Making Progress!

Thanks again for the compliments about my recently completed Madder Ribbed socks. I appreciated them and enjoyed these socks very much (even though I had to rip them out and restart)… the patterning is simple yet entertaining and attractive.

Shepherd’s Harvest 2006

Saturday, my parents and I went to Shepherd’s Harvest. It was overcast and cold enough that we wished we had mittens or gloves. (There were some for sale, but we didn’t buy any.) So, no MDSW good weather mojo, but at least it wasn’t pouring rain like it did at NHSW (look at the 2nd [...]

Madder Ribbed Socks

Ta da, here are a couple pictures of my most recently completed pair. These will be a gift later this year. So I first tried them on for an “action” shot before washing.

Surprise, Surprise!

The Madder Ribbed socks are finished! Pictures to come on Tuesday once they’re dry.

I didn’t finish them on Friday night as I planned. Instead, I took a break to make a headband based on Knit and Tonic Wendy’s Dream Swatch Head Scarf. I had about half a skein of that yummy Alchemy Bamboo in Rust [...]

One Skein SP Questionnaire

I was contacted by my 1 Skein Secret Pal (whom I’ll call Atlantis, if that’s OK; great name!) and I emailed off my responses.

Back on Track!

I’m so happy! Finally, I frogged what I had knitted on these socks last Thursday.

At first, I frogged only halfway to see if they could be saved this way, but I still wasn’t happy, so RIP, everything went. I was in a positive mood, so I restarted immediately and have been working on them since.

Desperately Seeking Two-Point-Five!

A couple weeks ago, I procured a set of Crystal Palace bamboo double-pointed needles, 6-inch length, in US #1.5 (2.5mm). My gauge often is just a bit too tight on US1 and a bit too loose on US2 for most socks. I hoped these US1.5 needles would be the answer. I frogged (sadly) the Madder [...]
