Yarn: Trekking XXL
Needles: Size 2 Addi Turbo 12" circulars, Size 2 Brittany dpn's
Pattern: Yarnharlot's Basic Sock Recipe
I saw the show on Knitty Gritty with guest Stephanie Pearl-McPhee aka Yarn Harlot and decided to give it a go. This was a very easy pattern to do. I'm not crazy about the Trekking XXL yarn. The yarn is sort of rough. On the other hand these are really sturdy socks.
Yarn: Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock Yarn, color 203 Seaside
Pattern: Cider Moon Saucy Pattern
Needles: Size 0 Addi Turbo 12" circulars, Size 1 Brittany dpn's
I love this yarn and will definitely use it again. I didn't get a good shot of the stitch definition. I'm still playing with my new camera and don't have the technique down yet. Please bear with me.

Yarn: Soy Silk's TOFUtsies
I'm loving this yarn so far. I haven't done much work on them because I'm trying to get the shawlette done. Afterwards though I plan to knock these out.
I'm gearing up for Summer of Socks 2007 hosted by Jessica. While browsing her blog I came across these sock blockers that she got. So I hopped over to this site and ordered a pair. My spinning wheel blockers are fabulous.
I also noticed she's teaching a toe up sock class at Woolbearers. As I'm still new to sock knitting, I decided to take the class. I'm a horrible student so wish me luck!! Class begins tomorrow.
