Watermelon Monday

Hi Knitters,
I have socks on the brain lately. These watermelon socks are knitting up quite nicely in the sereknity dk weight yarn. These go a lot faster on the size 4 dpns. Lovin' that. I am still into the simple sock right now. A simple rib or stockinette is all it takes to make me happy. I never knit the cuff longer than 6 inches, too. I don't enjoy a long cuff which is good for knitting socks.
I am doing a seed stitch rib, which I will tell you more about when I finish the pair. Okay, now I have 1 vesper sock, 1 yarntini sock and close to 1 sereknity sock. I will be in heavy sock rotation until these pairs are all complete. That doesn't include the other 2 half finished single socks I have sitting in my studio. What's a girl to do but finish these up. I always finish everything I start but I am just keeping it interesting with the socks. I'll keep you posted.
It's a watermelon Monday alright.
best, susie
p.s. Check out woolgirl for some great new sock yarns just in this week.

Hi Susan, I just listened to your interview on Craft Sanity. I love the story about how you got to the writing of your book. I am just starting a book myself and I have never done anything like it before. I could really identify with what you said. The other funny thing about my book is that my husband is doing the photography for the book! I hope that we are still married by the time the book is finished! Thanks again for your lovely stories. The interview was really inspirational! Cheers, Laurie
