The Yarn: Steinbach Activ Effect (purchased on the Smoky Mountains vacation)
The Needles: Size 2 dpns, as always
The Pattern: Broadripple from Knitty. I modified the pattern a little bit. I went toe-up and the yarn overs are not quite in the 'right' spot because I was going off memory.
The verdict: My sister has a very nice new pair of socks!
Of course, I had to cast on a new pair right away. And what do we have here?
It's the Coupling socks! Another fine pattern on knitty, written by Deb. I highly recommend reading Deb's blog. It's a good one. The pattern is written for toe-up, but I didn't feel like knitting another pair of toe-up socks, so I am knitting cuff down. It's looking good so far--I love it!
Also, there has been some yarn winding taking place today:
Well, I wound this one skein to get it onto my Etsy site. I am calling this one Cherry Garcia*. I think it's a good name. Anyway, if you would like to see some more pictures of this yarn, you can see them here.
I think that is all I have for now. There will hopefully lots of time for knitting and organzing of Etsy yarn and what not. Oh and a contest. Stay tuned for details on my next blog contest. I think I should be ready to go on Thursday. Hooray for free yarn.
And, now it's time to cook me some dinner! Happy knitting!

* Please Note: This yarn sold on 8/14/07. As it seems to be one everyone likes, I will try to dye some more of it soon. Stay tuned! :)
