Plans, I like to have plans.

Socktober is here! (I know, I’m like 2 weeks late to this party. Better late than never right?) At the end of last Socktober I ordered this yarn from Simply Socks Yarn Co. this lovely hank of Fleece Artist basic merino sock in the Autumn colorway. Its been sitting in my stash waiting.

I wanted planning to knit a pair of lacy leaf socks. Well… I tried lacy leaf socks, it didn’t work. See
for posterity

I frogged that baby and started this
Ironwood socks

based off of Craftoholics Mata Hari socks. Because I’m smart as a whip these days, my eyelets swirl backwards instead of forwards. (like that made any sense!) The heel cup on this sock makes me very happy

Its so perdy! I love happy heel cups. The heel cups on my Rainbow socks make me very happy too.

This socktober I also want to knit a pair of Christmas socks with this yarn. I’m thinking the Undulating rib socks from Favorite socks. I love to have socks to wear for different Holidays, I’m nerdy like that! Maybe start Dad’s Christmas socks too. I can’t remember is Socktober 2 months or one?

Rhinebeck’s in one week 6 days, Mom and I will be going again this year. Let me know if your going to be there! Mom emailed me this podcast. Mom says she remembers seeing people with cameras. I don’t! All I saw was wool, all that wooly, happy, lovely yarn.  Mom is wearing a yellow jacket and I’m wearing a white sweater and blue vest. I can’t wait!  6 more days!!

*Kailey slept so well last night! For 6 hours straight! I’m so happy!! I’m overusing exclamation points!!!

  1. I LOVE love love those socks. The colors are fantastic, and I really like the pattern you picked. I like how the colors pool much more than on the first attempt 🙂

    I’m glad Kailey is feeling better. I can’t believe how big she is getting – all those teeth!

  2. I love those Autumn socks perfect for Socktober which is just this month I believe.

    How great that Kailey slept well!

    Hope to see you in Rhinebeck. I’ll be there with the same girls I was with last year. I can’t wait!
