Socks & DD’s Knitting


DD’s socks are coming along; I had to frog the entire sock about a week ago. When I picked up the gusset stitched I did it on the wrong needle and could not get them on the correct needle and it just got ugly from there. But last night I turned the heel and I am half way through the gusset decrease. Is it my imagination or do socks knit up a lot faster on 2 circs than on 4 dpn’s … just a thought?



DD has been working very hard this summer on her knitting. This is what she has finished. I gave her a simple pattern to follow so she could learn to follow a pattern and this is how it looks. Rather good for a 7 year old (IMHO). I made a promise to her that when she has completed the ball of SnC that I would take her to the LYS and she can buy her own ball of yarn (which she already has picked out). Is 7 to young to start your own yarn stash??

It finally came!!

So even though SP11 officially starts today and SP10 was finished on July 31th I just got my package (due to yarn backorders). My dear secret pal sent an original design tank pattern with 7 skeins of KP’s Cotlin in Island Coral. What a pretty color yarn. I can’t wait to start knitting this tank!!

In her excitement, to finally be getting the final package out, forgot to add a note with her reveal info. I have an email in to her right now so as soon as I learn the identity of my secret pal I will let you all know.

UPDATE: The Identity of my seceret pal is Chrispy over at Pursuit of Fiber

Sock Picture

As promised here is a picture of DD’s socks (or sock) as the case maybe. However … I did somehow screwed messed up the heal flap so I have to rip back 10ish rows and do it again.  It seams and I do not know how it happened that I am knitting the heal flip inside out so the “knit” side does not show.  Not too bad … I can live with it!
