I'm in love...

I'm in love...
What's that loveliness I spy? No, not the machine. I love my machine, but the exciting toy is my new walking foot.
I'm in love...
*sigh* How did I ever live without you? xxoooxxx
Just don't tell my husband...

Sockapalooza, the Second


My beautiful Sockapalooza socks have arrived!

Gina made me Baudelaire socks from Knitty out of Cherry Tree Hill Supersock in the blues/greens colorway. Yummy!
Thank you, Gina!!

And, I just found out today that my pal received her Pomatomuses (Pomatomi?).
All is well with the world.

Well, all except Bloglines. If you subscribe to my blog's feed through bloglines, please check to make sure you're still subscribed. I pushed some button today that made everybody disappear. Although, without the little pokes Bloglines gives me, I probably would never make it back here. Hmm.

Oh, and speaking of all being well with the world... Lolly made it through the earthquake and out of Peru safely!

Have a Fiberlicious weekend.

Sockapalooza Pomatomus
Not a moment too soon, the Sockapalooza socks are finished.

Pattern: Pomatomus by Cookie A.
Yarn: Artyarns Ultramerino 4 in color 110. Less than 2 skeins.
Needles: Size 2 Clover bamboo dpns
Mods: Since my pal asked for shorter socks, I did only two repeats of the leg pattern.

Sockapalooza Pomatomus

I love the color of these socks, and I am a huge fan of the pattern. It's almost sad to send them away.
I'm going to gush about this yarn for a moment. I made my first pair of socks out of this yarn, so you might call me biased. It's springy and shiny and oh so gorgeous. The colors are super saturated and it's all around fiberlicious!
It's not the cheapest sock yarn around, but if you are looking to treat your feet (har), give it a shot!

Now, my proudest achievement is actually doing the Kitchener stitch correctly for once. I have faked it, gotten around it, and now finally managed it! All I needed was a little help from and I did it no problem. I feel invincible!

Have a great Thursday everyone!
