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. :)
Just a little Something..... :-)
Thanks for the feedback, guys! So here's how things went down:
Something Interesting! http://westknits.com/index.php/2013/11/swants-tutorial/
I am so glad I have something done. This feels good and also a sigh of relief! Now on to the next one.
I read a couple of articles (one of them was from an old "Threads" magazine that I have had for ages) on how to construct gloves and gave them a shot. I used Patons sock yarn and 2.75mm needles. They are nice and warm and for the most part fit nicely. However, on my next pair I will make the little finger first and then knit another half inch before making the other three fingers.
Finally finished these socks for my sister. They will go perfect with her work clothes as she wears nurse's scrubs. They are a little more aqua-green than the pics. She already saw one when I finished it and loved it - fit perfect.
For all the Whovians out there.....here's the trailer for the 50th anniversary special. Enjoy.
Here's a picture of my latest. I've been making versions of this sock, on and off, for the past three years. For the past 6 or 7 months, it's been mainly "on". I couldn't really tell you how many times I've knit this sock. But I'm feeling that this time may really be The One that I've been looking for.
