Tag Archive: Finished Friday



I’m nearly finished with a pair of reversed socks. The combo is the opposite of the pair I finished a few days ago.

I just need to finish the cuffs. That’ll be done tomorrow, I’m sure.

This was yarn from China that I bought just before the lockdown. The labels are in Chinese except for the word Bamboo. Four skeins equal four socks. I made them on KB Flexee fine-gauge looms of 40 pegs each. I started with the Kitchener cast-on, German short-row toes, and heels. Most of the rest of the sock was the flat-knit stitch. The cuff is two-by-two knit and purl rib-stitch. Extra stretchy bind-off finishes the sock.

I am nearly finished with one other thing, and I will probably finish before I go to bed, The Walking Dead volume 15. I’ll post my review on Sunday. Notice how I left Saturday open for the usual Stream of Consciousness?

By the way, I love Fridays because I get to Zoom with my BFFs! The exciting part is two of us four have gotten their vaccines (first shots). No, our little community is still waiting for the shots to arrive.

Finished Almost Friday


After many frogs, the second sock is nearly finished. I would guess it will be done on Sunday. It is funny how different the two socks with the same yarn came out. Still, they are soft bamboo cotton that will be fun in tennies or morning slippers. All I know is I will never knit four socks at a time on the CinDWood X-loom. It is just too unwieldy. I might, though, make a scarf, blanket, or shawl as there are so many pegs (248) to make a good-sized piece of fabric.

Finished Friday


I wish I could say I have finished a whole pair of socks. Instead, I have to claim a sock and nearly another, minus the cuff. I think it is safe to say that the pair should be whole by Sunday.

I’m still teaching myself to circular needle knit a pair of toe-up magic circle socks. I’m giving up on the provisional cast-on. I think it isn’t the actual cast-on that bothers me; you aren’t starting at the tip of the toe but farther in. So my blog-friend at Missy’s Crafty Mess   shared her favorite cast-on. It does seem a lot more logical, so I’m frogging those again and trying this instead. Maybe I should call it Frogging Friday at this point?

 

It was a fun Friends Friday as my buds and I did our regular Zoom get-together. While we were chatting, our weather here went from sunny to a layer of snow. Now it is mostly gone. Sorry to the rest of the country that is getting overloaded with the stuff. We need lots more as our drought continues. But it was fun to watch this out my front window.


First, the disappointing word count of 44,235. That is 774 words short of the goal of 45,009. But I will try to make that up tomorrow.

On the other hand

Two more slipper socks, and the toe of the first of the next pair ready to go. I added a few rows on the multi-frogged X-Wing loom of four socks. So maybe the words suffer for the soft yarn? If I yarn better can I get more words? Curious minds want to know.

Meanwhile, my son and I are watching S.H.I.E.L.D.

We are into season 3. It is a Marvelous background to write to. It is fun and has similar energy that I think my NaNo has.

In the mornings after Kelly and Ryan and the View, oops and the News and GMA3 I am rewatching the Crown I just got to the Kennedy part. By the way, the choices for actors for those two was so wrong!

By the way, I finally finished Poldark. I had to leave it for a while because it added to the dispare of the day. And the cold parts were hard to watch when the weather got cold. But I did enjoy it and wished for more when it ended.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “the last thing you put in your fridge.” Start your post with the last thing you put in your fridge. Let your mind wander from there. Enjoy!

The last thing I put in my fridge was the ranch dressing that fell out because the last person who put it in didn’t make sure it was in there securely. I wanted to complain, but I am very grateful for a full fridge. We have been blessed this month with a little extra on our cards, and so when we got the boxes, the cabinets and fridge are full. In my life, that has hardly ever been the case. Not that I have ever been hungry. But just enough that I can find what I need in the fridge is the usual scene. I am so glad my husband is starting to like my vegetarian ways. Yes, he eats some meat but very seldom. My son does the same thing buying the occasional tofu meal. He loves Kimchi. I tried to cook it a lot once I learned about it. I make the rice and veggies on the side and make sure to fry the tofu to crispie-ish. The trouble with the lockdown is that we don’t get into town to find the Kimchi. I think I will try to order some on Amazon.

Yay! Got me some Kimchi, noodles, a cooker, and tofu coming. My mouth is drooling!

Okay, now for the NaNo word count: 35,167, still barely above the goal of 35,007 but, I’m happy. I like how the story is going. Not sure I should share until I am more sure where it is going. I’m having fun. That’s all that counts.

I didn’t have a finished product yesterday for Finished Friday. I had one slipper sock done, and while chatting with my friends, I nearly finished the other. Boom! Done today!

And I have the next pair toed and ready to make the next pair.

Finished Friday, NaNo Version


With the distractions of Steve Kornacki and his magic with math, (gosh, I wish I could do math like that, I have to use paper and pencil on more than single digits!) a great zoom meet with friends, worries of new stats of COVID19, getting around to actually writing was almost impossible.

But I did manage to finish another ear-warmer and start a slipper sock.

If it were not so late and needing to do the word count before midnight I would reorder how I am presenting this. But, reality. So…

I hardly ever get a good picture of Rosey. But there she was looking right at me in a place where she didn’t blend in. The light was good. But this is how that went:

Yeah, I’m not worried about taking a photographer’s job away. But isn’t she shiny?!

 

Okay, NaNo results. I was able to flesh out Violet. I really like her. I will run a search with her descriptions and see who she looks like tomorrow. Meanwhile, I did manage 1,705 with the grand total being 11,086. That makes me nearly ecstatic! The goal for today was to be 10,002.

Time for bed!


Friday

But it wasn’t apparent at first. It was after lunch when we realized the trash hadn’t made it out to the curb. Oops!

Anyway, I had to share the daughter and boyfriend’s socks on their feet.

From this, you can see what a cute couple they are!

But the current finished project was this pair of slipper socks. They are headed to the charity, Hat Huggers.

There was enough yarn leftover that I have started a smaller pair of anklet slippers. I hope I have enough to finish that project.

I took pics of the Flexeeloom as I am making a hat for an adult. I know it seems weird to have a loom that wriggles around, but it is light and sturdy and I love working with it. Working the two-by-two ribbing is tedious on most looms and can actually hurt my hands. This loom is like working with butter.

As you can see I can wad it up or stretch it out and the stitches stay on the pegs and the work is fast and easy. Here is where I left off today.

This is the underside.

This is from the top.

Oh, look at the time! It is nearly tomorrow! S0 this concludes #WDIIA and #WTIIA Friday edition.


I finished sock one this morning.

Isn’t it weird how colors change within the cell camera? This is actually a sea-blue not gray. The hook and KB Sock Loom are the true colors. Anyway, this was a toe-up. Toe is now finished on sock number two.

Trash pick-up and Zooming with friends proved to me it was Friday. Why should that be different than any other day? The TGIFs of the past no longer apply.

As much as I feel American and love this country, I never look forward to the Fourth of July. I worry about fires. I don’t mind those pretty fireworks that the fire department controls. But wreckless people buying their own and shooting them off willy-nilly. And every year there are fires.

Still, this year has so much going on. So I am hoping the patriotic overcome the political chasms between us and the pandemic helps us care for each other.

I’m cutting this short because I am reading about early America in Outlander 8.

Yay! Finished Friday!


I’ll be more talkie tomorrow.

 

This happened.

 

I took Kali outside. Stood on the porch for half a moment. Then suddenly something made me yelp. I don’t know what it was. I didn’t see anything fly or crawl away. But touching anything feels like cactus on my arm. So I am trying not to hold my arm where it touches. I’m not dying. It hardly hurts. Just uncomfortable. Wish I could find the critter who did it. Revenge sounds good!

Yay! Finished Friday


I love baby socks! They are so fast!

Okay. the stats: These are made on the KB 24 peg, 3/4 gauge.

I have the markers set up for the heel. Oh, and yes, a couple of those pegs are bent forward. I need to run the loom under warm water and see if I can fix those. The loom got caught under the rocker recliner when I wasn’t looking. Oops! But they didn’t cause too much of a problem even as is.

Draw-string Cast-on to make the toe. Knit ten rows. I used the flat-knit stitch. Then between the first peg and the twelfth peg, I did the Russian short rows (heel). Eight rows of flat-knit stitch for the ankle. Then a two-by-two e-wrap/purl cuff for eight rows. Just the regular bind of, the one that you wrap two, knit first two. Then bring second loop to the first loop. knit bottom over top. Move that loop to the number two spot. That is now the number one peg. E-wrap number two. knit over. Move number two to number one. knit bottom over top. Repeat to end wrap last. knit over. Cut end (about two inches) pull through the loop. Hide ends. Voila!
