Proof of Knit

I know it's been quite some time since I gave you any evidence that I actually knit! I've been so busy that I feel as though I've hardly knit at all these past few weeks, but I did actually find time to squeeze in one sock in the fourth pair for my mother's Christmas sock set and have started on the second sock of that pair.

This will be a super-simple sock with a 3X1 ribbed cuff and stockinet body. Yawn. The color gives it a bit of interest though. I'm using
Fearless Fibers Superwash Merino Wool Sock Yarn in Shades of Teal. The colors in the photo are not very accurate, since I took this picture indoors with a flash, but you get the idea. Just imagine considerably darker, richer shades of teal.

If I can finish this sock this week, perhaps I'll have time for a fifth pair before the holiday. I had planned on six pair for my mother for Christmas, but now it appears that it may only be four.

Of course, on the yarn dyeing front I've been far more productive! Here's one of the new colorways on Worsted Weight Mohair Wool (
Blissful) that you'll find in my Etsy shop:

That's all the news that's fit to print today. Hope everyone has a great day!
