on the needles…
(click on all pictures in post to in large them)
this isn’t like me! I have 3 projects going at the same time (don’t forget the mini van sock! Which has progressed to the heel gusset. yay me!) wildflower socks which are very Project Spectrum this month
which I’m not sure if I’m going to frog or not… I casted on the smaller size (56 sts) its a little hard to get over my heel, but once its on it fits very well. To frog, or not to frog?
also on the needles is knit and tonics something red. I’ve had the pattern forever and the yarn for even longer. It’s absolutely beautiful. Here is a close up, this picture is pretty close to the actual color. As ya’ll know, red is *very* hard to capture!
I’m using Louet Sales Gems Merlin Camelot in color 60-2895-1. I’m calling it Red Rose. Much more romantic, no? Its 70% Merino and 30% linen. I bought this yarn 2 years, maybe 3 years, ago at Webs on sale. This is so sad, that I have to admit it. I just got the name of the yarn… Merlin Merino/Linen Mer Lin. Holy Crap I am slow!
…off the needles
Little socks for Allysa
(see my beautiful marigold that Bryce gave to me for Mother’s Day? I love it!)
I had enough yarn left over from my secret knitting, Kailey’s socks, Corra’s socks, another pair of socks for Allysa and my socks to knit a pair of socks for Allysa!
Pattern– Waffle Rib II from Sensational knitted socks
Yarn– Socks that Rock medium weight in boysenberry and rhodenite
Needles– Inox US 2 dpns
Started– April ?, 2007
Finished– May 7, 2007
Notes- I cased on 44 sts. Leg measures 3″, foot measures 6 1/2″ She wears a child’s size 10. When Allysa put on her new socks she proclaimed “now I can walk!”
I’m hoping to go to the Waynesburgh Co. Sheep and Wool this weekend, I will be schlepping Allysa and Kailey with me. (unless I can find a sitter for Allysa) Let me know if your going too!
I’d frog the Wildflowers – life’s to short to knit something you may not like!
Ok, I’m sure you told us and I missed it but what yarn are you using for your Wildflower socks? it’s a must-have!
Ok, your new site is awesome. When you scroll over a link it brings up a mini browser of the site! Man, I am so easily entertained
The yarn for your wildflowers sock looks really pretty Reminds me of my one, much loved skein of Vesper.
i tried wildflowers … the (partial) sock is still intact, though i yanked the needles for something else. my gauge in stockinette was fine, but the stitch pattern made things “shrink in”. i struggled and moved on (meaning, i started another, different, sock.). (life is short!)
i’m amazed that you can take the kids to these sorts of events. but, i guess, they learn young (right kailey?!) that momma needs to go see and touch yarn 😉 and that it’s NORMAL to drive a bazillion hours to do so 🙂
