Arch Shaped Sock #1

Sock #1 finished and sock #2 started. I decided not to knit these two at time because I wasn't sure how exactly the arch shaping worked, but now I know that two at a time using this pattern would be a snap.

I really like how these socks fit and will definitely use this technique in the future.

I got nothin'

nothin' on the needles! the horrors!! I've got sock yarn coming out my ears, so I'm going to go rattle around in my Raverly.com project queue to see what strikes my fancy!

Yet another quick and easy project using just a few dollar's worth of yarn. To me this is the ideal project to just have around -- I don't have to think about it, I don't need a pattern yet it keeps me busy.

I love these bags when I'm at the farmer's market because they stretch to hold quite a bit of stuff!!

Finally finished these socks. They took me forever because I started them and then set them aside for two months....

The pattern was really easy to remember though fiddly on the legs because of the spirals. The yarn is Lion Brand Sock Ease and I was pretty pleased with it.

Woo-hooo! I am almost there! I am in the process of switching up a needle size instead of adjusting the pattern in the calf area. I really like the pattern, it's super easy though fiddling around to move the stitches on and off needles due to the spiral is a bit of a pain the keister.
