Spin the Bin Progress

I am making progress on my Spin The Bin challenge.   The pink and gold yarn was the Treasure Goddess batt.  I have finished the singles of the Teals Merino/Tencel blend.  I hope to get them plied sometime this week. The other two bobbins are Falkland from Fat Cat Knits in Ruby Truffle.  It was part of a mixed blessing club last year.  I have one more bobbin of that to finish before I ply.

World's Worst Blogger

 Not much blogging MOJO, but I have been knitting.  These are my February Desert Vista Dyeworks socks. I used Baa Baa Black Sheep and it is a plain vanilla sock.
These are the ones I knit for January.  The colorway is A Colorful Celebration.  These are also vanilla socks with a little bit of ribbing on the sides.

I have my color for next month picked out.

Just Keep Knitting, Just Keep Knitting

I am in the black hole of knitting but I must continue because the baby will be here soon.  The pattern is the Garter Ridge Baby Blanket.  The yarn is Hobby Lobby I Love This Yarn in Tropical Pink.

Another Sock in Progress

These are socks I started while I waited for the new year so I could start my Colorful Celebration socks.   I am doing them toe up as well.  The yarn is Ella Rae Lace Merino.  I just added a little ribbing to the David's Toe Up Cookbook pattern.  I have started the second sock and hope to have them done by the end of January.

An Old Finished Object

These are my Red Raider socks that I finished in October.  They are Red Raider socks because these colors are our school colors and the Red Raider is our mascot.  I like to wear them on game days when I remember.
This is one of the two pairs of socks I currently have on the needles.  The yarn is Desert Vista Dyeworks in A Colorful Celebration.   I am using my Vanilla sock recipe but doing them toe up.

1. Ten Tiny Breaths by K. A. Tucker

2. One Tiny Lie by K. A. Tucker

3. Four Seconds to Lose by K. A. Tucker

5. The Mouse with the Question Mark Tail by Richard Peck

6. Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls
