Valentine Socks

I know its a little early for Valentine’s Day, but I think these socks are just perfect for the holiday

PIc 016

Pattern:  Baby Cable Rib, Sensational Knitted Socks
Yarn:  Vesper Sock Yarn, Strange Little Mama colorway
Started:  12/24/06
Finished:  1/19/06

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!

    Nice markers. I’m glad that they’re not jump ring markers. The won’t catch on anything while you work. If you want more, I’ll make you some!
