Creative Journeys

A blog to track my crafting journeys. Right now I am stuck on knitting, especially socks. I also enjoy scrapbooking, cross-stich, beading, and trying anything new.

I started a pair of Fair Isle socks in the beginning of February. I have never done any fair isle before. These socks were a lot of fun to knit. I will definitely be knitting more fair isle socks. Here goes the pattern was from knit picks it is the Simple Stripes Fair Isle Socks. The yarn is the Sweetart colorway in the simple stripes yarn (discontinued) and the navy colorway in the essential sock yarn.
