Yarn: Hand dyed sock blank from Knit Picks
Needles: Size 3.0 mm 40 inch Addi Turbos
Started: January 7, 2009
Finished: February 7, 2009
Thoughts: This is a very interesting technique. When I first started the socks, I just did what the book told me and everything was fine, but it took a while before I figured out what was really going on and how to keep the yarn from tangling. I wish I had a photo to show this, but the sock blank and working socks fit so well into the Box Bag from JessaLu, it was like it was just meant to specially hold this project. There were a few areas of the pattern around the heel turning/gusset parts where I didn’t really follow the pattern. I never checked to see if there was any errata, but there may well be, or it could have just been me. The best part of these socks is NO SECOND SOCK SYNDROME!!!!!
Frog It or Finish It: I have taken something out of hibernation. I don’t think it will be done by Friday but I’m well on my way!
Phat Fiber: I’m going to be participating in the March Box of Phat Fiber. This sounds like a very interesting marketing concept. If you haven’t heard of it yet, you can visit it on Ravelry, Etsy, or it’s Blog. So far I have dyed the fiber I’m going to send. I still have to package it and make all the graphics! I have to get moving, but what a really cool concept to get your product samples out to other fiber addicts. I’m very excited, so if you don’t see me around here to much it is because I’ve been eaten alive by the monster called Photoshop…
