As Promised...

A knitting post. :) I meant to post a work-in-progress post on Wednesday and a finished object post on Friday, but I got sucked into moving and was also a little lazy when I finally did stop and rest. We're almost done moving, which is a relief.

Briefly, before I run off to bed, here's what I'm working on intently: starry socks. :) I took pictures of all the Stellar Sock Club yarn I've received and failed to share (shame on me!). I'll have to share the love this weekend or sometime next week.

The colorway I'm knitting up is Fomalhaut. It's the second one I received after Orion's Nebula. I knit up one sock in the beautiful pattern that came with it, but it was really just too frilly for this tom girl. Instead, I chose a vanilla sock pattern (it's actually called Vanilla Sock!) and, since a bunch of beads came with the sock yarn, I integrated them into the leg randomly like a...constellation, I guess. I hope to have the pair done by Friday, so I'll share then.

I've got to get to bed! Big day tomorrow! Thanks for stopping by!


  1. That's beautiful! I love the way the beads are randomly interspersed, it looks absolutely stunning.

  2. Thank you! The beads turned out better than I imagined. I hope I can replicate the effect on the second sock just as well. :S


Thank you for reading and commenting! I love to hear what's on your mind!
