Socks, socks everywhere!

My Blue Moon "Socks That Rock Club" yarn & pattern is here! I'm not sure I'm going to like this sock ... but I joined the club to learn new skills and patterns using some beautiful yarn. So be it ... I'll be knitting "Hippy Crunchy" [yucky name] ... It looks like a slouchy sock too but I may end out loving it anyway, LOL! M-m-m-m, maybe.

Check it out by clicking on the pictures & getting a close look ...

The colorway is "Peaseblossom" and looks even nicer in person!
And included in this package is a temporary tatoo. I just need a special reason or place to wear it. Maybe I'll save it for September 24 and the Boston Knit-Out & Crochet Too 2006. Yah, that's it!

Then there are the socks in progress ...Tropicana and the Fetzenmuster-sock ... of which I'm on my 2nd sock and so I'm

moving right along kids ...

Also, I've got an added activity going on behind the scenes ... reading books ... mysteries ... with knitting in 'em! [why not?] And so I report that my recent read was Knit One, Kill Two by Maggie Sefton. It's the first of 3 books, with one not yet published. Needled to Death by Maggie Sefton is the next one I'm going to read and if it's anything like the first, I'm going to enjoy it. Of the 3 books in the back of the picture, "Knit One, Kill Two" was my favorite ... altho I've enjoyed them all. Well the two in front, I have yet to read ... A Good Yarn by Debbie Macomber is one of them. Remember my friend Sammie sent me that one!

So I leave you with this .... My Tarot card ...

You Are The Sun

You represent the best of life - vitality, success, and the truth.
You tend to have a strong, centered, balanced personality.
Inspiration and discovery are your fortes. You are very mentally strong.
A talented mind, you tend to excel at math, philosophy, and music.

Your fortune:

As well as you have done in the past, the future is going to be filled with more success.
A new creative project is coming your way. Feed it, and it will grow into something huge.
Great riches, recognition, prosperity, or happiness is coming your way.
And it's possible that a fantastic vacation, or a new baby, is coming sooner than you think.
What Tarot Card Are You?

[That last one BETTER be a fantastic VACATION headed my way!]

OMG! Tropicana looks awesome! I can't wait to see the hippy crunch coming together...sounds intriguing ;0)

The STR yarn is beautiful. Do you really dislike the pattern, or just the "hippie" name and marketing they have done for it? Weird how accurate that Tarot card thing is when all they ask for is your name! I am Strength!

Happy Crunchy??? What a weird name for a sock! Hope you end up liking the pattern and result. The yarn is gorgeous though!

Your other socks are looking great too! I have been working on the set for the woman at work and haven't been doing any socks lately...though have a few "in progress".

That sock yarn is gorgeous. :) Enjoy! :)

I have those knitting mystery novels on my amazon wishlist. Let me know if they're any good. :)

Awwww, great - what an amazing yarn you got, I just love these colors and can't wait to see them knit up in that pattern you'll be using!
Your socks are coming along beautifully too, especially the Fetzenmuster ones, they're looking better and better everytime you post a pic of them!
I'm also a mystery-die-hard-fan, so I was very interested hearing about Maggie Sefton - haven't heard of her before, but mixing knitting and mysteries sure sounds very appealing to me! Will have to check Amazon.com for it - thanks for telling us about these books!
