Feather and Fan Socks

July 26, 2010

Another nice pair of socks.  For me.  I followed the pattern until I came to the toe and made a rounded toe.  I like it better than anything else I’ve tried.

A short swift rain storm came through yesterday evening.  The temperature has been more normal all day.  We were able to walk down to the pier this morning without passing out.  I also got some weeding in.  I’m happy, but pretty tired.

Finally Finished

February 3, 2010

At this point, I thought I had finished.  The sleeves came to the same point as the picture in the book.  I must have tried it on at least six times, trying to tell myself that it was fine.  But it wasn’t.  I like sleeves to be too long.  So, what do I do?  I make cuffs.

It hangs out a little in the back, but I can live with that.  I also sewed in hooks and eyes down the front.  It’s finally finished and I’m finally happy. 

While I was away, I started another pair of socks.  I didn’t want to take the sweater with me.  The pattern is from Socks, Socks,  Socks on page 70.  I used more stitches and smaller needles.  I may also change the heel.  The pattern is relatively simple and fun. 

I want to get back to my Stars sweater.  It depends on how many cats I have in my lap.

For a change, there was more snow on the shore than in Baltimore.  I was surprised to see all this.  Cora has been having fun.
