July Socks

These are my July socks. I finished these earlier this month and decided to enter them in our local county fair. I have never done this before but I thought I'd give it a shot. It turns out only two pairs of socks were entered and the judges liked the others better! They are made from Cherry Tree Hill in the Champlain Sunset colorway. The pattern is Little Shell Socks that I got from the internet.
I really like the way they turned out, even if I didn't win!!

One Skein Pal Rocks!!

Today I got my one skein pal package and let me tell you, this yarn is beautiful! I love it so much and I can't wait to use it. I found a toe up pattern for this yarn. This picture doesn't do the colors justice. It's a hank of Artyarns handpainted stripes. Here it is:

Thank you, thank you one skein pal!!
