Sockapalooza - and so it continues...

Well I was just having a little look around the sockapalooza site and saw that there are still people who didn't get any socks. So I have volunteered to be a sock saviour. This will be the 3rd pair I've done for this...

Anyway, I'm using some Natural Dye Studio yarn that I've had in my stash for quite some time. I think the colourway is Atlantic Moon and that it is BFL 4ply.

The sock is a simple basket weave pattern from Sensational Knitted Socks

I'm still alive

Here is my second pair of "killer" socks. Started by my first victim sockmice and finished and shot through the heart of TalesfromthePlain.

Still have absolutely no idea who my own assassin is so could be murdered by socks at any moment..... oo-er!

Panic over!

Blimey... got home from work today to find a 'form left' card and went across the street to collect what I fully expected to be my parcel of death. But it wasn't! Apparantly, it was a large parcel for another house and the courier had made a mistake! Phew....

Watch out my next victim!

I am a killer!

Well... I've finished and the above deadly weapons are on their way...

The battle begins...

Well I have finished the first sock and have been psyching out my 'victim' (in a nice and friendly way of course - it will almost be a shame to kill her.....almost!!!)

Sock Madness

I just can't help myself when it comes to socks. I thoroughly enjoyed Sockapalooza and am now signed up for sock wars!

The Sock Wars battle commences on Saturday and I have ordered my DPNs and bought my yarn. There's a slight problem with the postal strike but the lovely people at Web of Wool are going to courier my needles to me so that I will be fully armed and ready for a damn good scrap!!

Also joined the Sockamania club and am just starting the October sock pattern so will post a pic when I have got going with them.


I have ventured into the world of colour knitting my friends! I recently bought some fabulous Elizabeth Zimmerman books and she reckons colour knitting is easy so I decided to give it go! Here are my simple hats done in a really easy alternative stitch pattern and also done in the round so no seams (this I like)!

Here they are again being modelled beautifully by my girls!
