As per her request I completed the lavendery purple socks which of course she loved. I used the Shetland Lace Rib pattern and only did the lace on the cuffs. I sort of fudged the pattern to make it my own once I got to the heep flap and foot. I used Wildefoote sock yarn from the Brown Sheep company. The same folks who bring you Lamb’s Pride.
Look at those gams!
Of course I also took the Grandoggie for a visit with Grandma and Grandpa. My dad especially enjoys Chief’s visits, he really likes having canine hugs.
As for what I have been working on knit wise. I am working on the Tidal Wave Socks using Tofutsies so generously gifted to me by Amy. and I am working on my variation of the Cowgirl Slipper Sock from Interweave Knits using Cascade fixation, again tweaking the pattern by using a size four needle and adding extra length at the end of the pattern rows.
This is my new knitting accessory that I found on Etsy! A super cute little bag with a funky vintage pattern and a aqua green lining. The zipper pull has a stitch marker on it and the bag itself has a little grommet on the side so that you can pull yarn through the hole to work on your project. There’s also a pocket on the inside and an elastic band to hold needles or whatever. So props to Piddleloop!
Everyone have a great week, I am now going to attempt to clean my house…….stop snickering…….Marj
