On My Needles–June 14th

It seems like it’s been forever since I posted, I’ve been pretty busy working and knitting the last few months…

What’s on my needles???  Lotsa stripey socks!!

These are almost finished, a few more rows of ribbing and then I can bind them off, they should be done today.  These are for Camp Loopy project 1 and I’m loving them!!

These are just a pair of stripey socks that I started last week when I was teaching a friend to knit socks 2 at a time toe up.

And these are going to be a Christmas gift for hubby.  He loves the socks I knit him last year and I’d like to knit him a few pair for Christmas this year.  I’m slowly converting him to a sock snob LOL

Last Friday I had the unique opportunity to visit The Verdant Gryphon studio and spend the day dyeing yarn!!  I dyed 2 batches of Bugga! and 1 batch of Traveller.  Here’s the yarns I brought home from my batches…

Such great socks! How fun was dying yarn? It's gorgeous. And the look on the lady's face with the yellow shirt is hysterical.

Oh wow! I love the yarn you dyed - what fun that looks to be!!! And your sock projects all look great! Those socks for your hubby look perfect for a guy - is that a stripey yarn or are you changing yarns?
