Here is another installment in the Woolgirl Wizard of Oz Sock Kit Series and I don't know how Jen will ever top this one!
The pattern is called Twisted Cables The Glenda Sock and it is designed by Bethany Whitney. The sock yarn is Tosh Sock by Madelinetosh and the color is Glenda the Good Witch. I am not a huge pink person (even though my stash looks like I am) but this pink is awesome. It's really muted and dusky.

I finished these mittens in 2 days...the benefit of knitting with Chunky Yarn! I used my first month's Malabrigo Club yarn. Not my colors but my daughter loves it so they are hers. The pattern was made to resemble mittens worn in the movie Twilight and this daughter loves those books. She hasn't seen the movie yet.
I warned her of the value of the yarn and when she can and can't wear the mittens so they don't get ruined. This was my first time knitting malabrigo (believe it or not) and it's scrumptious.

Another fabulous Sock kit from Woolgirl. The yarn is Tosh Sock by Madeline Tosh in the Valentine colorway. My color is dark which I LOVE! But, I see other color intensities in the card pictures. So, I'm not sure if everyone got the same color or not. There is no indication of who made the cards, but the pictures are awesome. I have a close up of them down below. The kit also included a really cool heart shaped box filled with chocolates (which is very welcome today because I am in some pain!). There is also a stitch marker made by Sunneshine on etsy. There is a picture of her business card below if you want to check out her shop.
Thanks Jen! I just love your kits!

Yesterday my laptop wouldn't boot up. I ran diagnostics on it and called Dell this morning with the error codes. Turns out I have a hard drive failure. They are shipping me a new one. BUT, I just designed 8 new sock patterns that I haven't test knit yet and they are on the old HARD DRIVE. :( waaaaaa.
I have a PC guy here in the city who has done amazing things for me in the past with an old computer. I am hoping he can get everything off of the old hard drive before I replace it. If not, I think I might be sick!
Right now, I am using my old laptop that I passed down to my kids and the space bar hardly works and it is missing the e key. (took me forever and lots of editing, just to type this)
Think good thoughts for me please! I need those socks designs. They are so awesome! (all of my patterns that I bought are on there too!)
I bought an external hard drive too. From now on, all of my designs will be saved on both hard drives and as hubby suggested, I will email it to myself and store them in my yahoo account. HINDSIGHT!

If you have been waiting to buy my Shamrock Sock pattern, it is now up, and available for purchase on Ravelry.
The price is $5 until 2/17/09. At that time, the price will be raised to $6 to help defray unexpected costs. Please take advantage of the lower cost. I struggled with the decision to increase the price and decided that I needed to for the long term, but I really want everyone who has been waiting patiently for it to be available on Ravelry to get stuck with the higher price.
