Knitting

I have in fact done some:
Here we have the neck warmer I knit for my God Daughter. Yarn is BMFA Socks That Rock lightweight in the Hard Rock colorway. It flares at the bottom so as to fit under her ski jacket. Keep the draft out without adding any bulk. I wrote up the pattern for this. I just have to type it up and have it tested. I love how the pattern is always changing. Anyone want to test knit this for me? I will send you the pattern and a skein of BunkyBoBo's to knit it with. Leave a comment with your e-mail.
Below are my boot socks. I finished the one you see here and have just started the 2nd. Yarn is Cherry Tree Hill supersock thin. Cosmic Night colorway (I think) I have had this yarn wound forever. I really like the colors, it is darker than it appears. This is also a pattern I just made up. Nothing fancy. I wanted a tight fitting leg but a flat foot to wear with my boots. I find a bumpy foot bugs me with all of my boots. I am not a girlie girl but I do love me the boots. I wear them almost year round. Short ones, tall ones, high heels, and low. Short red leather with spike heels and pointy toes... you get the idea. So I call these Short Boot Socks. I am knitting these on a 2.25mm. Tight for me. I am hoping they will wear well.

I have posted some more yarns and roving in the shop. With more coming later today. Remember free shipping on 2 or more skeins in July!
