Statistics are beautiful or are those just socks?

I know this may not seem like much to some of you but this is the 103 post to my little blog. Only being a semi-regular blogger to maybe a 3 day a week blogger I was a little surprised when I noticed the amount of rubbish I've thrown out here and that you have apparently read and commented on. OK I'm an engineer and when I look at the statistics from the site counter I'm intrigued. Mrs. Twisted advised me not to go into the "boring" details but here is a brief synopsis.

As of 9:15 tonight it shows me this;

Lots of stats are fun, but not to all of you so here is some knitting content.

Mrs. Twisted finished her 2nd pair of socks from "Favorite Socks 25 Timeless Designs" from I.K. Embossed leaves Socks by Mona Schmidt made from Koigu KPPPM.

The colors are so beautiful in person, the multi-shades of pink and lilac that look a lot like Hydrangea.

Just a nod to Punkin, these are Hydrangea Oregon Pride variety.

    Punkin - that is the whole reason why I stole that sock yarn from Mr. Twisted. I've been loving the hydrangeas lately. I'm lucky to have a guy with such great taste in yarn!

  4. Hey Hey Mrs. Twisted,
    Nice socks!

    I still need to buy that book. Maybe before the camping trip...

    I am with you, Mrs. T. I like hydrangeas too. I like the way the colors in the yarn are like the flowers.

    I think it is great that you both share a passion for fiber.

    Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. I have not decided what to do with the Sock Hop yarn yet. What I think I have decided so far is to do something very simple that will give the yarn center stage. I would like to knit something like a moebius wrap (I'll have to add in other yarn) or gloves or something. It is like a puzzle piece that does not fit yet. In the meantime I get to gaze at its loveliness and study its construction. I need to learn to spin so I can have more yarn like that! How is your spinning coming? Do you get much time to practice? Have a great weekend.
