Pumpkin Watch '06
And for Chris, who loves those pumpkin-flesh eating microbes, here's a close-up of a particularly funky spot.
Bill says he's going to bury it in the flower bed as fertilizer. We'll see if and when that happens! Do you think we'll get any pumpkin plants if we bury a whole pumpkin?
I got a nice little box in the mail from Knit Picks yesterday, including a bunch of color cards. Some of those sock yarns are just screaming "buy me, Chrissy, buy me!"
This is what I worked on much of the weekend:
These are all of my Masters Level I swatches except one. I'm still working on the last one, which is two colors. Now to get them blocked and get all of the questions written up... Maybe by the end of the month? Or maybe not - this knit-along is keeping me VERY busy.
And speaking of the knit-along, here are your Monday sock updates!
Renata finished a pair of Socks That Rock Jaywalkers. And wouldn't you know, she was having a little contest w/ STR as a prize, and I tied for the win! Yahoo! Go check them out.
Christy has a lovely pair of grey Lichen Ribbed Socks from NB's Knitting Vintage Socks, along with some really cute kiddo pics. Her 10 month-old has some TEETH! Yowza! Owen is just a slow toother-outer, I guess.
Anonymous commenter finished a pair of Pomatomuses (or would it be Pomatomi), but since I don't know who you are, I can't give you credit! Please e-mail me!!!
Lauren has some lovely Embossed Leaves socks - her second pair of socks ever! Nice job! She also got herself a new spinning wheel...I am drooling!
Susan finished up a funky pair of Garter Rib Socks. I am totally craving that colorway - Knit Picks Sock Memories Hawaii!
Siri knit up some spotty socks for her boys along with some gorgeous Louet Opal Gems socks of her own design. They look so incredibly comfy!
Silvia finished her funky Kool-aid dyed socks. She already finished her January socks, so these are just for brownie points! And no, you don't get anything for brownie points other than some extra knit-along love...
Karon is a new knit-alonger who has one Embossed Leaf sock done. She signed up too late for a J, but go check out her lovely sock and blog anyway!
Good socking, people!
