Testing, testing, 1,2,3!  The site has been moved to a new host and I’ve switched from to  I keep going back and forth on which is prefereable.  Certainly the .com is the most widely used website extention.  At any rate, the .ca will send you to the right place too.  My email address from the Bee’s Knees Knits website should be working again too for anyone who might have been trying to get ahold of me.

Orion socks

I finished a pair of socks while my sites were down for the count.  These computer socks were knit top down with a garter stitch short-row heel from Lucy Neatby’s Cool Socks Warm Feet book along with a matching garter stitch short-row toe – neither of which can be seen in the photo!  We were on Granville Island on Thursday looking at the ducks and meeting up with our favourite friends who came for a visit from the Sunshine Coast.  This photo was taken just in front of the duck pond.

Project Specs:
Yarn: Regia Tip & Top Colour (Top Orion) purchased from Shelley at Fun Knits on Quadra Island.  It’s a cotton/wool blend sock yarn and I liked how they felt the first time I wore them – not itchy!
Pattern: loosely based on Lucy Neatby’s Timberline Toes pattern in Cool Socks Warm Feet.
