I couldn't find the pictures for my Tiger Eyes socks so I had to take another one.
It looks pretty good if I may say so myself. The picture doesn't but we can't have everything. I really need to find the tag for this yarn because it is absolutely gorgeous. It is so perfect for this time of year when it's cold because the colors make me think of warm summer days. It makes me think of watermelons or a strawberry patch. Yum!

This is also the first time that I am doing socks with the Magic Loop method on my very first pair of Addi Turbos. Also yum. I don't mind this method and for this particular pattern (which I was having trouble with) I really think it's working the best but I am not going to leave my dpns in the dust. I still prefer them.

A note about the Schaefer Anne: This skein has 560 yards and the yarn is so beautiful that I want to use as much of it as possible. That's why I am doing these socks toe-up. I am also doing this:
I started the one sock from the center of the center-pull ball and worked it to past the heel. Then I took another set of needles and the outside strand of yarn and started the toe of the second sock. I plan to knit to past the heel on this one and then alternate to use as much of the yarn as I can. It's so beautiful and I'm hoping to get a little bit taller socks from this skein. I would love to have knee-highs but I don't think that I will be going that tall.
While going through some projects to post all my current projects on the fabulousness that is Ravelry I found this:
It's a shawl I started made of Knit Picks Shadow in Redwood Forest. (I don't remember if I ever blogged about it.) I am designing it myself and so far, I do like it. I think it's turning out very nicely but I have a Long way to go. Since I am trying to finish up some projects, I think that this is going to be added to the list.
I have two skeins and if I like the pattern, I might try to sell it. We'll see. So far, it's just a pretty little thing I'm making.
I have one other thing that's currently in the Basket but it's a secret project so I can't blog about it. I promise photos of it when it's done though.
