Sock Fest



The quartet of sox were knitted on my blue round loom. They are all in the same stage - - ready to close up the toe to the body of the sock.
I didn't like the way the instructions for this particular sox pattern closed the opening, so I unfinished them and found my very old directions on weaving. However, these directions will take some concentration and the past several evenings we've been listening to audiobook mysteries and they've taken my concentration.
The 'weaving' instructions were from a knitting class I took at a Sears store sometime in the sixties. You know it was some time ago when Sears sold fabric and yarn. The lone sock on the circular knitting needle is a project begun right around the same time. It doesn't look like it'll every be one of a pair. Sad, but true.
Renee will be at the Alaska Fiber Festival this Spring. The Festival is to be held in Anchorage. Is this gal going to be wide-traveler by the time she comes home to mid-Missouri.
My drawstring bag purse, Mid-Summer's Bloom, will be on display in Dade City, Florida at the Pioneer Museum this coming weekend. And then off to Tampa to be in the Original Sewing and Quilt Expo toward the end of February. The second weekend of March it'll be in the Atlanta Original Sewing and Quilt Expo.
I just attempted to 'Spell Check' this, however, doesn't appear Google is in the mood. So hope I caught my typos.
