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 [...]

Mishmash

Quick Madder Ribbed socks update… I haven’t been able to work on them very much, but I plan to finish them both by tomorrow evening. Fingers crossed, except when knitting!

I have a BUSY weekend coming up. On Saturday, my parents and I are going to

Tentative Plans

ATTN Spring Feet Sock Swap Pal: I responded to your comment re: color; you can see it here at the post bottom. : )

I’ve been thinking about my current WIPs and what I want or need to knit this summer.

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 [...]

Not Math Smart

Madder Ribbed Update: I’m experiencing that sneaking feeling that I will be frogging these. I’m keeping them in their travel bag for a couple more days until I take a good look and make my decision.

A few days ago I said I was going to take a break from socks… at the time I typed [...]

A Two-Part WIP

Six Sox KAL update: I finished the Sixth Sense socks this morning! I tried a couple of quick snapshots but they were terrible. I haven’t been having much luck with pictures lately… I’ll try again later today.

I’m not going to start a new pair of socks just yet. I do have the orange Madder Ribbed [...]

Orange and Yellow, some of the time

I wanted to post this yesterday, but couldn’t… my wireless connection with Comcast was acting up all weekend. I finally became fed up and watched some TV and knit some more on the Sixth Sense socks.

This ribbed pair is my take along project for mall walking (MOA). The weather is marvelous today and I think [...]
