Tidal Wave Socks

Summer of Socks is moving along quickly. I on the other hand am moving slowly with the sock knitting. But I managed to finish these socks that I started a few weeks ago.

Pattern: Tidal Wave Socks
Yarn: SWTC Tofutsies
Needles: Addi Turbo 12" circulars and KnitPicks Classic Circulars, both size 0

This yarn was a pleasure to knit with. It was a bit splitty but pretty easy to use with the KnitPicks Classic Circulars.

I've been listening to various craft related podcasts lately.

The majority are for knitting but there are a few for crocheting and spinning. Slowly I'm finding and listening to these casts.

A few favorites are:

Lime and Violet - These two yarn obsessed ladies are a hoot. The show is focused on knitting but they talk about everything else. A hint if you're listening with earplugs - keep the volume low because their laughter is loud, very loud.

Inspirational Wednesday - This podcast is ran by Adrienne and Toya and focuses on crafts in general. Very interesting listening.

Socks in the City - A podcast about socks, sock yarns, etc.

Basic Toe Up Sock Finished

I completed the sock class at Woolbearers a few weeks ago.

Project: Basic Toe Up Sock
Yarn: Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock Yarn, color 64 Gold Hill
Needles: Addi Turbos, size 1

The class was a lot of fun and I picked up quite a few tips from Jessica who is a wonderful teacher. She posted a picture of the other sock students and myself on her Flickr site.

Now I'm working on finished the Tidal Wave Socks that I started weeks ago. Summer of Socks is well underway. I'm not doing as well as I wanted to but hopefully I can get a few more pairs completed.
