Finishing Friday


Two pairs are nearly finished. I would guess this greyish brown pair will be done tomorrow. Yay!

Eight more rounds of ribbing and these will be done. Maybe Sunday?
These are weeks from being finished.
These might be a week or so from hot off the looms.
I know, not related to knitting but our weird dark cloudy days had the hay barn in a glow. It looked like angels were singing! I know, I’m a dork. It’s the little things, right? This was a couple days ago

Finishing Friday


I wish I were farther along than I am. But I’ll take what progress I can.

One finished two-toned sock done. The mate is nearly finished, too. Yay! Oh, these are cotton. The loom is the Flexee fine-gauge loom. Kitchener Cast-on toe. German short-row heel. Two-by-two ribbing cuff. The cast-off is a crochet type. I’m not so happy with only one chain between loomed stitches. I needed more stretch for this pair of socks.
Same cotton but a different pair. Knitting on ChiaoGoo red-lace circular needles. These are Toe-up Two At A Time Socks. Now I need to learn how to do wrap-and-turn heel. I now have three pairs waiting for my brain to catch up.
These, too, are cotton. A far finger thread. The needles are thin, I think size 1? Again, these are ChiaoGoo red-lace circular needles. I expect these to take twice as long as the thicker cotton socks. At least they are starting to be more like socks and less like bras.

I’m going to post this as a place holder. Our internet isn’t working. It is even spotty on my phone. Hitting publish now.

Edit: All I got into this post last night was the paragraph just above. The pictures came through only just this morning. Now I’ll label them.

My Stream of Consciousness Saturday may have to happen on Sunday.

There is no one in the office of our internet company to help during the weekend.😒

Finishing Friday


He’s done. Need to straighten, seal, frame and send to a friend. I do love him! All-knowing dragon.
One finished, one still on the Flexee fine-gauge loom. White ribbing cuff to go. Probably finishing on the weekend.
Child’s hat nearly finished on ChiaoGoo red-lace circular needles. Another to be finished this weekend. This Fair Isle yarn is so soft.
I couldn’t resist working with the rest of the bamboo yarn. I’m hoping to have enough for a pair of socks. Toe-up Two At A Time on ChiaoGoo red-lace circular needles. 40 inch cable. 1 or 2 sized needles. It’s been a while since I looked at the package. I like the ChiaoGoo cords better than Knitters’Pride. As you can see, 2 toes started
These smaller socks on HiyaHiya Fliers. The one on the right has the beginning of a heel. 20 more rows until the heel on the left sock.
These big socks are still waiting for my learning to German short row wrap and turn. After so many times I feel confident in the decrease part but still shaky about the increase part.
These socks have been tinked so many times I finally laid a safety line. That’s the white yarn. As soon as I get quiet enough I’ll try the heel again. Same as the brownish socks. By the way, these last two are on Knitters’Pride Royale Circular Needles size 5, 47″ cord. I like the wood needle for different, but the cord is twisty and awkward.

Made it Monday


Yay! Hot off the CinDWood fine-gauge sock loom! Bamboo yarn. Someone is finally getting a Christmas gift.

Many other projects in progress. I’m so happy to have finished something!

Occasionally I share projects I’m working on, or have finished. This picture goes with the posts.

Why? Because despite me, ADD, arthritis, and other obstacles, things get done. And I feel glad. Endurance is a similar word. Hands hurting is something to be endured, even if the hobby is enjoyable. So here’s my latest batch of projects in various stages of completeness.

Done! This is a small adult. I love working with the magical Fair
Isle yarn from Willows.
And I love the pattern featured below with ChiaoGoo red-lace circulars size 6 needle.
The dragon is coming along. About 1/3 finished. Lots of eye blurring black.
I’ve been working on these for quite a while. The HiyaHiya Fliers and ChiaoGoos are tiny and hurt if I spend too much time on them but, progress!
These are nearing the cuff stage so may be finished soon.
These are at cuffs now, so finished product may happen before long.
Started another hat. This is the pattern. The Fair Isle yarn from Willow is so soft!

Endurance of lack of Internet or streaming services is the hardest part of all of this. I need the distraction. And the chance to work on the web, especially GoodReads and the reviews I need to write. This is endurance. We may be up and running tomorrow when our local Internet fixer will come by. đŸ€ž


Click on the pic to enlarge that picture in the corner. My new DP.
It came with this sheet of paper. Not only the symbol for the color but quantity. And another pic to show what you’re working on.
As all kits so far, the wax and pen. I love the little white tray. Most have the green ones that don’t line the diamonds up so well.
And rather than a long strip of drills, each color has it’s own baggy. The bags of black. Yikes!
The other side of the drill package.

But that’s not all I’m working on.

I want a collection of the many Fair Isle, self-striping super washed wool cakes from Willows. I just discovered I don’t have a hat of my own. I’m hoping one of these will fit me, if not gifts!
Both these hats are being knitted on ChiaoGoo red-lace circulars 16″ cables, the brown hat has size 6 US, the pink size 7. This wool is so soft!
I’m still working on the HiyaHiya Fliers sock. I only have that Pretty White skein. It is a light green. At first this was only an experiment. I had planned to frog the sock when satisfied, but I’m so happy with how it’s going that I want to make a pair. So I picked up the denim color to help there to be enough yarn for a small sized pair of socks.
I wanted to be finished with these boot-socks today. But I still need to do the Kitchener cast-off on the last toe. Sadly these  turned out slightly too large for the giftee. Maybe they’re okay for slipper socks. They will be warm!!!
These bamboo on the CinDWood sock loom are nearly to the cuff and finish.
These socks on the Flexee fine-gauge loom are nearing the heel part that will be white like the toe.
Two more projects hang out in the bin as there isn’t enough room to have everything out. Cotton slipper socks on Flexee fine-gauge loom. And a plarn water-bottle carrier. That’s a crochet so not as finger friendly for me.

That’s all I can think of. My poor writing project seems stalled again. Maybe after Christmas I’ll have less pressing projects and can get back into it.

Happy


Started Monday with this gorgeous scene.
Hard to see but it was blustery for a while.
Kali still lives playing in the snow. All her footprints from running up and down the steps and driveway. As old and feeble as she seems, some things still seem to make her happy.
We’re currently at 27.
Cold nights ahead
Almost done. Maybe by the weekend?
Flexee fine-gauge loom socks nearly ready for the white heel. Very soft wool.
Double pointed needles. First time. Needed lessons for heel. Got the first part done. Hope I can get over for my lesson tomorrow to finish the heels. Then I’ll probably need help with the toes. I hope to get more of this yarn to make a smaller pair.
Bamboo yarn on CinDWood sock looms. Heading for the leg, then cuff.
My experimental HiyaHiya Fliers sock. These are so thin I can only do a row or two before my hands tire.
Time to get busy. I should have 11,669. And I still need to do Duolingo for the day.

Finishing Friday


As I promised the finished hat, now in the charity bag.

ChiaoGoo circular needles made this easy.

Heels are happening now.

Kali is helping me pose the picture but I couldn’t reach the other sock due to the puppers. In fact, the CinDWood fine-gauge loom has half the heel done.

Shoot. I can’t show you the other double pointed needle socks that are also at heel stage. I need my tutoring session to learn how to ‘turn a heel’.

Okay Word Count calls. Currently at 5,441 so I still need lots more before bedtime. See ya tomorrow!

Finishing Friday


Making progress. It sure needs straightening.
Received the book inspiring my NaNoWriMo for this year. Lots to do before Halloween midnight!
Kali sleeps while I display the DPN socks. Next I learn to finish the heel. That lesson is on Tuesday. I can’t wait!

Meanwhile, I think I have enough yarn to make one more hat for charity.

No picture of plumbing issues. I don’t want to see it. But my shower is weeks from being done. The floor is finally dry. Now to get rid of the mold that has formed in the wall for years, maybe decades. The plumbing is put together. Once mold free the walls go back up. Meanwhile, I’m sorting

Yes, still letting ‘sleeping dog’ lie. The sock on the left had to be frogged and started over. It seems like no progress but that sock is now past where it was when I had to reknit.
I’ll probably get more done on these this weekend.

Mostly my aim is to have enough characters and a bit of plot on some kinda world. Three days!!!!! Yikes!!!!

What are you working on?


Flexee fine-gauge wool socks were farther along. The one on the bottom was that full ball finished. I didn’t like something so I had to tink back to the white part. I’ll have to do that to the top sock, too.
Ready to learn Turn heel.
This is the pattern I’m following in my knitting class. My next step is ‘Turn heel’ on the first sock.
Sock 2 cuff finished. Now on to the leg.
HiyaHiya Fliers sock cuff finished. Now I need to watch the YouTube for the next part.
One bamboo sock nearly to the heel. Sock number 2 nearly there, too. (CinDWood sock looms)
Almost halfway done with the Sunflowers.

I’m learning so much while having a great time. Oh. And here comes NaNoWriMo! First character is nearly formed. PensĂ©es is the working title. Olive Odette PensĂ©es is my first character. The story is starting to form. I can’t wait! Who’s joining me?
