I’m so excited about my two projects that I’ve got on the needles right now, and both are moving along quite well for me.
I decided to stop being such a “baby” about toe up socks and purchased a used copy of Socks from the Toe Up by Wendy Johnson of Wendy Knits. Wendy’s book is so wonderful and I love the step by step tutorials she included for casting on, heels and more. So last night with my book in hand, I learned how to do a Turkish cast on and started the Trilobite Socks that are in her book. I love the look of my first sock and can’t wait to finish it to start the mate! My goal is to master this method and then learn two at a time toe up.
I’m also working on my Misty Pearl vest in Knit Picks Cotlin and really loving the look. My plans this weekend is to finish the two front panels and set up the back.
So you know I love my vintage finds and today I had to share a little find that I got off Etsy. This tiny oval print is from the early 1900s and I truly love it!
The weather has been quite beautiful this week in Phoenix, even with the wind, and our back yard is in full bloom.
What projects have you been working on this week?
Until next time, happy knitting, crocheting, spinning and crafting!
