Charade socks & some drawstring bags

I don't know how I did it (since I'm the slowest sock knitter ever), but I started and finished a pair of socks in January. I immediately cast on for a second pair, and even though it is proving to be a slower knit (or maybe I've had more distractions), I am in LOVE with the yarn/pattern combo.

This is some Sparky the Sock in Rah Rah, by Spun Right Round. The sock pattern is Sandra Park's Charade. And as you can see, I have a new project bag!

I made a few new ones, again from Jeni's Drawstring Bag pattern. I sent two of these to some favorite friends, and kept one for myself.


  1. that yarn is the bomb. The yarn bomb.

  2. awesome bag and congrats on the socks! have you seen the new add-on tutorial for a zippered divider pocket for the drawstring bag? i really want to try it out.

  3. Yay!!! thank you! I love my bag so much!

  4. Um...those are gonna be some awesome socks!! Very cool coloring! I really want to try sock knitting at some point...Charlotte told me I should try the heavier weight yarn first after I shared my horrible first experience with sock yarn. LOL

  5. Ooh, I like this yarn too. I perceive it as very happy and it looks great knit up in that pattern. I haven't knit any socks in a while... (sjn821 on Rav)

  6. Seriously, quit showing your socks because each one, I want to buy the exact. same. yarn and knit the exact. same. pattern. even though I swore off variegated yarn years ago. I completely agree with you that this combo is a perfect match!!

    And very cool project bags. I think I may love the lion a little too much! ;)
