inch by inch

row by row.
gonna watch this seed stitch grow.


it's actually finishd, all i have left to do is weave in the ends of the second border... wonder how long the scarf will languish this way?

lookie lookie what i got in the mail! the shingle creek trail socks kit from anne at willy wonka fibers :-)

anne calls the color red river, but as soon as i laid eyes on it, to me it looks like red mountain pass,


and the rope cable is the animas river.



many happy memories.

these socks will be for dd next christmas :-)


sock , and saturday sky all in one photo.

Looking forward to seeing the socks completed. I need to get over to Telluride to take some pictures for you. Lizard Head Pass too.

How many yards of seed stitch? It's really pretty, and so are the socks.

Love the photos! I've knit on the Animas river in a canoe - it is a very nice way to spend the day. I wish we could afford to return.

Beautiful ALL!! The scarf is amazing...and so are you!
I plan my Christmas projects and sometimes even get one or two of them done by the designated date. How wise of you to start this far ahead.
The sock yarn is lovely...I love knitting on exciting yarn ;)..and these socks have a complete story behind them as well...fabulous!

You are right! It sure does look like those rocks too! :) And you are a very speedy knitter. What fun for me to see them knit up so quickly - thanks!

Wow, pretty photos and pretty projects!

How are the bohus ends coming along? (everytime I think of bohus now I hear your voice saying it correctly instead of the way I used to say it!)

I want to be in Florida with that pretty sky instead of the grey, grey all day here!

Nice photos. The shingle creek trail sock color reminds me of Sedona and the red rocks.

Where you been, little missy?
We miss your banter!! 10 days is too long to go without a Vanessa-fix!

I neglected to mention in my other comment that I just adore the photo of the red mountain pass. It's simply luminous, and draws me in. What is it about water reflecting mountains (hills) that is so peaceful? Perhaps because the water needs to be peaceful in order to reflect? hmmmm.....
