First of all, I see by my stats that a lot of people check out this here blog. I don’t know who’s reading my blog lately, and I’m definitely missing all the comments I used to get – so please, leave me a note in the comments and let me know you’ve stopped by … I’d love to know who’s reading =) On to more interesting things …
A knitting post! Imagine that!
What with all the schoolin’ I done been doing, there’s been very little time to knit! I have been working on my first pair of socks since … well, for a while, anyways!
Here they (it) are (is):
Brad thought I was in some sort of knitterly denial and that the sock looked too big to fit on my leg – boy did I prove him wrong! I whipped off the sock that I had on and pulled this puppy up – and surprise, it fits!! Wuhoo! (I then also promptly took a pic, as I realized I hadn’t taken any yet!) I’m only going to make it long enough that it won’t slouch too much in the winter boots, so I’m about 3/4 of the way done the leg part. I’m a bit afraid of the heel, I must say! I got the pattern from Lettuce Knit (it came free with my STR yarn). I was going to use the Yarn Harlot‘s sock pattern, but I loaned the book out and haven’t got it back yet. So, this pattern it is! I’ve managed to snap one of my double pointed needles (DPNs), but thankfully one of the ladies at work had a nail file =) I think maybe a pair of metal DPNs would come in handy for sock knitting, as apparently I stress the needles out too much!!
P.S. Oh, and btw, today I ate Kraft Dinner for lunch … for those of you who know me well, you will know that this is abnormal. The thought of the stuff generally makes me feel … well, ill. But I was craving it – blame it on the baby!!
P.P.S. I don’t know what’s up with the generous returns in the post – there’s not normally that much of a gap, but I can’t see the problem! LOL
