I've only got about one pattern repeat left before starting on the heel! I'll be traveling this weekend so you'll have to wait to hear about my progress until after the holiday. Everyone keeps telling me it's not nearly as hard as it looks, here's hoping they're right!
A few more rows of sock progress tonight. I took a close-up photo this time so you can see the texture. I know I've said it before, but I really like the way this pattern is turning out so far.
I made a bunch of progress over the weekend, and a little more tonight too. I was hoping to get to the heel but I still have a few rows to go. I've been comparing it to a store-bought sock I really like to try to estimate the size so I don't have to keep... Continue Reading →
After working on crochet and knitting last night I'm back to just knitting tonight. I thought I might switch over to working on the snood for a while but the socks are so addictive!
I can't believe that the last time I worked on this was in January. It's been sitting in my closet this whole time just waiting for me. I had forgotten how soft it is. This is a nice break from knitting for a few days, and an easy mindless pattern so that I can watch... Continue Reading →
I worked on my sock while watching Gentleman Jack tonight. HBO knows just how to get to me (put a handsome smart lady in a top hat). I can tell I'm getting better with my knitting because I can actually look up at the TV some while I am working. Someday I'd like to be... Continue Reading →
On days when I only get a row or two of knitting done I almost feel like I am letting you down, dear readers. I'm enjoying the process of knitting this sock so far but it's not very satisfying to post pretty pictures when you can barely see the progress I've made from day to... Continue Reading →
I got a bunch of work done on this sock over the weekend. This pattern is really enjoyable, it's just complicated enough to be interesting without being painful. I hope I can keep up this pace, soon I'll have to figure out how the heck to make the heel.
Hooray for sock progress! I've done a couple repeats of the pattern so you can actually see it now. It is looking good. I'm not sure how well it will fit but that's why this is a learning process. At least I can fit it over my foot so it is not too tiny.
I'm back to normal life which means I'm back to only having small bits of time to knit. Socks seem to be very compatible with that problem. It is very quick to pick it up and knit a row or two. It's definitely enjoyable so far, but I have a while to go before I... Continue Reading →
This is it. I finally got brave enough to start knitting a pair of socks. I have no idea how they might turn out but I'm happy I am confident enough to try. I looked back through some old posts and it was just about a year ago that I was starting to knit a... Continue Reading →
Hooray! I actually finished it a couple days ago, but was busy traveling to visit with friends so you had to wait to see it. I am generally happy with it, but I wish I had used a less busy yarn so the cables would stand out more. They were a lot of work and... Continue Reading →
