Socks, Fetchings, and more Socks

Hi all! I thought I'd share with you what I've finished recently - and show you some of my new stash!

Here are some socks I made for my 4yo son (he outgrew some I made him just a few months ago! I can't believe how fast he's growing!):

These are my own design based on Cat Bordhi's Sky Architecture in 'New Pathways for Sock Knitters'.

And a pair of Fetchings:

And here's a couple of things I'm working on right now-

A Juno Regina Stole (from Knitty) in Malabrigo Lace:

OMG, is this yarn some decadent stuff!! :-)

And a pair of Entrelac Socks (Interweave Knits Spring 2007):

These are in Seacoast Handpainted Superwash Sock in Desert Rose with some KP Gloss for the toes (and heels). I am *so* loving entrelac - this is my first. They're also my first toe-ups!

Oh, and look at these purty sock yarns!
The one on the left is Audacity by Black Bunny Fibers, and the one on the right is Yes We Can by MamaE CEyeBer Fibers. I especially love the Audacity because of the idea behind it - it's supposed to represent the many skintones of humanity. :-) (And the proceeds from both of these went to Obama's campaign, but that's beside the point. :-))

Oh, and I wrote up the pattern for my Mardi Gras Mask - I have it up on my blog for free. :-)

Anyways, I'll see you guys Saturday (if my parents aren't here visiting, that is!)

Oh my gosh that was a loaded entry!!!

LUV the socks!! Both pair! I knew that was you right away when I saw them! :o)

And how many hanks will the stole take??? I have 1 of malabrigo lace too but have a feeling you need 2!

I hope your folks don't come in this weekend so we can see you!!

VERY cool about the Audacity yarn!!
Please send link on where I can buy ;o)

And YAH!! On mask pattern! Thank you!!
