It's Sunday afternoon and I have the computer all to myself, so I thought that this would a good time to get caught up with my blogging.
I had decided that I needed to take a much needed break from trying to knit socks with my recently acquired Opal sock yarn. I had tried out 2 very different patterns and both ended up in the notorious frog pond. (Please see previous posts....if you're at all interested.)
I went back to an old faithful knitting standby......dishcloths! Last week, my favorite craft store had a sale on cotton yarn and I was able to get some new colors that I had never used before. That's always fun.
Here's the Eloomanator’s Diagonal Knit Dishcloth in Lily Sugar and Cream Floral Prints.
I was going to save this for another post, but since I have the computer, I may as well keep going.
Well, the sock yarn that I'm working with definitely is meant to be knit in a plain pattern. I decided not to fight anymore, however, plain knitting reduces me to boredom and sleep. (I can't watch any TV if I fall asleep.) So....to keep things interesting....I went back to trying to knit Toe-Up Socks. I'm not sure if I like it or not. This is my progress this far........
I'm not too sure if I like the way the toe looks where I've drawn the arrows. When I try it on my foot, I guess it's OK. I'm using a pattern by Wendy D. Johnson of Wendy's Knits She has a really neat blog. The pattern: Fingering Weight Toe-Up Socks With Gusset and Slip-Stitch Heel
More details will follow soon.
