Once in a Blue Moon

There was a Blue Moon on December 31st and Tina from Blue Moon Fiber Arts thought it would be fun to celebrate the full moon by having a world-wide cast on. I went diving in my BMFA stash to pick out a blue yarn for the Blue Moon cast on. I decided on Bella Coola in lightweight.

I picked Angee from my Sock Innovation book by Cookie A. I really liked the pattern, but I found that I really needed to pay attention to it. It wasn't difficult, I just couldn't quite memorize it and had to keep referring to the chart which slowed me down a bit.

I knit the lower sock first, then made all the hats, and then came back to do the 2nd sock. Clearly my tension changed from sock 1 to sock 2, but I decided I didn't care enough to try to match it. I'm just thrilled to have finished something for myself! I think I'll wear them tomorrow!


  1. The colors are beautiful, and no one will check the gauge when they are on your feet! Angee is on my list, too, but right now I'm working on Kai-Mei.

  2. I love your Blue Moon socks! And I always think it's better when they're not identical twins. A little variety is a good thing :)

  3. Awesome, Dianne! And you even picked something BLUE. Angee is one of my favorites from Cookie's book, too, though I've not been able to get to trying that one yet.
