The first knitting FO of 2011 is off the needles. It's a pair of socks that I've been dragging along since 2009.
Pattern: Elongated Corded Ribs from Sensational Knitted Socks by Charlene Schurch
Yarn: Schachenmayr nomotta Regia Bamboo Color Passion
Needles: 1 US dpn's
Size: Women's 10
Started: May 26, 2009 Finished: January 8, 2011
I'm embarking on a serious stash reduction this year. To that end I've been going through the stash to sort out what I would like to make this year in addition to the project kits I've already created. I really liked the idea of a personal sock club so I created one.
There are 11 bags because 1 pair is already on the needles. It's a stealth project so the only thing I'll reveal is the yarn.
I purchased this lovely skein at SAFF 2010 from Gale's Art. The color is Moldy Pumpkin and so far I'm loving the way this is knitting up.
Wonder of wonders tomorrow is a snow day. I can't believe that we are forecast to have more truly wintry weather. Everything is pretty much shut down with all the closings. I'm hoping that the ice they're predicting later on tomorrow isn't too bad so that we won't lose power. It is going to be great to have another knitting day.
To everyone in the path of the storm stay safe and stay warm.
