Did I tell you....

That I picked up Cat Bordhi's new book yesterday at Purlescence Yarns. I absolutely love it!

My Personal Footprint
And I can finally show you the fabulous heel from my personal footprint socks that Cat taught us at sock camp! These socks are probably my best fitting socks yet and I can't wait to knit more socks with this method!


Seriously?
I'm even thinking of casting on my Sknitches Syncopation yarn in the colorway, Seriously? this week using one Cat's personal footprint patterns. The heel will keep the self-striping going just perfectly!

lacy baktus
Oh, and did I tell you that I forgot how much I love knitting things other than socks with sock yarn? I'm not sure if I really forgot, but wow! I'm loving Madelinetosh Tosh sock knit up as a lacy baktus. I'm over halfway done!

Got socks
And did I tell you we're having a sale on IrishgirlieKnits' sock patterns this week? I didn't? Now I have!

The Socks that Rock Group over on ravelry is wrapping up its Cotty knitalong and I have loved every minute of it!!! To see the gorgeous Cotty socks in STR for the past three months has been incredible!! I was telling my great-aunt Mimi (aka Winnie) today about all the different socks and she still can't believe it! Then I told her there were a few requests for an Uncle Frank and Grandma socks and, oh, the stories kept coming. I love when she gets in the story-telling mood!

The sale is a big thank you thank you to you all for your support with my knitting designs! All my sock patterns will be $4 from today until Sept. 30!

Cotty Cotty (oh, and by the way, the stitch number is just perfect to put into Cat Bordhi's Personal Footprints pattern...see Cheeky Attitude did it here!)

Cool! It looks like the heel on my Let it Be sock. I'll be curious to see how close I got to her version. Neat!

I finally cast on Blackberry Brambles. I found a gorgeous Malabrigo sock colour that is working GREAT with the pattern.

I've been on the look out for that book lately since I've noticed that kitting books show up a bit early in my area. Sadly, said book has yet to show up in my lys or book store.
