it has been a while since I posted any pics / FOs so here are a couple of things I've been doing while absent. I also made an Irish Hiking Scarf for my boss for Christmas which I need to get pics of. Once I have them I'll add em here too =D

Oops found another kitty pic I forgot to post =D

Edit: Thanks Sabrina! =D I was pleased with how the second pair turned out. I was so glad they matched. The current pair I'm working on will not match at all - it would be next to impossible to match them. I've been working with Regia sock yarn and loving it. Soon I'll try some Opal!

Isn't it a great feeling to match the sock stripes! Congrats!

Everything looks great! I'm impressed on your ability to get the rainbow colored stripes to match up.

Very very cute kitty!

What is the name of the yarn you used for the second pair?

The specs came from Vision Express - they are called Coco Rose from Chinese Culture. The colour is Black Rose (colour 2) they also come in a lime green. I loved the pink so I went with that ;)

What is the name of the yarn you used for the second pair?

Both lots of sock yarn are by Regia. The rainbow ones I think they are:

2 x 50g 4 ply Supersoft Sock wool yarn

shade - 5047 - PARROT RINGEL COLOUR.

75% Pure new Wool, 25% Polyamide

I got the yarn from Ebay. The first pair of socks I completed were made with Lorna's Laces in Desert Flower colour. I love working with the Regia. The first pair of socks I still have not completed, were put together with Regia mini ringel in a lovely blues / blacks shades.

I've not yet worked with Opal but I'm planning on that soon. I also have some Lana Grossa to use (see the yarn porn ;) ) I also have two balls of light blues in Regia silk. They will have to be toe up as they aren't full balls and I got them from ebay so theres not telling how much is actually in them. I've never done toe up socks so this will be a total experiment!

Glad you all like the socks and the glasses =D - still have to post the scarf pic and the pic of the socks I'm working on at the moment.

I also took delivery of a Go Knit pouch - man that thing is suhhhhhweeeet!

Annnd Debbie! DO IT! Honestly learning socks on two circs has been a revelation for me. I was a bit grumpy about DPNS because it was slow and clunky and I had ladders. Then I learned the two circs method and it has revolutionised my knitting. I actually feel like I can take on a project, start it and know that it will be finished. I don't feel grumpy because I can't knit due to many things ongoing in the life at the moment.

I highly recommend socks. I have a sleeved poncho I want to knit - I started it (cast on did 5 rows) but I can't get the time to sit down quietly and concentrate on it (it needs some "me" time to do it till I memorise the repeats). But with socks, wow its so easy.

The go knit pouch is fantastic too - I can clip it to my wrist and wander about knitting wherever I go. It is easy to shove the knitting back into the pouch when I need to and easy to whip it out when I like too.

So yeah DOOOO IT! Get knitting socks on circs =D
