so this is what i have been knitting

trying to think how many socks i have knitted...five pairs that i recently knitted are not in this post...guess i have been nuts knitting??? Because that makes ten pairs or so since the end of march...plus a couple of purses, two pairs of baby booties and a baby hat which i am GOING to finish today before the baby outgrows it!

And OH NO I have enough yarn for 18 more pairs...NOT buying another scrap of sock yarn for quite a while...I was going to buy that yummy Cherry Tree hill yarn in all its color ways but i think i will have to rethink that!


This is the newest pair...still have enough yarn to knit another pair like this ...i knitted the toe and heel out of red yarn i still have another skein of it......these are for my sils birthday present..she knits but she doesnt think she can knit socks...but she knits Christmas stockings...i keep telling her its the same thing just smaller...Jabo yarn....arent they too cute...look very scandinavian...I do like doing the toe and heel in a different color...

This is a pair for a friends birthday...Trekking yarn that has been toughened up with wooly nylon serger thread and the toes and heels are double so she cant rip them out...I hope these last unlike the last pair ...but they did not have any nylon in them to make them tougher...

this was a skein I bought just so i coudl have something to knit...and i didnt care for it very much but i really do like the heathery browns now...think they are quite a fabulous color now...who said browns cant be gorgeous?

Intarsia purse...finished it hmm a month or more ago...still not used it...think i will keep my knitting in it...its enormous...I have been intending to knit a wool flower to go on it but of course not done that...too busy knitting socks:>

I dont know why i knit or sew purses...never use any of them...and they are cute...guess i should list them on etsy or someplace and sell them! Another thing...i discovered while felting this purse and these slippers...i really DONT like the smell of wet wool! EUWWWWW!!!!

A pair of knitted wool slippers looking for a home...they are too big for me and my arches are too high for them so they are not comfortable...but they are CUTE arent they?...who will the lucky recipient be...trying to trade them with a friend who wants a pair for the yarn she bought to knit a pair....good idea right?? BYTW I WONT be knitting another pair of these...knitting the toes was a royal PAIN! going around the tight curve...

THese are mine...arent they yummy....hand dyed yarn from hmm oh Cherry hill yarn...they have a tiny cable in them a four stitch cable...bytw this color is called Spanish moss...Those vermonters must not have ever seen spanish moss...sinces its a pale grey with hints of purple and green in it...not this yummy color:>
This is a skein of trekking yarn that i bought when i wanted to knit a pair of socks...also bought it in blue....so i decided i had to knit it...not going to accumulate a huge yarn stash like i have cloth and NOT use it..big waste of money...
I counted this morning...i have enough yarn for hmm is it 17 pairs of socks...not buying one more skein till these are gone....I swear that is the truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth...and i am sticking to it!
This is the next pair...tofusie yarn...will be my third pair of socks from it...its light weight...thin socks...with shrimp or crab shell in it...fun colors though! I made a friend who has to wear socks all year round two pairs of these...and she loves them...so this will be my pair....

All nice pieces, and all seemed to be very useful, either for use or as a learning tool. I'll bet you are a very wise knitter by now. peace blogging stranger, i leave your blog in peace.
