Can you believe how quick the weeks are going !
So much to do and so little time!
Thankfully this week I seemed to be back to my normal speed, which I liked much better than last weeks sluggish speed, I guess I like to hurtle along at speed lol.
Last weeks aims were fairly simple to finish the first sock of Caoimhe’s and cast on the next. I’m pleased to say I managed this and the first fits perfectly, woo hoo way to go me lol. I’ll show a picture of Caoimhe’s happy feet when I have both socks complete.
|Caoimhe’s finished sock and next one started.|
I meant to say I learned the Old Norwegian cast on when I started this pair of socks as it said it had a very elastic foundation row and I have to say I like it. I’d be interested to hear how you all cast on or other good cast on methods for socks. I’m hoping to get well on with this second sock this week as there is a queue now for some 🙂
The second aim of the week was to cast on the Slytherin Beanie for Dominic but he kindly gave up his spot so I could knit the Ravenclaw one for Alan in time for his birthday. Alan assumes I’m working on the Dominic’s and we have not corrected his assumption as it will be a surprise for him then. This I am hoping to finish this week and then move onto Dominic’s.
Thank you for all the lovely comments last week, as ever they make me smile.
Kepanie, I will look into that Teach Yourself Visually Sock Knitting book. I have seen there is a new release upcoming of Folk Socks, I’m liking the look of this to so we shall see. You see what started with one itty bitty pair of socks .. An Addiction ! lol
Sandy all the children are at home my eldest is aged 11 and then its a step formation down to the baby who is 19 months. I have a few more years of them at home around me and I’m doing a Scarlett O Hara and just not thinking about when they start to move from home…I’ll think about that tomorrow lol.
I’m so glad some of you were also able to get some of the sock yarn from Lidl, I to would not have know about it but for my friend Tricia.
We have a new yarn store open in the next town to mine and its lovely to go in and browse the yarn in person as most of my yarn I have to get online so I suppose I’m not doing to bad when I pick it out and as of yet have not gotten something I’ve disliked, but it does take me forever to pick yarn out lol.
I’ve been looking at my list and I know I’m not going to get all complete this year (list is under the tab Knitting Year of Projects at the top). I have socks I need to add to the list but I just can’t decide what to take off for this year and add to next years list. Perhaps I’ll just work away at the list and move over what is not complete.
Looking forward to catching up with all of your projects this week.
