Off to see the wizards of knitting!

On my way to the airport (ha ha ha) I thought I'll just show you my first socktoberfest pair of socks and my Noro log cabin pillow. These are the razor shell socks in yarn from Curious Yarn in color Autumn Earth, knit 2 on 2circs Addi us1. The Noro log cabin was knit in two days, once I started, I could not stop, (16"x16") with odds of Kureyon I found when I raided my stash to look for Kureyon for the Lizard. Addi us7, to make it tight. The colors work, don't they? That's Noro magic!
A splash of color on the trees, finally!or:If you are going to Ally Paly, London, say hi! I'll be the one with the I love to knit t-shirt...

That pillow is gorgeous! What a good idea. Pillows and not blankets. Hmmmm.

The sock looks especially pretty close up! And man, what gorgeous fall colors.

Hey Whaddayamean - "off to see the wizards" that is the true comment of a wizard. It could have fooled me if I didnt have a closer look on your wonderful pillow. I agree, Noro is really doing well there. And now I understand you sock-craze! It is contagious. Oh, my friend, Thank you so much for all the good times in London. It was worth every minute to spend it with the TRUE wisard! YOU!

Love the socks Hila!

The pillow is really lovely.

I sat next you at the last Sit 'N Knit New York and took your suggestion of putting my patterns in plastic sheets. It worked so well I did it with my needles too!

Hope you had a blast in London.
