Latvian Dances

I finished the Latvian socks last night.  The pattern was almost perfect, considering all the charts that came with it.  I would recommend Red Bird to anyone.  The pattern did not have the two colors on the toes or bottom of the heel.  That was my doing.   These socks took less time to make than my red socks.  The increases and decreases in the red socks slowed me down.  Knowing how to hold yarn in either hand made these go fast and I am very happy with them. 

I’ve started another pair of socks.  The color is not to my liking, but the yarn feels wonderful.  The directions are a little strange.  The writer did not use standard abbreviations and some of the explanations are not well thought out. Perhaps, they were never proof read by an impartial subject.  I would probably drop this club and just get Red Bird more often, but they always send such great yarn.  What do I do?

We had a bit of snow this afternoon.  It was gone in a couple of hours.  But it certainly was pretty to look at while it lasted.

Free Entrelac Hat Pattern—1000 Hits

December 9, 2008

Gee, thanks, guys.  I only wish that I knew who you were.  I should do something to celebrate.  How about another free pattern?  What should it be?  How about the matching scarf?   I also have a couple of sock patterns, one of which has an entrelac cuff.  I’ll have to dig through my stuff.

I finished my red socks yesterday at knitting group.  Afterward, I went out to dinner with one of the girls and we had a great time.

This is the first really cold day we’ve had since last winter.  It stayed in the upper twenties.  I had to cut my walk short this morning.  I was too stiff.  Also, the frost on the creek never melted.  It was unbelievably quiet.
