Singing the Blues

Rockin' Sock Club 2009 kit in da house! As usual, don't scroll past the second pic of my project below:

Moebius for Peace

yarn: Blue Moon Fiber Arts Luscious Single Silk in Moody Blues
pattern: Cat Bordhi's moebius scarf from knitty gritty
needles: US size 10.5 KP nickel-plated circs

I love how Moody Blues knit up, even in its unblocked state. I have 129 g of the LSS skein leftover. Plenty for a second moebius (moebii to spare?) or a pair of Toasts/Toastys. I haven't decided yet.

A nice way to end an interesting month.

I love the colorway (so me!) and am definitely in my Blue Heaven. Queen of Beads, however, I am not. As for my ballband bluesy singer, I got Lucinda Williams. Off to hear a sampling of her music online.

Beautiful moebius! I vote for a pair of toastys so you can keep both your neck and hands warm.

Zowwie, you really are singing the blues, two projects' worth! I have made a new goal to cast on the day my kit comes because I got behind last year. I love the cast-on and the color. I did not have fun stringing beads. My friend Carol says she enjoys that. Yuck. Carol, come string my beads for me, please.

The new STR kit is lovely. I wish I had joined, but I didn't knit any of the kits last year, so I couldn't justify the spending this year.
Absolutely beautiful Moebius!

I LOVE this month's kit. Definitely glad I splurged on another year of the sock club!
