Friday FO! (Well, it was Friday, now it's Saturday)

In case anyone was wondering, that was the infamous sock basket that was beneath Wednesday's FO.  (That's the basket the family gets to wade through for a pair of hand knit socks to bring home!)  The basket now has only half a dozen pair left in it.

I worked my way through 25 pair this year.  I performed an airing and a culling of the stash earlier this month so I've been making the effort to work some of the other yarns into my project list.  I used a fat and cushy merino/cashmere blend to make up a cabled stole.  This baby is warm.  I give you the Turnaround Stole by Lily Chin:

Pattern:  Turnaround Stole by Lily M. Chin   Yarn: Filatura Di Crosa Tibet Color:  Brown  Needles:  US 10 - 6.0 mm  Started:  November 6, 2010 Completed:  November 19, 2010

Note:   Warm and heavy and will be my new winter warm-up!

I Don't Blame You...

if you've given up on reading my blog.  I'm like one of those bad friends that always promises to call, and then doesn't.
However, I can deliver on my FO promise.  

Snicket Socks!

Pattern:  Snicket Socks (free download at Ravelry) by Sabine Riefler   Yarn: 
Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks that Rock Lightweight  Color: Red Clover  Needles:  US 1 1/2 - 2.5 mm   Started:  October 25, 2010 Completed:  November 1, 2010

Note:   Love how this pattern turned out!  Once I got through the leg of the first sock, the pattern was engraved in my brain and it just flew along!  The color of this STR is just gorgeous - so rich and sunny.

I am ready for the big turkey cookathon tomorrow.  At this point, I am just eagerly anticipating the arrival of my college boy!  It's been so long since we've seen him, I'm just hoping the weather doesn't throw a monkey wrench into the works.

Club Stash

This is from the Oz Sock Club through WoolgirlPaca-Peds in the Scarecrow color.  It's got a really nice hand, I'm just not sure about the color.

This is from the Badass Woman's Sock Yarn Club from Kitchen Sink Dyeworks.  The colors are great - I am not wild about her yarn base.  She is donating to the cause of each woman that is featured.  I have one more month of this club.  I'm very torn.

Aaaaaand, I did two months of the Hazel Knits Sock Yarn Club because her solid colors are gorgeous!  It's a good thing I've knit over 25 pairs of socks this year, and I've managed to de-stash about a dozen skeins from my Ravelry Trade/Sell Stash page in the last month.  

Today I am dumping out the stash to get it all organized, and make sure it's all on my Ravelry page, and perhaps move a few skeins over into the destash page!

Also, why didn't anyone tell me that Bloglines was back?
