so not a sock a day....






My second pair of magic loop socks. Diamante pattern. I finished the first pair of Cherry Tree Hill socks pictured, will post that photo soon. I have one more skein of the Cherry Tree Hill sock yarn in the stash (and all three of the top Sockotta skeins to finish, though I have started one sock) and 10 skeins to try my hand at dyeing, gotta buy the dye and all the materials to get going on that (thrift store pots and bowls and utensils), I'm guessing that'll be sometime after Christmas. I did have every intention of knitting up several socks for Christmas gifts. But, one art project after another kept me from getting much knitting time in. Now, I'm hoping for two finished pairs. These and one from the blue tone skein remaining in this shot.
This time the Magic Loop method is getting its true test. The reason I wanted to learn Magic Loop (specifically toe-up Magic Loop) - to get the most out of the yarn, to knit and knit until I run out of yarn. Very different from the previously shown Superwoman socks, random yarn remains. Someday said random yarn will become: Pembrokeshire Pathways Socks, I have about 5 inches started on these in the blue. So, that's my sock progress. Stay tuned for further adventures in felted bags, felted bowls, and ipod cozies.

I'm on my second Diamante sock and really love the pattern. And the fact that it's toe up Magic Loop! My favorite! Great colors on your socks!

I do have a Japanese maple and we love it! Of course, now it is bare - in the cold northeast it seems to lose all of its leaves in one day.
