I Washed my Socks

June 12, 2011

All twenty-nine pairs.  Olive was not impressed.

 I also felted my vest and it fits again.  It’s a Lucy Neatbby pattern.  I used a heavier yarn than was called.  It order to judge the size, I swatched a triangle or two and made it two sizes smaller.  I am so glad that I made it with wool so I could shrink it.  I never thought I would lose weight.  Retiring and living better certainly helped.

I finished my Social Network socks and started another pair, but I have yet to take a picture.  They’re all ready 3/4 along. 

The yarn is Socks That Rock medium weight(dk).  They were a lot of fun to make and knit up quickly.  I won’t be wearing them until Winter as they are quite heavy.  The next pair is fun too.  Wait ’til you see them!

Since it has been so hot, I’ve been working indoors on my little quilt.  I thought the top was finished until I laid it on my dining room table.  It dawned on me that if I added one more row of blocks, it would look good on the table.  Since it is Cora’s favorite napping place, I like to keep it covered.  I managed to find enough scraps to make them, but now I think I’ll have to patch the back.  Oh well.

 

The Network was so Slow……

May 28, 2011

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.
