M-M-Mingus!

Looking for my blog contest/yarn giveaway? It's in the next post down. You can click here if you like. Or, you can read my blog post then meander down to the giveaway post. :)

Finally! I have finished the Mingus socks! And, boy did they turn out great:


My friend, Jenni, and I did a little mini-KAL. She finished her socks at least a month ago. Me? I finished them last night. Oh well. We both are proud owners of some Mingus socks, so all is good.

The Specs:

Pattern: Mingus by Cookie A. Oh, how I love me some Cookie A. patterns!
The Yarn: BMFA Socks That Rock Lightweight in the Turquoise colorway
The Needles: Size 2 dpns
Time to knit: Ravelry tells me it took a little over two months to complete these socks.
The Results: I absolutely love them. If I didn't have a bunch of other sock patterns queued I would probably start another pair. Maybe later this year. :)

So last night after I finished those socks, I got the urge to dye some yarn. And to dye something very un-Mariners yarn (don't get me wrong, I love the Mariners yarn, I just dyed A LOT of it). The neon green was calling to me, and I was trying a new yarn dyeing technique and I think the results were pretty good:
Both of these skeins are for sale in my etsy shop (http://knittinglikecrazy.etsy.com). I am calling the one on the left City Lights and the one on the right Zack Attack (hell yeah, Saved by the Bell reference!)

That's it for now. I received my July Rockin' Sock Club kit from BMFA today and I think I may start those socks. I am in love with the yarn and pattern!

Happy knitting!

  5. Nice socks! The new colors are pretty too! Saved by the Bell is an awesome show. I mentioned the other night that I thought there was a tool to wind skeins, it's called a niddy noddy. I've never used one but from what I've read they are handy.
