Pattern: Baby Cable Rib, Sensational Knitted Socks
Yarn: Vesper Sock Yarn, Strange Little Mama colorway
I really do like this sock yarn – the cuffs on these socks is about 6 inches – yet I have enough of the yarn left to make one more sock. The colors are great, and yarn is very soft. I have another skein of this in another colorway, and I’m looking forward to using it again (just not right away!).
I ordered stitch markers earlier this week from Beadmakers. They came yesterday, and they are so cute. Karen sent me an email when I ordered these and asked if I wanted a ram and 5 ewes, or just 6 ewes…..but I like the ewes.
I also ordered row markers….aren’t they cute?
Karen included a note in the order – she read my blog and saw that I quit smoking. So she also included these (not smoking is good for the heart, right?) Isn’t that nice?
I can’t wait to use them all – too cute. Up until now, I’ve only had boring stitch markers, and I’ve been jealous when I see other knitters with nice ones. So there you go!
Thanks for all the good wishes about this weekend – we leave in a little bit. I’ve had a nice morning lazing around, knitting on the second sock of the Green Zen yarn, watching a movie (I watched “The Island” – can’t say its a great movie, but I wish I had a clone that would go to work for me!) I mentioned to Larry that I got a comment from KitkatKnit that I should go to the Mannings while we are out that way. Larry immediately said that we should go – so I think we are going to go tomorrow. He really is a good husband – just too nice and always willing to check out yarn stores with me. I am very lucky to have him.
Have a great weekend!
