Besides working on NaNo and now trying to edit a couple of my novels, These are the fun things I’m working on:

A rust color sock of wool on a CinDWood fine gauge, 56 pegs. I’m loving toe-up with the Kitchener cast-on. I can’t decide which cuff I’m wanting to do. Well, I guess it will be a surprise for all of us!

 

This is a fuzzy soft yarn. Sometimes, most of the time, LOL, I don’t know what it is as there are no labels on a lot of the donated yarn. I thought this would make a fun, soft hat. I did the two-by-two (two knits, two purls) brim the rest is the flat knit stitch. This is on the large KB fine gauge. So soft. It’ll probably be done by Friday!

I’m hoping this will be a pretty Boho colored hat. I don’t know if you can tell that blue is turquoise, burgundy, gold, and a sort of magenta. We’ll see. I’m making it up as I go with two strands (two colors) adding the turquoise a little at a time as I don’t have much of it. Oh, this is the KB fine gauge the next step down from the orange one. This is the set. And now I remember the orange is 80 pegs the white is 72.

But wait, there’s more!

Again, another toe-up sock on the KB Adjustable Sock Loom. This is just acrylic yarn. By the way, I find the Kitchener cast on harder on this loom. In fact, I have a harder time with the metal pegs as if it isn’t a bright color then the metal reflects and it is hard to tell if I have the whole strand of yarn.Β  BUT this is a strong loom and can handle a tighter tension. It will break the knitter, not the loom!

More socking it to ya!

 

Why do I always wait until it is dark to try and take pictures? This gray yarn is soft and has flecks of white, black and pink or lavender. It is bumpy-ish. I have no idea if these will wear well as more than just house slippers as I don’t know what the yarn is. But I’m making two pairs. This is the KB His/Hers sock loom set. I finished the sock you see on the orange, what looks like yellow on the right side, loom. I still have the heel and cuff to go. I started another the purple (His) loom. I’ve just barely got the toe done. The cuff is four-by-four. I kind of like that look.

Though I like this set. My hand like it, now, too. But for a beginner making socks, it can be tragic. I broke a couple pegs when I first started. I’ve used Gorilla Glue to put them back and working oh so gingerly I haven’t broken them again. They are inexpensive so I plan to replace them sometime.

 

I do have yarn to make socks with size 1 knitting cable needles but I feel I should finish a couple of things before I get started. I’m so new at needle knitting that I feel I need to stay with it until I get it right and have a good rhythm going.

Okay, back to the editing. Ugh! It was great having your encouragement along the way during NaNoWriMo. I’ll try to share some of that when I feel it is somewhat people-ready.
