I finished my very first pair of socks!
I wore them to work last week – in clogs with rolled up jeans so I could show off – and I got tons of compliments. I really love them. My sweet georgia yarn is so soft! And really, with Sensational Knitted Socks and Socks on Two Circulars it was hard to screw up (although I tried). The colourway goes really nicely with my rocket dog clogs and gives me a great excuse to wear them both (even though falling in these clogs is always a little too close).
I was so proud I even showed them off around my house…snowbunnie went to sleep!
Baby Girl asked me to make her a matching pair. I made mine so short I think I have enough yarn to do just that. I made mine short – because even though it’s just knitting I was so anxious to get to the heel I just needed to get there as soon as possible.
I used the very first pattern in Sensational Socks with a 2×2 rib. It was so fun! It doesn’t take forever and in the end you have this amazing object – I can see knitting a lot of socks!
i was so excited to have a package slip waiting for me at the post office.
my secret pal sent this super cute book…
So in all the craziness of last week – gallery install, show opening, paper trails for days – our car broke down. We only have one car, it broke down about 45 minutes away and it took a week to fix.
My fabulous boss was amazing and lent me a car for the whole week!
I knit her this little dishcloth. The pattern is from Melissa’s Knitting Pages and I originally saw the link at whip up. The cloth has a little house pattern in it, although it’s hard to see with the shifting colors. It was pretty cute, easy and fun to make!
Sunday was sunny with fresh snow. I went snowboarding in the morning. I hiked up to the top of Long Shot – took this picture – and then rode the longest run on the mountain – about 3 miles. It was the best I’ve ever done on that run – like flying!
so i’m halfway through my first sock ever. i don’t want to admit how long it took me to get to this point (there was lots of undoing and re-knitting). i’m moving forward again though – and i have to say i’m amazed – it’s like a sock!
So I finally bought my Addi Turbos last weekend. I started my first sock last night with my Sweet Georgia yarn. I’m using both Socks Soar and Sensational Knitted Socks. We’ll see how it goes..
I completely forgot that a week or so ago…
Yea! My Sampler arrived with the coolest stuff. As soon as I read about The Sampler in Bust I couldn’t wait for another subscription to come up. I feel like this is the life we lead in craft-land – making way too much stuff and not always knowing what to do with it.
It’s full of the cutest cards, buttons, soaps – everything! I just love it (and I hope to donate too)!
