Fun, Fast, Warm, and Comfy

The Mystery Socks are done.....I had forgotten how quickly worsted weight socks go!

Pattern: Susan's Mystery Socks
(the name will be revealed soon....)
edit: Horcrux Socks
Yarn: Almost 2 50 gm skeins of Knit Picks Wool of the Andes in Cranberry
Needles: 2 socks on 1 US #5 40" circular Addi Turbo
Gauge: 5 1/2 stitches/inch (40 stitches circumference)

Susan gave out a section of the pattern every few days on her blog with detailed instructions and photos. I followed along, knitting both socks together, and finished with her on Friday. What a fun sock knitalong!
I am wearing these socks as I write this and they are so warm and comfortable AND pretty too!

and on my VERY wide feet....

I also finished my square for the Blanket of Hope and sent it off to Rebekah, who is combining all the squares to make a blanket for Sonya's husband, Kevin. As I was knitting this, I kept thinking how pretty a whole blanket would be in this stitch with this yarn! ( Mountain Colors Bearfoot stranded with fingering cranberry wool in the slip-stitch honeycomb pattern from Barbara Walker's A Treasury of Knitting Patterns)

I have realized that I am just unable to throw yarn out.....How little is too little to keep?

4 grams

9 grams

In order to really use it all up, I basically have to run out of yarn while knitting or cut it very close...otherwise it stays - I can't throw it out.

Starting today it is All Tweed Sweater All the Time..... I want this done while it is still cold enough to wear it!
