Rainy Day FO's

Pattern:  Clandestine by Cookie A.  (Free pattern on Knitty!)    Yarn: Fall Creek Fibers Powder Mill Sock Color: Green  Needles:  US 1 1/2 - 2.5 mm  Started:  September 7, 2010 Completed:  September 19, 2010

Note: This yarn is 50% silk (I forgot that when I was knitting and for some reason assumed it contained Bamboo).  Either way, both fibers are a bit inelastic and the yarn was a little splitty.  The end result, however, is a gorgeous pair of socks.  As with any Cookie a. pattern I've ever knit, the end result is a piece of art (due to the pattern, not to me!)

As for Fall Creek Fibers, I joined a three-month yarn club and I would purchase any number of skeins from them.  Especially this one.  Her hand-blended tea gets a thumbs up from the college boy. 

I am off to a movie with the mom, and then packing for the weekend trip to the cabin.

Very striking socks!

And I want the bag, too.
Those are gorgeous socks!
Those socks are amazing! That is not your brainless knitting going on there. I checked out her book from the library and was amazed at her patterns.

Have fun at the cabin!
