More Postcards & "Socker" Season

Here are a few more fiber postcards. All of the fabric for these cards was "created" by me (through dyeing, painting, monoprinting, screenprinting, or digital printing) except the pieced fuschia/orange/purple backgrounds which are commercial fabrics.

In knitting news I'm on a sock bender. After all, it is "socker" season! I'm going to lots of soccer practices, and they're the perfect venue for sock knitting. I finished 2 socks this weekend, and just need to kitchener closed a third. (Due to my fascination with trying new sock yarns that makes a total of, ahem, one pair plus 2 non matched socks. The second socks, plus two others, are in progress.) I also enjoyed a little yarn shopping yesterday with some fellow knit bloggers. Lolly has pictures on her blog. It was great meeting Minty from Philadelphia, and Heather whom I hadn't met before, as well as seeing some of the other gals from our group (Jen, Coleen, and Sarah). Hopefully my husband will stop traveling so much on Mondays and I'll be able to make more regular meetings!

More great cards! I am almost ready to pull out the knitting. I started a sweater for Miles last winter and he has grown a few inches. I have to start over!!

I'm doing the same thing!! Socks are addicting, and I'm supposedly making them for others, but I love them all and can't part with them! I've finished one pair and half of another....good to keep your hands busy while waiting or driving!
