Last socks for 2012 making 7 pairs of socks since August. They feel so good on my feet with my wool slippers snuggled up on the couch with a quilt and sniffling. Knitting is such a nice thing to be able to do when I have a cold. Now I am feeling better.
A black stocking cap knit with the same design pattern as the socks but on size 15 needles. The morning sun is best for knitting on black. The yarn is alpaca it is soooo soft.
Have made progress on striping socks, working on the slip stitched heel. I count the stitches and read and reread the directions and my heel is off center. I unknit stitches and reknit. Speaking of unknitting Navy son, daughter and I were in the final rounds of a very competitive game of Scrabble, you know when everyone is down to their last tiles and the only options are 2 and 3 letter words and Navy son makes the word fid so of course he is challenged whoever heard of a fid but there is such a thing it is a tool used to unknot cables and ropes in the Navy. I needed a fid to unknit some of my rows. I asked if it was and acronym but it is not even though it could be....maybe..... freeing interlocking device teehee Just for the record I had a w that I put between an a and l for awl which also went between 2 es for ewe. It must have been a record for most points from a single letter. Back to the socks........I have more stitches on the right side than on the left side of the slip stitches where the gusset is getting worked into the heel flap. How can this be so difficult?? What am I doing wrong??? ~~Ann~~ Linking up to Judy at Patchworktimes.
