I knew this wasn't the best choice . . .

You know I joined Rav's Cookie A Designed Socks KAL.
And, you know I chose to use this self-striping yarn
which I knew wasn't a good yarn to knit any kind of a pattern and expect it to show up.
Can you see any pattern besides the ribbed cuff?

These sox are destined to be frogged [rip-it, rip-it, rip-it out]
back to the ribbed cuff.

I've found some solid color yarn that I'll begin 
once more making Cauchy.

I'll post photos of the new sox/yarn as soon as 
I do more than Cast On.


Michele of     michele made me   tells us all about 
her newest Brain Wave.

This gal really comes up with some creative ideas and this one is right at the top of the list.


Daughter Deb and I spent this afternoon sewing.
Cut 400+ inches of 2.5" binding strips.
GO! figure ! ! ! !   We used the GO! ! ! 

Once she squared up her Patriotic Stars quilt
she was able to get the binding sewn on to the back of the quilt.
We attempted to use Pat Sloan's machine method of finishing the binding but we were not successful.

We have not given up on Pat's way and we will
give it a try again down the line.

Hugs & ♥♥♥s


  1. You knew that yarn wasn't going to work. At least you are familiar with the pattern now. Consider this a trial run for the real KAL. Not familiar with Pat Sloan's binding method. You can tell me sometime.

  2. See if you can reply to this one. I signed in using my normal email instead of gmail to see if that was the problem.

  3. Hmmmmm! I knew something was wrong with the sox - I liked the color, the stripes and the pattern. See, I'm just not a sox person.

    Hugs - Marie

  4. Better luck with the next lot, actually though these look great to me (but I'm no knitter!). x

  5. Hi Sweet Friend,

    I'm no knitter either and they look good to me...I love the colors!

    Thanks for the visit and sweet words! Tomorrow I plan on enjoying the day and staying in the light...thanks for being a great Soul Filler!
