Socks, socks, socks
So that has motivated me to keep on knitting those socks. The measurements this year have 3 of the boys with 12" long feet! That's a lot of knitting. This gray pair is 12". Not real exciting unless you have big, cold feet.
Then I finally finished darning in all the yarn ends on a 10 1/2" pair of socks knit from leftover small balls of yarn. Of course, there are more socks on the needles. too.
Today is the first day of our year-long Afghan Knitalong on the Holiday Mystery Gifts Yahoo group. This project features strips of 11 different pattern stitches developed by 11 designers. Each month a new strip will be released as a free pattern. This way folks can knit smaller amounts spread out over a year and have a completed afghan at the end! Look for my strip in a few months.
Also on the Holiday Mystery Gifts group this year, we are releasing 24 different little patterns for ornaments for an Advent Calendar of Ornaments project. Soon I'll be able to share with you what I've developed as part of this knitalong.
All's well here in Guatemala as the countdown to tearing ourselves away from the dock continues...20 days...
Your socks are lovely and even better that they are going to the needy. Thank you for the link to the afghan KAL ! Oh I wish I had the time... You have a very nice blog.
Beautiful! I'm knitting my very first Toe Up socks, they will be my hubby's very first hand knit socks.Post a Comment
