Happy Knitting 2010!

I decided to start my own blog this year. So here it goes!

One of my new year's resolution is to knit a pair of socks each month for myself and family.  I'm excited to learn new techniques along the way.  I like knitting socks because I can take it wherever I go!  And yes, it's quite addicting, too!

The Leyburn Socks are my January sock project.  The pattern is very pretty yet simple. It's a free pattern so you can download the file from the link.  I've started the first one on Saturday, and it's almost done.  Here is a photo of the sock before the heel.  It fits perfectly.

The yarn I'm using is the Universal Yarn Pace, a cheap generic yarn. I see people commenting on Ravelry it's splitty and itchy but I don't mind working with this yarn. Here is a photo of the sock about an inch to the cuff.

I can't wait to finish them up!


  1. Those look really nice! I'll have to check out the pattern and maybe give it a try one of these days, haha. =)

  2. I really like the look of your blog as well, the fish are cute. They actually follow your cursor around, haha!

  3. Hi Carrie! I wasn't using this blog for a while, I didn't know you were commenting on my blog! Thank you for reading everything! You can feed the fish by clicking on it too!
