YOP Update

Good morning bloggers!

This weeks post I’m afraid is short, its not been a very productive week. Its been a slow week knitting wise and the slump has hit the weekend also. I’m hoping next week I’m back up to full speed.

So all I have to show you this week is the progress I made on Caoimhe’s sock. It is now half an inch from the toe forming point. I love this book that I’m knitting from as it gives wonderful instructions on how to keep those holes from forming when making the gusset, you know those annoying little ones around the heel. I know I said it was a bit hop up and down the chapters but once you get the hang of that it is brilliant.

 I’ve done this with a 2×2 rib up to the heel and then a stockinette stitch from the heel up to the toe.

The book

The aim for this week is very simple to finish this sock and get the next one started and to cast on a Slytherin Beanie for Dominic, I won’t bore you showing the colours of that as you’ve all seen the green and silver here on the blog already in the scarf. lol.

Thank you all for your wonderful comments last week, I really enjoyed reading them.

Welcome to my new followers, if you have a blog and I haven’t gotten round to yours and following I will do. I find it easier to keep up with everyone by becoming a follower and then I get their updates in my blog roll lol.

In the next week or so I will be having a giveaway in my dishcloth challenge posts on Thursdays so keep an eye out on that and also Thursdays is now part of the Thursdays Book Challenge and you can check out details on that over at An Accidental Knitter

Happy knitting,

  1. Oh yes Ruth, I will keep an eye out for the dishcloth giveaway, as I am not a knitter. You do such beautiful work. Such a busy mum this week. I hope that nasty illness is out the door for good now.β™₯

  2. That's such a pretty sock! I love the colours.

  3. Gorgeous colours and that sock, it looks great!

  4. Looking good on the sock. I always feel once I've turned the heel that the sock is nearly done. It's nice the way the colours are striping up!

    The sock is looking great, lovely colors. I'm currently working on a washcloth for DD…it will complete my monthly calendar challenge for her. She loves them in the shower. One day, I hope to make some for myself. lolJust noticed a bit of your bio…7 children……..oh my. I kept busy with 1 practical perfect daughter, can't imagine having that many. Do they all live nearby (grown) or still with you?

    Is that little Miss Lizbeth's other sock you're busy with? She hasn't run off with the other one has she πŸ™‚ I'll definitely be keeping an eye open for the giveaway!

    Love that sock yarn, the colours are right up my street. Thanks btw for the heads-up on the lidls Sock-yarn as I found some in a local branch too. I picked up some for me and a friend, really exciting….not sure what I will make πŸ˜‰

    I am laughing–because a slow week for you is still more productive than a busy week for me! πŸ™‚ I don't know how you do it–especially with all those delightful little wee ones. That little sock is the sweetest little thing ever! Lucky little girl. I am looking forward to seeing your dishcloth on Thursday. I will probably not have an offering this week, which is alright because I ended up finishing one last week a week ahead of schedule.*smiles*

    YES! Good book! I love that book. I also have the Teach Yourself Visually Sock Knitting book which is a good one also but I like Ann Budd's book more.Your sock is awesome, Ruth! You can always pick up more sts for the gusset than what the books says. I got that good advice from a fellow sock knitter.Keep up your great work.
