OTN Sock Update 2

Here are my Coriolis Socks. It is not easy to see, but the coriolis is the line that goes up the sock.

These are the beginning of my Country Fall Sock Blank.

My first sock blank is almost done.

Sock Blockers

I received my sock blockers today in the mail. I have a busy week planned, but hope to get better pictures of all of my socks. The blockers should help show off socks a lot better.

Dish Cloth

Here are a couple of pictures of a Dish Cloth I gave as a Gift to my State Contact at the Assembly I went to in DC. This is an original design. I started with using the Multi-color only (Too much color). I tried to use the Mulit-Color in the stitch definition (Too complicated). I finally took it to DC, and knit the Border, then went to inside and outside of the mulit-colored yarn, and knit the inner color. Blocking in warn water really helped the project. The yarn is Berroco Comfort DK.

This is a good picture of the colors.

This is a better picture of the stitch definition.

Thanks to littlecottonrabbits for use of your online Alphabet.

Sock Blank #2

While the ladies in dishcloth_haven were chatting about food, I came home and cooked up some fiber dye. My first blank does not have a color name. The second blank does.

Country Fall

The colors are Red (The same as from Blank #1), Golden Brown and Dark Brown. These are colors I think about during the fall. Here at home, we usually get yellows and dried out brown. I do see myself as a Fall/Winter color person.

Thank you to Susan for helping me with the color ideas. She also suggested not creating a standard pattern. I changed color randomly, and the bands are not the same size.

More of my Sock Blank

Here is a picture of my sock blank now. I am knitting a K2P1 ribbing. When you click on the picure, you will be lead to my sock blank album. I took several pictures, but did not find one that really showed off the colors. I also decided I need a sock blocker. I have one on order, and will probably take more pictures of my socks.
