I Love You, Yarntini

Hi Knitters,
I can't say it enough, I love Yarntini. I am not ashamed to proclaim my love. I know I tend to gush over things I find wonderful, but that's just how I am. I mean it when I say it.
The color way is called Pureknits, but it is like neopolitan ice cream. One of my favorite color combinations is pink and brown, another is light blue and brown. You can't go wrong with either of those.
I can't fully describe how these socks feel on your feet, well, foot right now. The yarn is incredibly soft and squishy. The rib makes the fit fantastic and snug, like your foot is being held sweetly. I used size 2 needles. I did a knit 3, purl 1 rib, couldn't be any easier if I tried. I love having that simple project to interject between designing new projects from scratch. Socks rule.
I love you, Yarntini, I really do.
best, susie

Those are GORGEOUS! The only complaint I have is how long it takes for a custom order...going on 8 weeks for me...with say Yarn Pirate, Scout or Sunshine Yarns it's a matter of a few weeks!

I love the pink and brown!

Hi Susie,

I bought your book last year and it is lovely! Thanks for the nice note you left inside - what an inspiration. I have a new little one and enjoy knitting for him. So glad to find your blog, I'll be following your adventures attentively :) All best,

Where could I find a pattern for the socks? The only knitting I've done so far is from Itty-Bitty Hats!

Hi Leah,
There are so many places to get a great simple sock pattern. Look at (link on my sidebar). They have many single sheet sock patterns. There is one from Pure and Simple and one from Koigu that look good to me. There is also a new book out called Easy Socks that I haven't looked at personally but maybe you should check out. There are sock patterns included in a lot of books with different types of projects like Weekend Knitting, and Simple Chic. Favorite socks is good too, but has more advanced patterns if you are a beginner. Thanks for starting knitting with Itty-Bitty, I am honored.

Thank you for the sock info. I have gotten RAVES about the pumpkin hats. Everyone loves them. I know so many people having babies this year; they'll all getting pumpkin hats! Thanks for the great designs and for teaching me how to knit!
