My toe-up socks using Dave’s colorway, ‘Nana’s Geraniums’. I’m really not a pink kinda gal, but I love geraniums and as I work with this yarn, I can just imagine the flowers that might have inspired this yarn. I’m only 1 inch away from the heel. Wish me luck!
In other news … I tried to change my wordpress theme but my blog roll and webring info did not transfer and I’m not even sure what to search for to find a possible answer.
The Cabin Cove Yarn KAL! Click the button and join in the fun! Fall in love with the colors! No pressure. Just fun!
Why am I considering joining Sockapalooza? *shakes head* Well … we’ll see if I actually do it when signups begin.
There’s a possible KAL re: Dave’s Cabin Cove yarn. I think it’s a great idea. (Go Here!!) But … I’ve had my own personal knit-a-long going for quite some time. *grin* It would be nice to join other knitters who enjoy his yarn.
I’m still knitting my socks – They are about 5 inches long so far…. hopefully I’ll be at the heels soon. I’m looking forward to completing these socks. I’ve found a couple of errors but I’m not ripping anything out on these. Who says they have to be perfect? I put too much pressure on myself the last time I was working on these. This time… it’s all about the knitting and learning experience. (and the yarn )
Tomorrow is Friday! Have a great day!!
Welcome to the new home of my knitting blog! A new name for a new year. (I never really liked the other one anyway. )
Here’s what I’ve been up to:
I’ve worked a little bit on my ribbed scarf:
(In cased you’ve forgotten, the pattern is here -PDF)
so… it’s a little bit longer. I like scarves … but for some reason I don’t enjoy knitting them.
I’ve also been crocheting as well:
Pattern is by Denise Black in the book 24-Hour Crochet Projects ed by Rita Weiss.
Now … my first goal of the year? Toe-up socks … again… holes or no holes in the heel. I mean…
I’ve got to use all that Cabin Cove sock yarn that is the majority of my stash, right?
Talk to you soon!!!
