I didn't knit any socks in March.
But I have two pairs this month for the SAM KAL...

Blueberry Waffle Socks by Sandy Turner
freebie found here
size:  women's sm/med
yarn:  Crystal Palace Yarns Panda Superwash,
color:  Violets
2 skeins:  50g/186yds each
needles:  size 2.75 mm
modifications:  I cast on 56 stitches since the pattern is written for a slightly heavier weight yarn

56-stitch basic stockinette sock with picot edging
size:  women's sm/med
yarn:  Heart & Sole by Red Heart
color:  Blackjack
2 skeins:  50g/213yds each

It's a chilly, gray day with rain in the forecast.
My work is caught up,
so I'm going to go spend a few hours with this...

And this...

Happy Wednesday!!!

Enjoy your day, hope the weather improves. As someone who has never knitted socks, I envy your talent for producing such lovely results.

Jeanne said...

Your knitting is so lovely Staci! I sort of wish I could do that...but I don't have time for the hobbies I already have let alone another obsessions and buying yarn! So I will live vicariously through your knitting adventures LOL. Lovely colors!

The Sampler Girl said...

Staci - your feet are never cold, that's for sure :) Love these new beauties.

Big HP fans here - enjoy!

Michele said...

Annie said...

Such pretty socks. You have the best hand-knit collection!

Dee said...

Sounds like the perfect way to spend a "not-so-perfect" day.

I LOVE the color on the Black Jack socks.

JelliDonut said...

I think you are about to have the perfect day--enjoy!

I haven't finished a pair since January and I'm getting all twitchy over it!!

valerie said...

Cool socks! They look fun and warm! Hope you enjoy your day full of knitting and movies. What fun!

KarenV said...

Sounds like you have the ingredients for a fun day! I love the socks and I also love your washcloths in the previous post - I really must head out and get some cotton yarn to make some myself, I love the colours you used!

Ranae said...

Nice socks!
The purple are my favorite, love purple socks, but thay are hard to find, lol
Enjoy your afternoon, what's left of it

Melody said...

Lovely socks. I just watched that movie last night, while stitching on "Spring" by Cricket designs.

Kate said...

Great socks!

Angela P said...

I just love popping over to your blog to see what you have knitted up next :) I always love the color of the socks that you make, they look super comfy too. I'm thinking of taking up knitting, maybe soon.

Hi Staci,

I am continually amazed at all
the colors and color variations
that knitting fibers come in.
And those Blueberry Waffle socks
are gorgeous!!!! I think I could
turn into a color junkie seeing
all your wonderful socks in their
many colors ... sorta like Joseph's
coat of many colors.

We picked up the latest Harry
Potter DVD as well. I saw it
with friends back in November
in the theatre but my DH did
not have the opportunity to
see it then and is anxious to
watch it before the final
movie comes out in July. I
picked up the latest Narnia
DVD as well because I missed
seeing that in the theatre
when it was out.

Happy Easter Staci!!

I love the socks, especially the colours in the second pair. That looks like a great way to spend an afternoon to me - enjoy!

Siobhan said...

Great job on the socks! Being creative and watching a movie with a cup o'joe on a dreary day... it doesn't get any better!

Gabi said...

Lovely socks Staci. Both pairs of socks are very beautiful

lily said...

I have serious sock love, they are gorgeous, which reminds me I should really be getting out my dpns and start my gift sock knitting.

Loved the first part of Deathly Hallows, now just waiting to watch part two.........enjoy your film and cuppa.

Virginia said...

Man. Love the socks. And yeah, the weather was wretched for a bit there. Seemed like the entire country was in the grip of nastiness.

Nancy said...

You knit the prettiest socks Staci! Enjoy your coffee, movie and knitting!

Carolyn said...

Staci,each pair you knit becomes my favorite. LOL The Blueberry Waffle is GORGEOUS!! I just love the colors on both of them, but the blueberry ones really stick out for me. So, so pretty!
One of these days (I keep telling myself) I'm going to learn to knit. It's on my bucket list. :)

Happy Easter to you and yours.

WendyJo said...

Love the socks Staci. I'm with Carolyn...I gotta learn to knit!


Harmien said...

Hope you had a great time!! Love the Blackjacks!

Lois said...

Love the socks! Hope you enjoyed your afternoon. Can think of no better way to spend time when the weather isn't co-operating.

Sahara said...

I love that you knit socks, that's just too cool. :)

I love all the Harry Potter films, can you believe he's doing Broadway now?

Happy Easter to you and your family!

mdgtjulie said...

What cute socks. I love the colors of both of them. I haven't seen Deathly Hallows yet, but I really want to. I need to get the DVD.

cpeezers said...

I love that picot edging. I don't much like doing them, but I love how they turn out! Hope you enjoyed your afternoon with Harry Potter!

Solstitches said...

You are a prolific sock knitter Staci! I love to see the things you've knitted.
The washcloth pic in your sidebar is so pretty.
