Question in the episode 9 thread about knitting without looking. (there is also a comment somewhere about how Glenda knits - she’s not a continental knitter)
What 3 fictional characters would you be?
Glenda is: Bubbles (Powerpuff girls), Sailor Moon and Glinda
B: Lumpy space princess, Hermoine, Wanda (possibly substitute hermoine for Sailor Mercury)

~Stripey Sunny Side Up by Isabell Kraemer
Left out the lace pattern, making stripes instead.
Knit One, Crochet Too Cozette (62% Silk, 30% Cotton, 8% Nylon) in Medium Blue and Seaglass. Its about 3 skeins… I think one was overweight, therefore the count is off. Computer says I only had 2 blue skeins, not 3.
Started this in June 2014 (?!?)

~Petty Harbour Socks
Wendy Sunbeam St. Ives sock yarn that I got from a Secret Pal swap back in 2006. It has been waiting for the right pattern, clearly. ;)
I found these socks through a quick search on Ravelry, but now I’ve seen them everywhere!
They fit my favourite sock method - cuff down, 2.25 DPNs, heel flap.
~Cowl of Many Colours
This is made with my Custom Woolen Mills leftovers. It’s a sample of what you can make from the sock kits we are going to be selling at Knit City, although I like the kit colours better!
