for "stupid ol' sock" again!


i am working on a sock for the design contest at sos and i ran out of yarn at the toe byjustthismuch! can you believe it? after sampling the pattern with about 3 different yarns (first, claudia handpaints, then cherry tree hill, and finally wollmeise), i finally went back to the claudia handpaints - only because the pattern was causing the other two yarns to pool really funny and i found it very distracting. i really love the wollmeise though.

so, what do i have to show after 6 weeks of sos? i have 4 single "peony", one each of 2 different designs for bmfa, and this last one with an almost toe. I 'M ON A ROLL!!!! stay tuned to see if i manage to finish any socks for "summer of (NO) socks (so far)."

mystery stole 3 progress: i am still on clue 2. i plan on knitting the "wing". how cool is that?!

so what are you working on?

Could you fudge it in anyway?
I've managed half of one sock of some else's design and 1 and a bit of my own design for the SOS comp. Very bad!

Gorgeous color of socks, and I know how frustrating it is to have so little left, and no yarn! ACK!

Ack! I hate whan that happens! Such a beautiful sock, though! (If I remember correctly, doesn't Claudia's HP have less yardage than other sock yarns?)
