Maddie Knits

My addiction to knitting and the life around it.

It’s Killing Me Right Now!

So, I’ve been drooling over the Options needles [ you know, these? ] and it’s killing me that I still don’t have them yet!  I’m not a big fan of the Harmony ones, though.  I’ve never been big on the wooden circular needles, just the straight ones.  Who doesn’t love Brittany and Lantern Moon straight needles?!  If you don’t, something is defniately wrong.

So, I have found a new love and appreciation for knitting socks and the only thing to do with a finding like that is to embrace it by buying mass amounts of yarn and knitting up a sock storm =)  So I obviously need patterns to do this, so I found this great one by the girl that designed the Irish Hiking Scarf [ this one ].  Well, anyways.  She made this great sock pattern called  Cable Twist Socks [ which can be found here ].  I think they’re downright adorable and I can’t wait to find the perfect yarn to knit them up with!  I mean, look at the detail of this cable stitch:


Isn’t that just amazing?!  Anyways, just had to show that off.  Hopefully you guys will go by and check her stuff out, because it’s just amazing!

Well, I think that’s all for today.  I have to head over to work and play with the babies soon.  I know — it’s just not fair that I can call that doing work, but I can =)
