Some of the Best Laid Plans.......

Some of the best laid plans........get frogged!

I was cruising along rather nicely on the pink cabled sock, almost done with the leg portion and getting ready to work on the heel when I spotted a dropped stitch that was too far down to be salvageable
. I didn't even bother to take a photo, because we've all been there a time or two when we eye the dreaded hole in our beloved knitting. Well, I guess it could have been worse. I could have been almost completed with the sock, before I found the loopy stitch. I guess that I got over confident with my ability of using DPN's. That will teach me. Ha!

Now the quandary......do I start all over again? Or....do I start fresh with a different pattern? I think that I'll work on some of my other UFO's.

Socks and More Socks and New Software

I haven't blogged for a while, because it's summer-time, well, technically it isn't, but once the kids are officially out of school for the year....it's considered summer around here. Summer keeps me busy, but not too busy to knit. It has become a little too hot to knit blankets, but not too hot to knit dishcloths or socks!

I'm hopeless........

I've been working on an Ann Budd's- Spiral Rib Sock, knitted w/Fortissima Yarn. It's a light brown with tiny specks of red throughout. I also got new Sock Wizard v.2 for my birthday. I thought that Sock Wizard v.1 was great, but v. 2 is so much better. It has lots of "tools" and options to play with.




I've also been working on a cabled sock, another Ann Budd design. The black & gold kitty stitch-markers were also a birthday gift.




I may never knit anything else, but socks, well, at least, until summer is over.
