Jitterbug Jitterbug. . .

I started 3 pairs of socks this past week. I'm only showing you one of them because I still have to unpack the other 2. I already showed you the "Sex Kitten" ones in my previous post. Below are my Jitterbug ones I've been working on. The mountain color socks went with me the first time I saw Harry Potter and these Jitterbug ones went the other 2 times I saw it. they may accompany me again to another showing tonight. =P You can also see my new sock blockers. I chose the Labrador Retriever for the top of the blockers. I LOVE them!!!! I am sooo glad they finally came! I bought them off eBay. The makers make them for you when you order them. This means they aren't sitting around collecting dust. It's a great investment. =)

Here is a pair of footsies I started about 2 weeks ago. I finally started working on them again. The yarn is from my normal non-sock stash. I'd been wanting to try the pattern. It's the "Cable Footies" from One Skein. Easy pattern & pretty quick to knit. I hate the colour I'm using. These will probably be a Christmas gift or something. Both of these pairs will count for Summer of Socks.

I have also added a bunch of new colours of sock yarn to my Etsy Shop. Go and have a look. =)

You probably know which one is my fav. dyes of yours: Narcissa. But, isn't she supposed to be a dark colorway.

It seems like you have plenty enough time of your hand now for the artsy industry...

I have only recently started knitting socks----- if I had started as early as you did---- well let's just say that when you get to be a finely aged old broad there is no telling what will come off your needles! Good on ya!
