On the needles

Socks are done and almost done.  I ripped a sweater and started over on a different pattern.  I didn't like the way the shoulders and sleeves fit and felt so I ripped and it ripped so fast!  This is just a long sleeve basic crew neck pullover.  There is a strip in the middle of yarn that wasn't ripped yarn and notice how smooth the stitches are.  I didn't think there would be a difference in the yarn.  I sure hope it blocks out.  It is knitting fast on size 9 needles.  Sunny day here and sloppy streets.  linking to Judy's OTN --Ann--

I have always admired knitting and hand knitted projects. My grandmother tried to teach me, I remember the basics... she coached me through a sweater vest when I was in high school and taught me how to make the ribbed hem and how to turn a cable. After she died I never really wanted to pick up needles again. I should, though, in loving memory of her and her patience with an often frustrated teenage girl! ;)

Nice socks! I especially like the red ones as it's my favorite color. Looks like you're on the way to a nice sweater, too.

What cute socks. Both of them are great colors. I hope your sweater blocks out too. I'd hate to have done another sweater from ripped yarn and then not be able to wear it. Let us know.
