Dragon Hoard Yarns! I purchased one of her skeins recently "Evermore" because it is beautiful and I love Beauty and the Beast! Haven't decided what I am going to do with it yet other than fondle and admire.


Oh my word! That sock in the first photo. I may have swooned a little.

I've bookmarked your loves for reading later this rainy afternoon.



I think 7 pairs of socks is very impressive! I'm definitely coveting some Dragon Hoard Yarn now that I see the colorway you are knitting. And I'm so pleased that you liked my shawl and recipe - indeed no one will ever accuse me of being afraid of color! lol Have a relaxing and fun Sunday Andi and like you I'm starting to look forward to Fall.

Oooh, that Dragon Hoard yarn is yummy. What a beautiful sock!
I hadn't "met" Ella before and I love her video blog. That accent is so pretty. I know we are late to the game, but my husband and I are in the middle of the BBC series Shetland, and we are both enchanted by the islands.
I do love early morning knitting. Throw in coffee and it's the best part of the day!

Thanks Andi for the link! I am honored the post made the list. Your socks are looking AMAzing. Can't wait to see what's next.


Oh, how exciting, thank you!! Great list, as always- I especially loved the post about losing weight while knitting socks. For a while, I was really into knitting socks on my exercise bike, but I fell out of the habit; this has definitely motivated me to start back up!


thanks for the link and you and I could sit for a bit and drool all over lightweight knits, right? I LOVE the socks the wee cable detail and the deep color :) :)


Only 7??? Last October, I came back to knitting after learning to knit as a child. I never progressed past scarf. So in October, I decided to make almost everyone I knew, a pair of socks for Christmas (I had never even made socks). HAHAHHAHAHAHA I made ONE sock, that would fit a Sasquatch. Like really. I'm now on my fourth pair of socks and getting closer and closer to the perfect fit. But I still crack myself up when I think back to thinking I could make like 12 pairs of socks from October to Christmas. :) And I love the Dragon Hoard yarn.


Gorgeous sock! It's so true, I'm suddenly hit by the fact that tomorrow is August and then it's the last bit of summer before back to school in the fall. But as a parent, I'm totally looking forward to it!


What a delicious pile of socks! As always such a joy to be a part of your Loves, especially in the company of my favorite bloggers :)


I love how your Impossible Girl socks turned out. What a sweet pattern that will definitely be making its way onto my to-knit sock list. Looking forward to settling in with a big mug of coffee and visiting all the July Loves :) Have a wonderful week!


Oh I love seeing how the colorway looks knitted up! I'm still giggling from reading the name of the colorway. Have to put in my best Hermione Granger effort, ha!


That is pretty yarn you are knitting your socks with. Seven socks is really good so far! nice pile, they all look so good together. Pretty pink yarn for your shawl-to-be!
