One Maple Leaf sock finished!

One Maple Leaf Sock finished....I love the Cherry Tree Hill Sock Yarn! Used a garter stitch short row heel, and grafted the toe. Off to start the second sock before second sock syndrome hits....

Succeeded at Sixth Sense

Here they are - another pair of Sixth Sense socks - modified from the original pattern with a short row heel and non - garter stitch toe. They were made on #2 dpn's with Calzetteria sock yarn. My son loves them - they are very comfortable and I hope to steal, er...borrow them them from him occasionally.

Back to work on the Maple Leaf Socks...they are taking longer than I'd hoped, but a fun pattern to knit. I'm using #1 dpn's and Cherry Hill sock yarn. Plan to start a pair of Hedera socks soon, too.

New Yarn...more stash...

Cherry Tree Hill yarn just BEGGING to be made into Maple leaf socks...Austermann with aloe begging to be Sixth Sense socks....Trekking XXL for my much yarn, so little time. Crafty Hands in Bowling Green, KY, is a GREAT shop with friendly staff and lots of sock yarn. Can't wait to visit there again.

Here's the modified Sixth Sense socks I'm working on...didn't do the garter stitch heel and toe on these, just a regular short row heel and stockinette toe.

Now, back to laundry and all the other stuff Mom's do....
