On the Needles - 11/23

If you are looking for the Modern Designs for Classic Quilts book giveaway, that is in this post.
There is still time to enter!

Before heading out for Thanksgiving with the family yesterday, I thought that I could take some knitting with me to work on while I was there. I thought about just taking some cotton yarn for dishcloths, but as I was gathering that up, I ended up grabbing a skein of Stroll by Knit Picks. I got it wound, found my needles and my basic sock pattern and headed out.

12-ish rows of ribbing and a few rows of basic knitting so far!

I love this color, too!

And I just ordered some great yarn from Eat.Sleep.Knit. as well for the Black Friday sale. Yum!! I can't wait to see it!

I'm linking up with Judy at Patchwork Times.

How could they not be perfect -- you chose the right color.

Love the yarn choice.

I love the way that yarn is pooling. This is going to be a fun pair of socks. I resisted the ESK sale and I'm kind of sad about it now. :(

That sock is looking great!

Love that purple, it is one of my favorite colors to wear.

Have a wonderful and Blessed day
