WIPWed #98: Stealth Socks and Sheep-Shaped Soap

There are three things I’ve confirmed recently:

  1. I really love slipped stitch sock patterns,
  2. Tina of Blue Moon Fiber Arts is the queen of teal colorways, and
  3. sheep-shaped soap is just about the cutest thing ever.

My Favorite Socks Ever:

Still rockin’ this pair of socks, and still absolutely loving them. Loving them so much, in fact, that I’ve cast on ANOTHER PAIR.

Stealth Socks:

The pic is blurry but the colorway, Grimm, is absolutely glorious. Tina really knows her way around teals, man, and the pooling is pretty fun on this pair. These are stealth socks because I’m trying to knit them quickly (by the end of the month) and on the sneak, for a certain someone-whom-I-live-with’s birthday. (Here’s hoping his eyes just glaze over when I go on and on about socks and won’t realize these are for him.)

Sheep-Shaped Soap:

In exciting news, I’ve added some new soap to the shop that I’m absolutely in love with. Blackberry Crumble is a goat milk soap scented with blackberry, sage, and a touch of gingersnap fragrance oils that is juicy and bright. I got a little more creative with the Peaches & Cream soap, which consists of white and peach-colored layers of goat milk soap and is scented with southern peach and cream cheese frosting fragrance oils. It smells just like a sweet, decadent, summertime dessert and is finished off with a sprinkling of red and white jojoba beads on the bottom. These soaps are so cute, I honestly can’t stand it.

That’s all from me this week! As for reading, I sped through the Outlander novella “A Leaf on the Wind of All Hallows” which gives a little insight into Roger’s parents’ past and am looking for my next read. Any suggestions? Linking up with Yarnalong and Stitch Along Wednesday.

  1. I love that second color way so much! I keep thinking I’m going to do a slip stitch pattern but have not yet…..and I’ll be putting in an order for some lotion bars in the fall. We had our end of year lunch with several teachers and I used a lotion bar and they all loved it…so I think I’ll be getting them for Christmas…mine was not one of yours, but one I got at Stitches….maybe I’ll see you at a show before then…..

  2. Have you read the Lord John Series? There are a few novellas and some shorter (at least for Diana Gabaldon) novels. I really liked them – they gave some insight into the Lord John/Jamie friendship.

  3. Gorgeous socks πŸ™‚ I’ve been working on a slip stitch pair today too, Whiz Bang socks. I think I’m going to need to frog the leg back though because the fabric isn’t stretchy enough for me to get my foot in 😦
