Mitten Swap Goodies

I just wanted to share some cool yarn I got from a mitten swap on Ravelry!!!The colors are beautiful and the yarn is wondiferous!! Thanks, Sandie!!!! :) The variegated yarn is chunky/thin/chunky!!! the bigger ones are Araucania Magallanes color 312, and Araucania Nature Wool Chunky, color 120. The smaller ball is Zitron Filou, color 112. Aren't they gorgeous??? I can't wait to knit some mittens and/or wrist warmers with them!!

Sock Saga

Here they are:
My second pair of socks. The pattern is from Very Easy Circular Knits by Betty Barnden. A very easy pattern and I knit the first 2 pair of socks from that pattern. The third pair is started and the pattern is "Janis' Koigu Socks" from the internet but I am using SockPixie's Scarlet Pimpernel Yarn instead of Koigu. I also decided that I am going to use size 1 needles next time. I have the book Knitting Circles Around Socks and attempted to knit socks on two circs following the book, but I got frustrated and went back my size 2 dpns. So, I am half done with the first sock of the third pair already!! I think I love sock yarn and knitting socks, even though I am such a newbie........ I even joined Sock Knitter's Anonymous on Ravelry... ;) .
