Katherine the Great
I like to think of myself as a storyteller. Mostly I tell stories about knitting.

When it comes to Hunter Hammersen’s patterns, I tend to be a bit of a fangirl. I haven’t made a Team Hunter T-shirt yet, but don’t think I haven’t considered it.
Gray socks
I’ve been admiring these grayish socks on her blog for months….to the degree that I contacted her to see when the pattern might be out (I may have a problem). There was a moment when she thought I was peaking in her windows to see what she was knitting, but it turns out these lace socks are just more light blue than gray in real life. Nevertheless, I’m sure there are days when she’s comforted by the fact that I live in Texas.
Fast forward. She called for testers and check out what’s on my needles!
Gold Socks
The gray (light blue) lacy socks in Madeline Tosh Merino Light – winter wheat!

Ps. To see what other folks are working on, go check out Tami’s Amis and Small Things Yarn Along.

    As long as you don’t have any Kathy Bates, Misery moments, we’re in good shape. :-D

    The socks look like they’re going to be beautiful!

      I’m pretty pleased with them, thank you.

      I don’t have near the presence of Kathy Bates. That movie scares me enough that I’ve never seen the whole thing.

  6. I’m a FanGirl too! I’ve queued up Ensnared and matched up the yarn. I’m hoping to cast on next week. Your socks are gorgeous, and the yarn colour is to die for!
