Making Monday


I’ve been working on the drawings but I’m not done yet. And I know more story but both can wait until tomorrow.

Meanwhile, two more socks are toed.

And I cut my hair, closer to the length of my Bitmoji.


If I hadn’t been working on these:

I might have finished my Inktober drawing and story. Thank goodness for Stream to get a blog published today. And putting off for later what could have been done yesterday and this morning.

Oh, and then. If only I could leave a loom open rather than immediately setting up the next pair of socks, I would have had more writing time. But gifts want to be given.

So I’d have a horse ranch if wishes…

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “if.” Start your post with the word “If.” Enjoy!

Making Monday


Another hat on the Flexee fine-gauge loom. This yarn is softer, but I still have a bit of the mohair to use up so I’m adding pinkish basket weave band above the brim.

And another pair of socks nearly finished with gifted yarn. I’m including the label of the yarn.

I may or may not finish my Inktober for the day.

It has been a busy day. We’re hitting 17 degrees tonight. We might have had flurries that didn’t stick last night. So we were too cold to be in the living room today.

All that sent me into packing up the summer shorts and looking for warmer clothes and my electric lap blanket for the living room. I didn’t finish that but I found enough to get through tomorrow. Snow is expected Wednesday. I forgot to take a picture of our nearly naked trees and leaf-padded driveway. Hopefully, the wild winds today didn’t get rid of all the leaves. Winter is rearing it’s head before Halloween. Isn’t that against the law?

Sock Sunday


Wahoo! Finished these today.

CinDWood Sock Looms 56 peg, 1/4 ” fine-gauge

Kitchener cast-on, former yarn for toes and heels, using German short rows. 4×4 ribbing on cuffs.

These are so comfortable!

Making Monday


Scrappy socks are nearly finished. Most of the pair are made of the Mani-Pedi crew color yarn. The toes and heels are scraps from the previous pair I made. I’m loving how they are working up.

We lived through the triple digit hot Sunday. Today was sort of hot but not nearly as bad. Tomorrow is supposed to be 72. I might wear jeans and T-shirt instead of shorts and tank-top what a relief! I might take a nice walk as air quality is also supposed to be good for a change.

Too Hot Tuesday


I was going to write a Haiku or Tanka or use other prompts I found on the blogs, but it was too hot to move to the laptop. So I sat in my recliner with the fan and worked on more scrappy socks while watching the end of season 10 of the Walking Dead. I made myself feel better knowing it had to be worse for those actors in Georgia.

It is supposed to reach 99 on Thursday. Just like the difference between 33 and 32 can break pipes, the difference between 94 today and 99 means more siestas and iced green tea popsicles.

The scrappy socks are toed and heeled with leftovers from the last pair I made. I’m loving the rainbow look it makes. You can see the toe on the right that I just finished. The sock on the left need ankle and cuff, then done. The looms are CinDWood 56 pegs, fine gauge of 1/4 inch.

These are the two yarns. Mani-Pedi is the non-toe or heel parts.

The socks are Kitchener cast-on and the toe/heel is German short rows.

Now back to chillin’

Ta-Da Tuesday


I finally finished this pair of socks. And guess who they fit? Me!

Guess I should tell the details. CinDWood sock loom, Kitchener cast-on, toe-up, 4by4 knit/purl on top of foot then the ankle up through cuff. I didn’t like the purling. It made the project take far too long.

Makings Monday


The looms and needles are busy. This pair of socks I considered my bedroom hobby. If the house was too cold, I could still have something to knit in the warm bedroom. Starting in the same place, same colorway, these two socks are so different. Still, I like the colors. I’m bringing them into the living room because I suddenly find myself drawn to them.

The CinDWood X(WING) loom is down a sock. So I am only featuring three arms of socks.

Here are the finished sock and its mate.

I think these will be my brother’s birthday present. I wish they fit me because they are so soft. But lucky for him, I think they will suit him. I’ll probably have the mate finished tomorrow.

 

Here are the triple frogged circular needle sock trials. The pink yarn is the provisional cast-on. The red metal thing is the needle holder. I love that little invention. On the cables are two toes. I think that frogging is coming up again as I can’t seem to manage that silly transfer that needs to be done. I shared the YouTube a couple days ago by VeryPink Knits; just look up 2 at a time toe up magic loop to learn how to do this before me. LOL! I don’t mind frogging once again to get the hang of it all the way through. That little bit below took me several days the first time. Finally, I can make a mistake within hours! ;-D

 

These last two socks I’m playing yarn chicken with. The purple/pink yarn is nearly out, so I mix it up with the blue/green. I kind of like the combo as it reminds me of a sunset over the water. The blue is for the heel and the cuff. There may be enough to make another pair of blue/green socks.

What are you making these days?
