Socks Rock

PS3 Fire socks completed!
Pattern: Yarn Harlot's generic sock pattern from Knitting Rules
Yarn: Trekking XXL

These socks were my quickest knit socks so far. They are a little snug so I don't know if I will keep them or give them away. They have some ladders in a few places so I'm not sure if I am comfortable giving them to anyone. I thought about my mom but the colors may be a bit bright for her.

Monkey socks on the needles. I started the Monkey socks last weekend after finishing the PS3 socks. So far I'm really liking them. This is my first time to knit with Koigu and now I know what all of the fuss is about. I'm definitely going to try and make these socks fit me.

There has been a lot of sock yarn stash enhancement over the last few weeks.

A few FOs

I've got a few FO's to post as well as some stash acquisition.

I finished the Multi-Directional Scarf. It was a quick and fun knit. It works great for a PS3 Earth Element knit...even if I did technically finish it in March.

As for PS3 Fire element, I am still working on the socks. I'm actually trying to make these socks match so we'll see how that works out for me. The first one is finished and I cast on and finished the ribbing on the second sock tonight at MisKnits knit night. I've been going to knit night for a few weeks now and I'm really enjoying it. For the last year or so I have just been knitting at home by myself. I love the company and am having a lot of fun seeing what other people are knitting and getting to have "knitspeak" and talk about Ravelry. Of course that also means I've been buying more yarn...but we just don't mention that to DH!

I also purchased the new Yarn Harlot book and I love it. I'm reading it slowly so I can prolong the enjoyment. I also bought some new sock yarn at MisKnits, Happy Feet.
