Little Purls of Wisdom

A lot of knittting, and maybe a little wisdom.

So, I told you I knit socks, right? October 30, 2008

Yes, lots and lots of socks. I’ve been lazy lately, so I haven’t been keeping up with the pictures, but I have some now! I really need to work on things other than socks, but Christmas is coming up, so I need to prepare. Okay, here they are.

Those are the Vinnland Socks that I love. The yarn is UrbanGypz. I can’t remember the colorway, but I bought it over the summer when I worked at a yarn store. So dangerous, but at least I have some really pretty yarn!

Spring Forward pattern from Knitty. The yarn is Rio de la Plata and a really pretty, golden color. I love these things. This pair and the Vinnland socks are definitely for me. I don’t care that it’s close to Christmas, I’m not sharing. I love them too much.

My normal top-down sock pattern with heel flap. The yarn is Noro Kutyon sock and I love it. These are for someone, but I’m not telling who.

Also the normal top-down pattern, this time in Colinette Jitterbug. The color is Lapis, I think. These are also for someone, but I honestly don’t know who yet.

Again, normal top-down sock. The yarn is UrbanGypz in Hello Sunshine! These are a present.

And again, the normal yop-down sock. These are just at the top of the first sock, so that’s exciting. I bought this yarn in London last fall, and I can’t remember the company or the color, but they’re still really nice and I love the colors. These, like most of the others, are a present.

Those are all the pictures I have for now. I’ll keep knitting and post another update soon. In the meantime, go watch the new House! I’m in love with that show (of course). Did I mention that I bought season 3 a couple months ago? Almost there!

Happy knitting!


Socks… October 27, 2008

I don’t have any new pictures at the moment, but trust me. I’m knitting a lot of socks. It’s getting a little ridiculous. I need to finish things, but I’ve been having a  pretty bad case of startitis for a while now. The only good thing about that is that I’m starting Christmas presents, so hopefully they’ll be done on time. I’ll post pictures when I finish some things.

In other news, I’ve found a TV show that I love. It’s called “Fourtysomething”. It came out in 2003 in the UK, but it was directed by, and starred Hugh Laurie, so of course it’s wonderful. I was laughing hysterically the first time I watched it, so go rent the DVDs and watch it.

Now I’m off to do homework and avoid the rain. It figures that it starts to rain not long before I have to leave for a meeting… Happy knitting!
