Another pair of socks...

So this is quite a screwup - I'd started a pair of socks for my friend Shakir way before going to the US, and got waylaid. I finally finished them up and took a picture of him wearing them but accidentally had the movie camera function on.

Um....okay.

I can only shudder to think what will happen when a man decides to make a similar statement. ;)

Some plain toe-ups

The fiddler in our oldtime group likes to wear as many colors as possible, so when I saw this yarn I decided she should have a pair of socks knit from it. So now she does. :)

Completely Useless Knitting Projects

Howdy, don't know if there are any other "Viners" out there but I just wanted to share this bit of silliness with y'all. :)

Colds. The Gift That Keeps On Giving

Warning: Not for the weak of stomach. But my creative side goes weird when I'm cooped up in the house. :)

Hemşin Sock Again

Hemşin (HEM-sheen) is a village - actually two different villages with people of the same ethnic origin - in Turkey's E. Black Sea region. I first saw a similar sock to this on a friend whose mother had knitted it for him.

Jaywalkers for me

Well, after seeing them here, making a pair for my mom and deciding I needed a pair for myself too, I think I've had enough of jaywalkers for a while! I do enjoy the pattern though it does take a bit more time than some because of the larger number of stitches involved to compensate for relative lack of elasticity in the leg.

Turkey / Istanbul / Protests etc.

Hi all,

A few people have written privately asking about Turkey and if I'm safe. I thought I'd do a blog post so you can all see it.

First, I was in the US for most of the unrest. I went on May 16 to deal with some issues with my mom, and a week or so later all hell broke loose. I think trying to follow it from outside the country was worse than being here would have been.

Jaywalkers

The recent jaywalker posts inspired me, so I looked through my stash and found a skein that had looked nice on the shelf but failed to inspire when I actually started knitting it. Now I realize all it needed was some zigzag to wake it up. :)

A Real Live FO!

A pair of toe-ups. The reverse Dutch heel still looks like nipples on my heels but I'll block them now. :-) They would have been identical twins but for a knot that appeared as i was doing the cuff. If i were really anal i could have wound ahead. But I'm not that anal.

Now I have to finish my Brethrens....
