I had a stroke of luck this past Tuesday evening. I don't usually get on the computer after I sit down to watch TV for the night. But Tuesday, after I was done with TV (a little after 10 p.m.), I decided to get on the computer. Since I knew it was Wollmeise sneak-up week at The Loopy Ewe, I had the page already up in my browser. Imagine my surprise when I refreshed and saw that there were actual items in there. I quickly added yarns to my cart. Two colors that I had been coveting forever and one additional color. I made it all the way through checkout without any problems. Today, my yarns arrived!!

Poison No. 5, Zenzi, and Miss May

Aunt Petunia

I finished these one day last week. (I know, bad blogger for taking so long to post about them.)

Petunia Dursley Double Eyelet Socks
Pattern:Petunia Dursley's Double Eyelet Socks
Yarn: Socks that Rock lightweight in goody goody (This was the July sock club colorway.)

These were another fun and easy knit. It was a great take-along project. I worked on these at a local craft/art show and in the car on our way to Hershey Park.

Socks - On and Off the Needles

Spring Forward Socks
These were finished over a week ago and clearly I forgot to blog about them. The pattern is Spring Forward and the yarn is Socks That Rock lightweight in the colorway Blarney Stone. The color is a little busy for the pattern, but I like them anyway!

Pretty in Pink
One down, one to go. These are also being knit in Socks that Rock lightweight. The pattern is Pretty in Pink (Rav link) by Monica J. The colorway is Mist. I'm loving this pattern.

Just getting started. The pattern: Petunia Dursley's Double Eyelet Socks. The yarn is Socks that Rock lightweight (yes, I'm on an STR kick right now). This is the July sock club colorway, goody goody.
