I've been 'enabled'!
have convinced me to join
Susan B Anderson's
They are knitting Patchwork Socks.
I had been toying with the idea of using my sock yarn leftovers to make some sox anyway.
So thought, why not.
Decided to join Mel, Nicole and all those other Ravelers with a like mind who are knitting with leftovers to make their Patchwork sox.
For my pair, I knit a toe-up stockinett sock with an afterthought heel.
However, just for the Challenge of it -
I knit this pair one at a time magic loop.
First time in recent memory that I've done that.
They flew off my needle -
cast on last Monday and finished today!!!
Oh, before I forget
I want to let you know that
Nicole is a video podcaster.
She hosts Positively Knittting Podcast
you can find her episodes by following this link.
She's what I would call a 'spontaneous knitter' with a positive attitude
and a great sense of humor.
Susan B. Anderson designs knits.
Many of the participants in her Patchwork Socks KAL are using her How I Knit Socks blog post.
Or you can follow this link directly to the post.
Just as soon as I publish this post I am going to print out Susan's post so I can follow her method for my next pair of Patchwork Socks.
Always up for another method of knitting heels.
In the meantime,
as everyone must be aware
Sunday was the first day of
Being the good camper that I am
I cast on Project 1
first thing in the morning and have made a little progress.
Had to finish my sox before I can concentrate on The Hogwarts Express Shawl.
You Harry Potter fans will recognize the 'hogwarts' reference.
This evening will be spend knitting on Hogwarts.
Here it is, the end of the Memorial Day Weekend with a return to the rest of the week tomorrow
Each of us with thoughts of the great three-day holiday.
We spent a wonderful afternoon visiting with
DD#2. What a way to spend the day.
Good Times with lots of laughter.
Hope your memories will carry you though 'til our next three day holiday
or even 4th of July holiday.
