Hi everyone -
Putting on my social justice hat for a moment to encourage everyone to wear purple tomorrow in support of at-risk youth, especially those who are LGBTQ, for what is now known as "Spirit Day".
I first mentioned this about 4 years ago here on MWK and decided it was time to bring it up again.
I currently have a large knitting bag that will hold a lot of stuff...right now it's holding all kinds of notions in different zippered pockets, a drop spindle and some roving, a couple books, and three different knitting projects. It's great for carrying a bit of everything, but I often would like something smaller that would hold just my current project as well as a few essential notions.
Yesterday I finished one sock. Started the second. Here is a pic of the sock on the foot. I think I am warming up and liking this method. Need to get the other one done quickly. Tempers are beginning to drop. I'll need to be wearing the pair soon.
Anyone in the Denver area, please join us for a pint and some fibre fun! http://on.fb.me/116Unow
Hi Fellow Knitters,
I hate technology!
Here is my latest sock in progress, shown on top of the original antique pair.
I thought I would post pics of the finished sock that I wrote about a few weeks back. Once again, the goal was to reproduce this antique sock as closely as possible, considering the materials on hand.
I haven't been particularly active lately, but I thought I'd drop you a quick note to let you know that all is well.
Ok, fellas. I'm kinda proud that I got my first article in a knitting magazine in the UK. I feel like I'm on cloud 9 right now. Woo hoo! Check out my blog for the skinny on it. See? The fellas are making great strides in knitting, man!
