Here I am, twiddling my thumbs at work again and catching up with my blogging. Yesterday was the mailing deadline for the latest challenge for CIC. I packed up a box with two vests and ten pairs of socks; didn't realize how many socks I had accumulated since the last shipment! I have shown off some of these already, but not all:

The vest on the left is made with Lamb's Pride Worsted, and is big enough to count towards the "bigger kids" goal. The one on the right is made with two strands of hand dyed sock yarn worked together, and is for a smaller child.

The two pair of socks on the upper right are for smaller kids, but the remaining eight are for larger children. Most of these were made with yarn generously given to me by others. Not only is it nice to be able to knit away without worrying about breaking the bank, but it's fun to mix and match colors, finding creative ways to use what I have.

Speaking of generosity, I recently received this windfall from another CIC-Knit member:

Can you believe the size of that pile? Boatloads of tapestry yarn, plus several skeins of mohair and some heavy worsted weight, just begging to be knit into warm woolies for CIC. Fellow CIC-knit member bskmoon received this generous donation, which was more than she could use, so she shared it with me! The generosity of knitters continues to astound me. I'm itching to get started sorting and planning. So much potential!

Wow, great bunch of stuff! Love all the red toed socks, they're so cute. I've used your sock pattern and really like it, it is very well written and easy to understand.
