I am busy working on socks, toe up socks to be exact.
I started my Trilobite Socks last Friday and today I bound off the first sock ~ yippee! I have my second skein of yarn caked, but it has so much blue in the yarn it would not be a perfect mate. After going through stashes on Ravelry, I found a skein of that matched almost perfectly and the owner of the skein was willing to part with it.
So, I’m in a waiting mode to cast on the second sock but here’s look at my finished first sock :)
I have also casted on a vanilla toe up using Wendy Knits Toe-up Slip-Stitch Heel Basic Sock Pattern . A few of you may recognize the yarn I’m using and if you don’t, it’s the yarn I was using for a pair of Vanilla Latte Socks that rather got frogged last week. After really looking at my sock, which had sat on the needles untouched for almost two months, I decided that I really did not like the sock. So, it was frogged and the yarn was re-caked, both skeins actually, and I measured out the stripes on both cakes for a starting point, which I hope will give a matching pair of striped socks.
My Misty Pearl vest in Knit Picks Cotlin is on hold right now but I will pick this project back up this weekend.
What have you been working on?
Until next time, happy knitting, crocheting, spinning and crafting!
