Pixie Power

As promised, there are some new stitch markers in the shop. Can you guess which are my favourite?
Dave and I had a pretty quiet anniversary weekend. He bought me all the stuff to build me a Mac, so he's been pretty busy working on that all weekend. I've been getting some much needed cleaning and organizing done. We did have a nice evening last night with some strawberry daquiris....

I did a little knitting, mostly on the crackghan - it's almost 14 inches long now. I didn't cast on for the hat, and it may get put on hold a little longer. I have the urge to cast on for some socks... and good pattern suggestions?

Didja ever do Broadripples? They're fast and easy and good for stripey yarns.

I have to get a bit smaller box so I can mail those sock yarn odds n ends for your crackghan. The one I have them in now is a smidge too big.

I'm about to cast on Pomatomus ... 3000 other Ravelers can't be wrong, can they?

Cute pixies!

I like the Monkey sock, also Pomatomus, and then there's always just your basic plain jane variety.

Happy belated anniversay! Glad you had a nice weekend - daiquiris are always good!

What about the Through the Loops mystery sock?

That sounds like a good weekend to me! As for socks, I'm not sure I'm the right person to ask. I now have both Cookie A's book, and Janel Laidmen's latest, and I want to knit everything therein. Trouble, I can feel it!
