Six Sox Knitalong has posted October/November adult size patterns: Fluted Banister Socks. I will be using the pattern women's medium, sport weight yarn. I have picked another Novita Nalle yarn for these socks. Pics will follow once I have something to show.

Meanwhile. I have a dice bag now.

I have myriad of single skeins of Novita Merino in various colors. A couple of years ago I bought Simply Socks by Anna Zilboorg. As soon as I got the book I was inspired to use all my odd skeins knitting socks from her Heart Crook pattern (pg. 58). My attention span being what it is, when I got to the heel of the first sock I was utterly bored with the project and put it aside.

Fast forward to today. I'd become involved with role playing and needed a bag for the dice. When I was sorting through the yarn today I noticed this sad half-sock and bingo! a dice bag was born. All I needed to do was to graft the opening shut, make a string and weave in all the bazillion ends.
