FO Friday ~ Socks on a Plane

The last two mornings have begun with crisp temperatures and beautiful sunrises.


Skies filled with pinks, golds, oranges and blues — a beautiful way to start the day.

And for FO Friday . . .



Pattern  ::  Socks on a Plane
Yarn  ::  Cascade Heritage Paints in Indian Summer
Needles  ::  US 1.5 (2.5 mm) circulars

These were finished over the past weekend and ~J’s~ already worn them.  I knit these over 60 stitches instead of my usual 64 and the fit is nice and snug.  Such a nice pattern and yarn, these socks just seemed to fly off the needles.  This is pair #2 for the YOSS challenge.

Happy Friday and enjoy your weekend!

Happy Wednesday! 

Mother Nature has decided to make up for all the warm winter days with a blast of cold and snow.  And it’s beautiful!

This little Junco was the first to discover a piece of bread the squirrels knocked from the deck railing.

On the needles . . .


. . . is the second pair of socks for the YOSS (Year of Stash Socks) challenge.  The pattern is Socks on a Plane and the yarn is Cascade Heritage Paints.  I love both the pattern and the yarn.  Knitting these on separate needles, side-by-side, from one ball of yarn is a new challenge that involves a bit of tangling, but still manageable.


I’ve made a mistake somewhere in the last three cables (cables are maybe not best for ER knitting).  If the socks were for me I’d just push ahead, but these are for ~J~ so I’ll try to sort it out.

On the bookshelf . . .  Just finished the cozy mystery, with a little skimming at the end.  Next up will be The Seafront Tearoom by Vanessa Greene.

On the wheel . . . Poor little Ladybug is being so neglected.  There just aren’t enough hours in the days lately.

I’m going to use this snow day to fix a cup of cocoa, catch up on blog reading and fix the cables on ~J’s~ socks.  Enjoy your day!
