun fall!!!

Margaret said...

I do have to say those LK Santas are adorable. lol! Worth giving in to I think. The sock club sounds wonderful. All I have to do is learn how to knit socks. lolol! I want to, really. But I never do. Sigh. It would make so much sense too, since I have to buy children's socks to fit me. Love the bead, love the socks. Love love love.....

Carol said...

Ooh, what fun socks!! And your Santa bead is adorable--his expression is perfect :)

Enjoy starting the new LK snowmen--they do look like a lot of fun to stitch!

valerie said...

O.M.G. Why'd you do that?! Now I want to join the sock club and I've never knit socks in my life and haven't knit a thing in 2 years. Ack! What do I do?

Love the Santa beads!

Lei said...

What a lucky girl you are. I think the snowman series is just the cutest thing. You will have fun stitching them, that is for sure.

Your Santa is too cute! Can your beads be used in necklaces or are they better suited for other things?

As always - love, love, love your socks! Lei

Stunning socks, such fruity colours.
Fat men are cure, I've seen a lot of oars who couldn't resist them.

Pumpkin said...

ROFL! You're just one of the MANY that have given in to this project ;o)

Love the Fruit Loop socks! I found my sock yarn today but alas, they will never be made at this rate :o(

Siobhan said...

Love the santa bead! Great job on the socks, too. I'm working hard on resisting the 6 Fat Men--they are too cute! I will enjoy watching your progress. :)
