I am just a gal who loves to knit and spin in my spare time and thought it would be nice to share my projects with everyone.

Deby's Cotton Candy Socks

A while back I posted I was test knitting socks for a girlfriend. Well here they are! Aren't they awesome?? Actually I made two pairs. The first pair I made to send to Deby and I found an unforgiveable mistake on the botton of one of the feet. So I sent her pictures and I made a second pair to send to her. She just recieved them on Monday. I made them out of Patons Kroy Sock Yarn on size 1 needles. If you like this pattern you can purchase it at Deby's blog. At the bottom of the page she has her sales blog. Her link is on my sidebar, O/C Knitiot
Check out her patterns when you get a minute. She recently started designing her own and she is doing a great job!

On the needles is still my Pilar Sweater. I have completed the back and I am working the front now. It is a fairly quick and easy knit. I am enjoying it.

I saw the gift you sent to Deby at OCK and wanted to tell you how nice they looked. Certainly sounds like she received them at a time she needed a pickmeup.

Have fun with the lacey riverine, I like you, have only done lacey type things in socks and am just about to verge onto a shawl or scarf. Your start on this looks great!

Hi Cheryl, Just wanted to compliment you on the great job with all your socks. I stumbled upon your blog somehow while reading some of the old yahoo spin lists. I have knit all my life but since getting carpol tunnel I had given it up. My niece wanted me to show her how to knit socks about two years ago and I discovered I can knit them without to much pain. I am a newbie to spinning and weaving but the bug has bitten me. Seven wheels and three looms since Christmas. We are almost neighbors, I live up in Saginaw. Have you checked out all the new sock yarn at Rapunzel's in Frankenmuth?? I went a little nuts Friday. Thanks for the spin list tip. I didn't know they had a group for us sock knitters.
