<--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............
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. :)
