First Post

Hi all, This is Jerry AKA Twisted Knitster from California. This is my first entry into the blog and I guess I should disclose that I am part of a wife / husband team. I'm much slower and have multiple projects on the needles and she just plows through the projects one at a time. The first pair of socks are waving lace from the IW favorite socks book. Yarn is Posh Lucia 80/20 Merino cashmere, colorway "Farewell".

Mr. Bones loved to use this as his sleeping bag while the other sock was being completed.

Posh yarn is a dream to knit with and heaven on the feet. We use posh as couch socks in the evening when the floor gets cool. Nothing better than snuggling up on the couch in cashmere socks when it gets chilly enjoying a hot cuppa. Neither of us are green yarn lovers but the subtle blends look almost like Monet colors.

Next is my first toe up sock that will become Feather and Fan in YarnAddictAnni easy care merino colorway "Pink Swirl" for my teenage Daughter's Christmas present.

Such consideration for Mr Bones - glad he isn't cold at night!! Your socks are lovely.

Mr Bones appreciates your warm thoughts. Thank you for being so accepting to us on the other side of the Equator. Your kind words about the socks made my day. More to come soon I hope.

Lovely socks! That's an unsual container for your pink yarn - great idea!
