I just had to blog about these socks, Makin' Waves from Monica of Monica Knits. She used Pagewood Farms - Glacier Bay in the Navajo colorway and they are gorgeous. Pattern? Her own of course. And not only that but Monica has 2 designs in the brand new Vogue Knitting book - Cables on the Go. I have been checking at my local B&N and Borders but haven't been able to snag a copy yet. Way to go Monica!
We also have on order lots of Pagewood Farms Chugiak Sock yarn which is a 2ply tight twist. Look for it soon in our Pagewood Farms aisle.
In other knitting news, I just made a quick cell phone case for my mom out of my own hand dyed worsted weight. Now that dyeing day was an experience. I have done this before but honestly only with kool-aid. This was the real stuff. Needless to say, this color was not what I had in mind but is kinda an oops. Can't stand to waste any yarn so I will use it.
And my car swerved into the parking lot of my local Goodwill (GW as I refer to it) and that is always a fun time for me. I found Knit Knack Kit which includes little patterns - fresh in the box, unused with needles, etc. for $1.71. That is where I got the pattern for the cell phone.
What I need to learn to do is knit with reckless abandon. I *think* I can't knit without a pattern. I hate to admit it but I still have to refer to my pattern for short row heels on my socks. Maybe once I knit a drawer full, that will change.
So let me put it out there to the Knitting Universe. Can *you* just think up something in your head you want to knit and knit it?
