Little pictures

Sock club yarn from Sock Cinema. It's based on Sound of Music and a bit brighter than here. The colorway is "The Hills are Alive". It included recipes that would be Maria's "Favorite Things" and "tea to drink with jam and bread". The little extras made it very cute.
This is a kit sock. The pattern is by Cat Bordhi and called Flying Carpet Socks. It has a different kind of toe than usual, it's a garter stitch square. The kit came with two kinds of yarn, one Lorna's Laces (for the toe, heel and cuff) and one Mountain Colors Bearfoot for the main sock.

This is the Moderne Baby Blanket as it is so far. It's a tad further than this as I've now bound off that blue edge but pretty close. I like how it's coming out so far.

son and I went to the bead & button show Saturday. The only thing I bought was a kit from Deanna's Vintage Styles. (it's bracelet called Twisted if you are looking on the website). You have beads which you thread on metallic thread and then knit that with size 0000 needles. The kit makes one bracelet and one necklace. I'm showing one repeat below, the beaded strand and the needles with cell phone just for perspective. I didn't buy anything else because while walking around I was reminded of things I bought last year that are still not done. (three kits from last year are sitting in the craft closet)

ETA before bed: Finished the bracelet

When I saw the bracelet in the top picture in the RSS feed, I thought it was some kind of modern art dragonfly. Now it's all clear.
