An Exchange without a name

Ok. So the whole sock exchange thing.

I'm still in.

Make a pair of socks for someone... and someone makes a pair for you. Obviously not a new idea (sockpalooza and other much cooler ) but this is a smaller group of buds and since I'm not exactly confident in my sock makin' abilities.... I thought a small exchange with people who'd forgive me for an ugly ass sock...might be a good thing. What a sentence eh?

If you'd like to be a part of the little group.... then email me.... leave a comment.... send smoke signals.... or something. I think that I have eight people so far. I am working on one 'possible'. Feel free to go and harass her as she makes kick butt socks and we'd love to be the recipient.

Actually, I guess you'd better email me if you are wanting to be in the whole SET (sock exchange thing, hehe) so I will know for sure. I'm awful at this whole keeping track of comments thing.

We also need a more clever name than SET for the exchange. Ideas?

I have been knitting.... a lot. Mostly on the scarf for my Secret Scarf Pal (its beautishus I say!). But I also started the yummy arm warmers.



Sooo cute. As you can see I'm about 4 pattern repeats in. I think I have two more repeats til I get to the thumb gusset. I'm so diggin' these. And they will be great gifts too. The yarn is... the yarn we do not speak of. Can you guess which yarn? A hint.... its discontinued. And most knitters would scoff at even the idea of it.

I am not most knitters. I am a girl with a $250 plumbing bill, $300 car repair bill and no budget for yarn. This yarn I had on hand.... its soft.... and knits up wonderfully.

Is that soooo awful?

Don't hate the knitter. Hate the yarn, man.

You are the girl, just where do you get the strength to do everything you do. I would love to join the sock thing, but I am no where near making socks. I have not even tried. Do you know of a great beginner pattern for me. lots of good wishes your way.

was going to go harrass...errrr...ENCOURAGE susie...but it doesn't sound like it's necessary, does it? *grin*

what's a pair of socks among friends, even if it's people you've only met online? i imagine the good feelings knit in will do as much to warm the heart as the socks will to warm the feet *warm fuzzies*

So - can I knit a sock, sorrry socks, for someone that will love it, sorry, love them for what they are.....ie beginner socks? I can try a really easy fancy schmanzy sock (emphasis on REALLY EASY) pair if someone knows a pattern and wants to send it to me....

Have not yet delved into the sock realm, but I am gathering courage and provisions and making maps and plans in order to do so in the not too distant future.

I'm guessing the mystery yarn is Wool-Ease. I'm loving the Cotton-Ease I snagged at a Tuesday Morning (discount shop)recently. I'ts becoming a tank top for my girlie in two (COUNT 'EM, TWO) fab shades o'blue.

Never made a sock in my life.

Loving your arm warmers so far. They look great!
