Very cold and rainy day here 🌧☔️so I made myself a cup of hot tea ☕️ (sweet almond green) from David’s Tea 💕.
Socks 🧦 of the day for #showoffyourwoollysocks is a pair of vanilla socks I knit in 2016 & the yarn brand is called Grundl hot socks stripes with contrasting heels and toes. Needed some brightness today!! Hope you’re warm wherever you are and your #handknits are keeping you warm too!!
All the cosy! 💜💙 ☕️ 💙💜
I haven’t made socks for a while, mostly because I was never super happy with how they turned out - but then I realised it was because I keep trying to make them in DK or heavier. I’ve had these lovely fingering wright minis from @bigfootfibers staring at me for about a year just begging to be made into something, so when Emily from @thebluemouse_ put out a call for testers for her fingering weight #glymursocks I figured I’d give it a shot 😄. I discovered last night that figuring out how to turn a heel when you’re making them two at a time is.... interesting 😝. But it’s all good now, on the home stretch!
Pattern: Glymur socks from @thebluemouse_, out on the 17th.
Yarn: Awesome Sock minis in It’s Fall Y’all from @bigfootfibers
It's the fifteenth...and I can't remember where I put my chart for the Dimensions SAL! While I try to figure out which other project I tucked it in with, I'm turning the second heel on my Salt and Pepper socks. @x_amytiville_x started stitching at midnight and my own plan was to put in my first stitches before the sun was up.
If you've got a Dimensions kit you want to work on, please join us! I promise to catch up soon.
I think the sock kits where a hit! I could definitely see doing some for each season. I probably won’t be doing any winter ones this year though, since I’m kinda out of time! 🧦🍂
🏷 Theres one Last Harvest Sock Kit left on Cloudland and a few on Hearth if you’re interested in snagging one. 🌿 #yarnandthymefibers
Took a brisk 4.6 mile walk around the lake to pick up my yarn at the post office, and planning to cast on shortly. Slack Tide Socks KAL, hosted by @mockingbirdfiberco starts today! Colorway: Papa was a Rollin’ Stone with Black Leather Jacket on Rustic Sock. #slacktidesockskal#mockingbirdfiberco#lostandfawned#sockknitter
How soon do you start your Christmas shopping? 3 months in advance? Only after Thanksgiving? Maybe...2 weeks before Christmas (bless Amazon Prime 2-Day Shipping)! .
If you are still looking for some inspiration that you can knit yourself, I’ve compounded another roundup of patterns that can easily be knit before the holidays are upon us. Included are these stunning #lacydayfingerlessmitts by @pluckypigeonknits, which I’ve been verifiably obsessed with for some time. Just click on the link in my bio to see them all! 💞🎁🧶
Yesterday’s happy mail! 🧦🧦

Awkward Sock Pose ✨
My sock knitting this year has been totally lacking! Ok, ok...it sucked, is more like it. I started this pair in February. FEBRUARY!! 😳😩 I haven’t finished any socks nor have I cast on any new ones. 👎 I think I lost my sock knitting mojo. 🤷🏻♀️
