Some more Red Robin: Bird, Nest & Eggs...


Since I finished the pair of Kaffe Fassett socks, and thank you for your comments and emails regarding how to fix the ladders which has been driving me to utter annoyance, I picked up my Chevron scarf. I continue on in Wooly Boully Red Robin: Bird, Nest & Eggs colorway. This is a huge skein of yarn so I am wondering how much of it I will use on the scarf. I will most likely have enough for fingerless gloves as well.

And oh that Jenny, of Woolly Boully. Just arrived: her brand new Softie Sock Yarn (100% merino) in so many awesome colorways. As a lot of you know, Jenny's colorways are inspired by her poetry/prose. I love to include the inspiration from her with each colorway. Check out for yourself. I also have her *original* yarn coming in for a refresh, which is the softest 75%merino/25% nylon I personally have ever felt.

I did wind up and cast on a pair of socks for *me* last night! These are all mine. To go with my new Mary Jane Crocs I ordered last night. Why did I order them on line through Crocs? Because I couldn't find the color I needed. Yep, it's almost College Football season and I got to get my colors ready. They are orange... Clemson University orange.(And our state license campaign paid off - the State of Georgia will now be having Clemson License plates as an option. I mean, hey, they have Auburn - why not Clemson. Look for those in jan '08). My old orange Crocs have given up the ghost but they are great lawn mowing shoes. And the socks I am knitting will be dynamite with my new Crocs. I see a smile on my son, Chris' face, just mentioning his beloved Clemson... Honey, I'll be the one in orange...

Your scarf is knitting up so beautifully--it's inspiring me to finish my chevron scarf, which I started in May, I think. I hope I'll be able to finish mine in time for autumn!

That is a beautiful sock!
I have a croc question: I have the Caymans but I have been thinking of getting the Mary Janes. Are they just as comfortable? I bought my one year old a pair and they are cute on her, but I was wondering if they are good for adults.
Thanks!

The yarn for that scarf is fantastic! It is so unusual. I may have to order some to make a scarf for someone for Christmas.
