Much better than last month

Considering my June knitting progress, it's amazing that I was able to knit an entire sock in July. Not a pair, but one sock.

A sock in a month

It's a very fun sock, and I hope to make it a match very soon.

In other sock news, I got this incredible skein of handspun sock yarn in the mail.

A surprise skein of handspun

It was completely unexpected, and guess who spun and sent it? Sara! She said the colors reminded her of my recently finished Wonky Bee quilt. I can't tell you how much I appreciate it, Sara! It's beautiful. Thanks so much for thinking of me. I will definitely have to pick a fun pattern for these, although maybe plain stockinette is best for the handspun. Hmm. I'll let that marinate a while while I decide!

And even though it's not handspun, you've still got a little time to enter the giveaway for some sock yarn and a pattern!

  3. LOL. In July I knit half a doll. But, in my defense, I quit in disgust when I realized the pattern was wonky... Hopefully I buck up and re-knit it soon.

  7. Lovely yarn! The colors are great. Reminds me of Malabrigo's Archangel colorway.

  8. Gorgeous yarn! What about Kai-mei? There's enough of a pattern to be interesting but it shouldn't distract from the handspun.
