A Match Made in Yarn Heaven!

Done Done Done!!! The Pomatomus socks are finished. In fact they are hot off the needles right now. I don't know about you all out there, but I think this was a match made in yarn heaven between the Pomatomus pattern and the Trekking yarn. The pattern just is so beautiful with this yarn. Take a look:

This and That 020

I just want to sit and stare at them cause I think they are so pretty. I am amazed that I made something so pretty. Sigh.........I love knitting specially knitting socks! Speaking of which I am going to cast on for my second Hedera sock next.

Ok in other news I took the rug monkeys to Idlewild today. We were only there for a couple of hours. Long enough to get our pictures taken for season passes and for the kids to ride for a while. Me? I Kipped of course. I really wanted my sockies done. Since we were going to Idlewild, which is right outside of Ligonier, I made a stop at Kathy's Kreations! Ok big shock here I bought another ball of Trekking. I don't have the color number handy, but it is grey/yellow/blue/green. Very nice. My son wants me to make him socks from it. I don't know I love me some Trekking. While there I also bought another pair of knitting needles. I am trying to set some knitting goals for me this week. First was to finish the Pomatomus socks. Next is to finish the pair of Hedera socks. After that, I want to work on my Morehouse Merino shawl and start and finish the new sweater I got yarn from Elann.com for. I am pooped so sorry no links tonight. Maybe tomorrow and maybe I will show the new yarn for the new sweater!
