Aren't they just darling?????
This will be a Christmas present for our oldest granddaughter (19 in December - wow time flies!!!). She loves hedgehogs, so I couldn't resist this pattern when I saw it on Ravelry. I ordered the pattern, yarn and accessories in a kit from Morehouse..... Emma is going to love these! And I think they will be fun to knit as well :)
I've also found time here and there to put a few rows on my current socks - Smooshy Raspberry.....
They're a strange shape at this stage, aren't they? I just finished the gusset section and ready to start turning the heel. I really love working heels!
Can you believe these are from the same skein of yarn? One is definitely lighter than the other. The sales clerk at my LYS wound the skein into a ball for me when I bought it. Then when I got home, I split it into two balls by winding the outer thread into a ball until I had two balls that weighed approximately the same. So basically, one is knit from one end of the skein, while the other is knit from the other end. It's a good thing I don't mind my socks having personality, right?
And speaking of socks and personality.... How do you like my new shoes???
These are Alegria shoes in the Paloma design.
Yes, they are wild and crazy - and I love them!!!!
Michelle told me about these shoes at Red Rooster and said they were the most comfortable shoes she owns. They are made similar in design to Birkenstocks, which I wear almost exclusively nowadays. Wonderful arch support and wide toes area. She said they no longer make this design, so if I wanted a pair I'd better get out there and find them quick. So I did! (on eBay)
And the socks are my House of Targaryen socks - love the two together!
So what's on your needles?
Hugs & Blessings!
