9-5 socks

9-5 socks by you.

Hooray, I finally finished these 9-5 socks (and portions of these were knit during the hours of 9-5, shhh)!  They took longer than the regular ribbed socks but they sure are purty.

Can you believe someone threw this bike away?  I picked it out of the trash and took it to a bike shop for a tune up and now it’s all ready to go!  The bike is a bit high for me and I’ve never ridden a bike with gears but I’ve been having fun riding it around the park.

I just LOVE these blue handles.

Now I’m slightly obsessed with vintage bicycles.  I heart old school styles.

I have the sock knitting bug

Here’s a new sock I just started working on.  I’m taking a break from those bright self-striping yarns and playing with texture this time.  I’m using the Nine-to-Five Socks pattern and I’m psyched that I figured out how to do those faux cables…you can already see the twists!

Another pair of socks!

Back to good old ribbed socks.  Just finished these last night.  Now I can get more sock yarn!
