This past week I’ve been steadily working away on my How I Make my Socks project. They are coming along great. First sock is finished and I’m pleased with the finished sock. I kept the striping pattern going from the leg through instep and foot part which just gives it a better look I think than having just knit away and have had it all a bit crazy looking. The ball of yarn is as crazy as I want this project to be. My main problem with them was I didn’t like the ball of yarn unknit, I mean look at it! Now that I’m seeing at least the first sock knit up they have grown on me and I like them but I’ll still be glad to have a knit pair of socks from that ball! 😉
The weather here has been dreadful and I’ve not gotten the finished photos taken of my next pattern that is currently with my tech editor, I’ve still got some time but I’d like to have them done and in the bag. Let’s hope that can happen this week.
While waiting for a photoshoot to happen though I have been working away on some other charts and patterns and I’m hoping to get the next pattern in my schedule written up. This sample is knit already so it just really needs bringing together, another task for this week.
