Summer of Socks 09 & A Sale

So I sat down last night and made a list of socks I would like to (try and) complete for this years Summer of Socks 2009. The theme is stress free, so to that end I decided I would like to finish up some pairs I have laying around that have a bit of second sock syndrome.

Twisted Tulip Socks-1 fully finished, second to go.

River Ripple Socks-needles, pattern and yarn are in bag ready to be cast on.

The Classic Sock- First sock is almost at the heel turn (this one was supposed to be a Christmas gift last year but got so put off!)

Roger Sock- Great new pattern from KnitSpot, have to pick a great variegated color.

Angora House Socks- If I'm lucky I will get this far, but here's hoping.

Embossed Leaves Socks- I have wanted to do these and have had the yarn for a year now.

Sprucey Lucy Socks- still need to pick some yarn for these...hmm...

I think I better stop there since I will be surprised if I get half of those done. I am not a terribly fast knitter and am going to be spending tons of time dyeing yarn, etc. so I will have to be sure and steal some time for myself in the evenings. I dyed 28 skeins yesterday and have listed some new things in the shop that were dyed last week such as this one (great for the upcoming 4th and summertime):

Bomb Pop-Hand-painted superwash merino wool.

I've got lots of other fun, summer colors being listed over the next few days and I'm running a School's Out SALE!! to help kick off summer. You can take 10% off all purchases now through June 30th, 2009. No coupon code needed.
I think that's going to be it for tonight (not much, I know, but I'm working on it). I have lots more dyeing to be done in the AM and listing on Etsy as well. I am trying to get as much work done as possible this week since I would like to take a "day off" from everything this weekend and take my kids fishing or some such fun-ness. We went strawberry picking recently and it was great to just get the kids out without any stress. So, til next time ciao!
