A picture is worth a thousand words…
Every spare moment is spent knitting (when I am not quilting, of course!). I never thought I would want to knit socks, but I have really enjoyed this! It is such a portable project and I can knit while riding in the car. I tried the “2-at-a-time” method but decided I needed to get the regular technique down pat before I could do 2… the yarns kept getting all tangled up as I was turning it back and forth trying to figure out how the 2-a-a-t works.
I’m S-L-O-W at this, but getting faster with practice. My tension is so variable that the 2 socks probably will not even be the same size… the first one is a little large on my foot, and the second one appears that it will be closer to the size I actually need.
So what is next?…. see for yourself!
I got a little carried away when I ordered yarn from Knit Picks! I really think the 2-a-a-t method will be best for me (because when you finish with one, you are finished with both of them!). I am so anxious to get started on the striped and hand-dyed yarns that I considered not finishing the blue pair. But I can’t stand the thought of wasting my time and materials, so I will persevere! My next pair WILL be made using one of the 2-a-a-t methods (either 2 circular needles or one really long circular needle).
Gussie Fay and I will be working hard today. I hope to get 2 small quilts finished today. And if you are looking at the time of this post you are thinking… “GEE… what’s she waiting on… It’s almost 11AM!” I have a little laundry to deal with and then I am off to quilt. I’m also hoping my thread order from Dallas Threads gets here so I can soon start on a really neat custom quilting job… More about that later!
Be blessed! Enjoy your Friday!
