The Fiber Artist

Wow, that sounds pretentious doesn't it. But it is the name of my company, so I decided to use it. This is where I will keep a record of works in progress in the hope that it will result in more productivity. It will also give me a place to ramble on about my life, so that maybe later I will remember what happened in ___ (fill in day, month, year of your choice).

Socks again Am I boring you yet?

Beadwork is moving very very slowly, and looks much like it did the last time I took a picture. Other than that, I have been working on socks, these are Sockotta in Cookie A's Pomatomus Socks. These were made upside down from the toes up, with afterthought heels, The pattern is easy on the legs but the graph has to be watched closely on the foot part, because of the compensation necessary.

Then there are these Sockotta Embossed Leaves from Interweaves Favorite Socks book. Also done toe-up with afterthought heels. The Embossed leaves is an easily remembered
pattern and fun to work, since once it is set up, the chart can be put away, and the pattern develops logically.

Socks That Rock: toe-up, afterthought heels, 2x2 rib on foot, and mini-cables up the legs. A nice break from all the cotton done on 00 needles. I like this yarn as much as most everyone else does.

I have several other skeins of STR which I should be able to get to soon, and will enjoy a lot.

The last one finished is the Monkey sock also from Cookie A, another easy to remember logical pattern and the Panda cotton is just great for socks, wonderful feeling, and very luxurious feeling. And I love the color.
