Seduce: to win over; attract

Yarn seduces me with her siren call. "Pick me! Pick me!" I am hopelessly enchanted by yarn and am delighted by the endless choices.

WIP Wednesday - March

SOCKS!
.....of course!! My favorite (or one of my favorite) things to knit....

Why yes, I do have three socks projects going on at the same time. They are all three different so I have a little variety and am never bored with the patterns.

First up is a test knit. I am test knitting this pattern for Bev Warner at My Little Room.

I am using Shelridge Farm (85% wool/15% nylon) in color Toasted Allspice and dpns US2. The yarn is from Simply Sock Yarn Co sock club.

I love cables and this pattern has cables! It is hard to see the pattern with the dark yarn but hopefully as I get more done, you'll be able to see it better.





Second is the SKA Sockdown! Mystery Sock. (I know, I know... but I couldn't resist!)

Clue 1 (which I am only half way done with it)

I am using Simply Sock Yarn Co., Seacoast Handpainted Yarns - Limited Edition - Lagoon (it was one of the sock club yarns) and Hiya Hiya 9" circular needle US 1/2.25m. I am using marker for the repeat sections.

A great pattern so far! It has twisted stitches, cables and yarn overs!



And the third sock... my pattern. I am working up a sock for the SA Knifty Knitters TKGA guild for their March meeting. We will be starting a knit along (kal).

I'm using Trekking Pro Natura (75% wool/25% bamboo) color 1506 (green) and dpns US 1/2.25m. Yarn purchased at lys Wool n Cotton Shop.

I have most of the pattern written but still have to tweak it some.




Enough of a break... I'm off to knit some more... on SOCKS!!

I'm think I'm coming down with SSS again, just looking at all these socks. Can I catch it Vicariously? You are the SuperSock Wizzardess! Or is it SockSuper Wizzardess??

I'll have to be sure to make the March meeting...when is it again? If it's the 27th, I'm there. If the Saturday before, I'll be on my way to NM. We meet on Saturdays, right??

I'm very confused these days. :P

Looking at your pattern, it could be good for variegated yarns with the biased stitch pattern.

Yes, the meeting is the 27th. Hope to see you there. I'm excited about the sock pattern.
