So the first stocking is done!
It just needs to be blocked and have a handle added to it. It’s still in the maybe pile for gifting. But its a real sock with heel turning and everything!
It even fits on a foot over my other socks but hey. I’ve also started the next sock. It is brown and it shall be called Guinness.
I also bought three more skeins of bulky weight at La Casita to get cranking on the next few socks.
A purple tweed, pink and purple blend and a shades of blue mix. The ST is a bit boring but going along faster than my pattern of puckering, and also with my plans this Saturday to watch LoTR TTT at Radio City I might cast on a new stocking so I have enough ST for the entire move.
I ordered the yarn to make my friend’s Wonder Woman cuffs and i was assured it would arrive, before Halloween, as there are no fingers or anything I just have to make the yellow area and possibly purl in that W which shouldn’t be too hard.

Still not sure how I feel about the new look but much warmer for an NYC Halloween. As this weekend is NY Comic Con and Lord of the Rings I won’t have a chance to hit up the Yarn craw. I may try to sneak into School Products before going to NYCC, but there is no way I can make it to La Casita or Knitty City. So everyone have fun, buy yarn! I’ll be buying comic books and bits. But next weekend I shall be heading up to Rhinebeck and the yarny goodness. Anyone else?
Also comic con is the reason for both the JL Scarf and the Lantern Scarf, so we’ll see if I find some geeky inspiration. I mean Dragon Con has gotten the idea into my head to attempt to make a Cyberman or Cyberwoman Lisa Costume.
Though possibly a few months at the gym before I don Lisa’s outfit. Though I’d likely wear brown tights or something, I’m not above some belly baring just yet. And Lisa looks much more comfortable for labor day weekend in Atlanta and getting around. I think I can mirror most of those effects with fabric.
