Dahlia Yarn

I don't know if anyone still comes to this site but if you do, I wanted to post my socks knit from the Dahlia shipment:

I love this colorway! The pattern is the toe-up Double Eyelet Rib Socks. If you'd like to see more pics or get more info, you can find it here. Thanks! Tiennie

finally a pair

Activity here seems to have dropped off a lot. I'm still working on knitting up the Petals colors and patterns and finally finished the Dahlias this past week. Having such a backlog of sock yarns and patterns, I decided not to participate in Sundara's newest sock club. I miss getting those beautiful packages in the mail, but I can console myself knowing that I still have a *lot* of knitting ahead of me to finish the Petals Collection. :)

This is a very pretty pattern and I think it *does* show up to better advantage in the semi-solid colors as Peaknits showed when she knitted it in the Grape Hyacinth color.

If you'd like a preview . . .

. . . I've posted a photo of the new Petals yarn on my blog. I'm very happy with it--now if I could just finish up the Poppies, I'd be all set!

Last Petals Collection installment arrived today...

The color is gorgeous even if it's not one I would ever choose for myself. I love the pattern—I'll have to exercise some restraint so I don't start this pair of socks. (Chant to self: must finish Christmas presents first!) I'll try and post pictures on my own blog later today.

Thank you, Sundara, for all the wonderful colors and great patterns. I'm very sad to see this club end!

Finished - dahlia in grape hyacinth


I decided to mix things up a bit and used a different pattern than the yarn inspired - I really like the end product. The pattern, with all of it's twisted stitches really shows definition in a semi-solid colorway - love it!

I wrote more about my socks over at my blog! Is anyone else crying in their beer that the last installment is on the way? This was the best sock club ever.

Poppy Socks

Hi all! I finished these Poppy Socks a couple of weeks ago but didn't want to post them here for fear of spoiling the surprise for any of you. I think it's safe to post now:

I love this color! If you'd like more info or see more pictures, you can find it here. Thanks! Tiennie

Just received the new kit. . . .

. . . and I love both the yarn and the pattern. I've posted a photo (behind a spoiler screen) of the yarn on my blog, check it out if you can't wait for yours to arrive.
