Flow Motion Done & Pedal pushers begun.

Flow Motion Done

Here are my flow motion socks done; this was a fun & quick knit. I used Kollage yarns Yummy, colorway Overseas & size 5 dpns. The yarn is bamboo & wool; we'll see how it holds up.

Pedal pushers

I always have at least one pair of socks on the needles, so I began the pedal pushers by Deby Lake using Tofutsies. I love to use the Tofutsies!

Leaf & Tendril done & Flow Motion Begun

Leaf & Tendril done, originally uploaded by EeyoreknitsinME.

Leaf & Tendril socks by Cat Bordhi; knit in Kollage Lucious, colorway Asparagus, needle size 1.5. Once I figured everything out; they moved along pretty quickly. I shortened them by 1 repeat; I hate knee socks. This yarn was a pain, very splitty. Instead of keeping these, they will be gifted.

I also started another Cat Bordhi sock with another Kollage yarn-figured I give them both another shot. These are the Flow Motion socks found in either Vogue Knitting Fall 2006 or Vogue's ultimate sock book. I must say, this is a very quick knit, and I'm liking the yummy better than the lucious. My only complaint is that I found 2 knots in the first skein. Quick rant-I wish yarn companies would sell partial skeins instead of knotting a skein to make yardage/weight. Just a personal pet peeve!

Fire Walk Socks

Fire Walk Socks Done, originally uploaded by EeyoreknitsinME.

My very first design! The color of these socks (Cherry Tree Hill Supersock in Sugar Maple) reminded me of a campfire, so these are knit in a modified flame lace with a short row heel. The flames lick all the way to your toes. Other variations could be blues for waves, or greens for blades of grass.

Cleo & Ant

Cleo & Ant Done, originally uploaded by EeyoreknitsinME.

This is the second pair of self-designed socks that I've done. My daughter was doing a report on Cleopatra, I had this Tofutsies from SWTC that reminded me of swirling water and presto! Cleo & Ant was born. The front of the sock is a modified Cleopatra cable, flanked by her egyptian asps. The back is Arrowhead lace bordered by identical ladders. The Arrowhead lace is continued through the heel flap.


OK, so I'm new to this. I've read a lot of friends blogs, and have decided that I need to jump on the bandwagon. Just because it's the in thing to do, ya know?
