I Tried

June 18, 2011

This is as far as I got.

Then I pulled it out.  I like the way the squares look.  The back looks like crap.  I tried twice.  It had been a while since I had made any toe-up socks.  Of course, now I remember why.  They never fit my toes the way that I like.  Anyway, the pattern was lacking and I was tired of having to read into it.  I’m definitely going to make entrelac socks with this yarn, but they will be from the cuff down.  I’ll probably plain knit the foot since I have a lot of clogs.

Here’s my last pair.  No.  That sounds like I am never going to make socks again.  I have discovered the joy of custom hand-knit socks and there is no looking back. Notice anything?  No?  The kit came with two patterns.  I liked them both, so I made one of each.

The Network was so Slow……

It was making me crazy.  It was worse than dial up.  Sometimes this happens.  But not for a day.  Sweetums went around checking connections and unplugging and replugging because “THEY” always tell you to do that first.  So we finally had to give up and call.  Of course, they had to ask more dumb questions.  And, finally, we are up and running again.  I had important stuff to do yesterday, like pay bills and order crap.  I wasn’t exactly in the mood to blog after that.  And, well, it was nice outside.







I finished the Scrolls Socks on Tuesday.  The wrong side looks as good as the right side.

Here’s my first from Rocking Sock Club.  They are a lot of fun to knit, but too thick to wear any time soon.  I hadn’t made this type of heel for a while.  It was a little slow at first.  My third kit should be coming any day now, so I should get back to it.
