Fraggle Friday!

Another busy week...but the school year is almost over! I still work during the summer, but less meetings, reports, etc. I can't wait!

SPOILER ALERT! RSC shipment pictures ahead!

I am pretty excited that I finished my first pair of socks for this year's Rockin' Sock Club! I am head over heels in love with this colorway and can't wait to knit up a pair of Cotty socks in this (yes I will be ordering more!).

Before the pictures, here....let me distract you with this pretty.... I just may be casting on soon!

Those are absolutely beautiful. I'm looking forward to seeing what else you knit from "Pepe", and also what you decide to do with your "Jabberwocky".

They look great, Carrie! My second one is turning out like yours. Thank you for nagging Tina to create it! It's a pretty colorway.

OMG! You already finished the FRAGGLES! Go, You! Love that Jabberwocky (one of my fav colorways!) and am looking forward to knitting up Cotty when I get the chance! Perhaps that lovely Pigeon Roof/Cashmere you hooked me on at SW!

Rani said...

ooh ooh, pretty pretty socks.

That jaberwocky colorway is so rich and dark. I can't wait to see what that turns into on your needles.

Batty said...

Pretty yarn... and pretty socks! How come I want to buy sock yarn every time I visit your blog??? You may not have a knitting problem, but I sure am acquiring one...

Oh, wait, I already had one. Never mind.
