Oh my, it's been a month since I last posted.

How time flies.  But I've been busy knitting socks and more socks. The pile of odds and ends seems to be multiplying rather than being depleted.  Of course, every so often our cat dives into his private stash of yarn balls and supplements my stash with an odd ball of yarn.  We can't be the only household in which the cat has amassed his own stash of yarn in a place only known to him, or are we?

So here are the next three pairs in the series.

These are knit with the remainder of some ancient Brown Sheep sock yarn on a 1 lb. cone which I bought for the huge sum of $1. 
A pi shawl and another pair of socks emerged from that pound cone as well.  I think I've used up the last of it. The lighter color is yarn I do not even remember buying. 

This is what happens when you forget to rewind one of the patterned balls which you have divided into two.  You get two different socks. These socks are made from a mixture of yarns, the blue cuffs and heels are knit with a hand-dyed yarn and the toes with a dab of Opal.

A variety of Opal, Regia, hand-dyed and ONLine. I weighed the yarn, halved it and knit until the yarn ran out.   

So now you know what I've been doing.

Knit on, Merrily!
