as my mother would say when I handed her a plate of my early “cookery”.
WARNING! ‘ERE BE SPOILERS!!!
If you’re knitting the “Laceless” shawl from Strange Knits the following post contains photographs of a border. A lace-less border. Knit (!) in sock-weight yarn. In two colours. You’ll have to contain your own excitement.
I think I'm gonna need a bigger sock blocker!
The first of my Serpentine socks is complete (pattern from Socks from the Toe Up by Wendy Johnson, yarn Zauberball 6).
If you’re offended by the upper motif, I suggest you focus on the lovely snowflakes! I’ve now finished the gusset decreases and it’s just plain (!) sailing to the toe.
Most of my energy (what little there is) has been focused on Tour de Fleece:
I’m behind on reading/commenting on blogs so if you normally hear from me, don’t worry, I’ll get to you at some point! I’ve got raging sinusitis and I’ve been threatened with steroids if my new nasal spray doesn’t work and I’M SO BORED.
May you live in interesting times, indeed.
I thought I’d given them up.
Gushing Vein in repose.
But apparently you can’t just walk away from hand-knit socks.
Which would explain why I’ve already cast two pairs on and I’m about to cast on a third.
Oh, here are the buttons for Swartbos
And here’s what I did on Day 1 of Tour de Fleece
Start of the day, Finished, Skeined (pre bath and thwack)
Briefer a post than I would have liked, but I developed the sinusitis from hell and got the wrong kind of vertigo. Sudafed to the rescue and I’m on the mend. Slowly.
