Socks Socks Socks! (and stocking)
Ok, so I am a day late on the blogging (and I am watching American Idol, too!) But I had to post some socks that I just FINISHED! Here are Hedgerow Socks by Jane Cochran (made from Dream in Color Smooshy, Strange Harvest):
The only change I made was to make a flat toe instead of round and to shorten the heel a bit (I have teeny feet). All in all a wonderful knit that I will do again.
I also got some Misti Alpaca sock yarn from Fiddlehead Yarns in Kenosha, WI (love Mindy's shop!)
This is the one of the best sock yarns I have knitted up and I have tried a lot of sock yarns! Love the way the colors just stripe randomly!
And, I think I am the only sock knitter that hasn't knitted a jaywalker...but here is my rendition in Cherry Tree Hill Supersock, Birches:
And for my niece, I am knitting up a Judy's Colors stocking. Leg all done, just need to do the heel and foot:
All in all, train riding has upped my knitting time and I LOVE IT! I also love that I have a set time to arrive and leave work--not as much working later because I can (and to avoid traffic). Anyway, I need to knit some more. Next week I will post my latest sweater project (tangled yoke) and what I want my next big project to be. I'll be back!
