Knitting Time:

The Martina Behm's new pattern Tubularity! Using US size 3s - 3.25mm needles. First section wth Jill Drapper Makes Suff Splendor Sock Yarn in Spinach. Second section in  Miss Babs Yummy Superwash Sock & Baby Yarn in Zombie Prom.  Third section started with Miss Babs Yummy in Impatience.  Will also include Inspiration Dyeworks. 6 sections rather than the 7, have full skeins so I'll divid total yardage by 6 rather than 7 to know how much to use of each.

Socks for Dad in Regia Snowflake Colors color way 7709 using US 0 - 2.0mm needles for a 2x2 Rib. Blips of color, not fair isle effect or a colorwork effect of any sort to my eye.

Opal Socks I love: in Opal 4-Fach colorway 7126 Maurer using US size 0s - mm needles for a 2x2 toe up Rib. 32sts cast on for the toe.

Golden Pear Hat by Melissa Thomson using Malabrigo Rios in 412 Teal Feather and Dragon Fly Fibers Traveller in Ruby Ruby.  US size 7s - 4.5mm needles.  Knit in an afternoon.  LOVE IT!

Vivid by TinCanKnits with Berroco Vintage in US size 7s, 4.5mm needles. 17th Square in progress.


Sockhead Hat! with Rhinebeck Yarn! double intention. Sockhead hat by Kelly McClure using Into the Whirled Ulundi Yarn in the October 2013 Club Colorway 221B. Using US size 2.5 - 3.0mm needles. We'll see.

Questionable Socks?
Book Review:
5 Patterns retails on Rav for $20. Really like the details in the Bisbee top.  But by far my favorite is the Diamonback Cowl
