Making Monday


It is great to be back home. No driving or sitting for long times. While Chris was in the hospital I did a lot of knitting. At first I worked on this pair of socks.

But because I am trying to make the top of the sock a bit textured with four purl/four knit pattern, I found myself too distracted and doing the wrong stitches in the wrong places. So I left it at home the next few days and worked on the next pair of socks.

The bluish tinted yarn is very soft. That’s the part on the body of the sock. The toe and heel are a sturdier yarn. Because there are fewer stitches to keep track of, this is a better project when I am distractible. I finished the first heel today so these are going faster than the first pair.

Oh. And the hat. It is a soft mohair, light pink if the picture show it right. I’m doing a cable stitch that takes a lot of strength and concentration so I haven’t moved very far on it.

All of these are heading for the Hugger Hats charity. I still love the the win-win of getting to make things and having someone enjoy the results.

I’m nearly finished with this pair. Because I didn’t have enough of any yarn, I subbed heel and cuff with the green yarn of same type yarn. I’ll probably keep them for me.

I think I’ll make a smaller pair with the green.

Two hombre socks nearly finished. I think I’ll have enough yarn left over for another hat. I love my Flexee looms and they are perfect for socks! Even toe-up!

Meanwhile, Doctor Who is keeping my distraction levels up and pain levels down. ūüėé

I have been very busy trying to finish a pair of socks. But LOOK! One is done and fits!!!!!

I tried it on my foot and it was a little bigger. My brother came in and tried it on and said it was perfect. YAY!

Now I’m working nearly non-stop on sock #2. By the way, the pattern is on the DVD that came with the sock loom (kB).

I have about an inch of ribbing done need another two inches. Now that I understand the heel and toe the ribbing is the hardest part Mostly because the loom is a little harder to handle than the round ones. I may try the CinDWood loom for the next pair. Meanwhile, my brother’s birthday is Friday. Wish me luck! Please!!!
