Note: This yarn is a very fine fingering, and the color is lovely. It appears her shop is closed right now, but there is a lot of her yarn stashed away on Ravelry. It was hard to capture the true green in this photo - but take my word for it - it's green.

Note: This has been a fun project. It's kind of nice to attack a pattern like this, a little bit each week.
I managed to get into the last three shipments of hand-dyed yarn from Fall Creek Fibers yarn club. This has been some beautiful yarn. She also mixes teas and dyes fiber. I loved the tea sample that she sent. I have the house to myself for the weekend, so I am putting together sock kits from my stash and finishing up some projects on the needles.

Note: I finished this one by the skin of my teeth! I have to stop making the top of my socks so long!
I think I am in a color rut:
This is the Snicket Socks pattern in Blue Moon Fiber Arts Lightweight in Red Clover. At the rate I am going, I may finish two more pair before the end of the month!

Note: Love this pattern, but I had maybe 20 feet of yarn left at the end. That rarely happens to me!
So this would be my second pair for Socktoberfest - actually I've finished two more pair, but you'll have to wait for them!
The sun is finally shining this afternoon so now I wish I had waited to take my photos!

Note: Pattern available exclusively for the Alice Kit as part of the Woolgirl Wizard of Oz Sock Club. Van Gogh is one of my favorite artists and his Starry Starry Night one of my favorite paintings. I also love Sophie's Toes sock yarn. If you are me, how do you resist this yarn? Look at how it knit up:

Note: I've been wanting to try this pattern since I first saw it. This yarn has been in the stash for, well, forever. It's an easy knitting yarn and an easy pattern, I would like to try it in a monotone dyed yarn.
