I went project diving into some project bags and found another pair of socks. This pair is barely started, just past the toe increases with K2, P2 ribbing on the top of the foot. No big deal. Right. Except for one thing. Both socks are on the same long needle. I do NOT like knitting two-at-time on one needle and can’t for the life of me remember when I got the bright idea to try it. One. More. Time. Obviously I got only so far and put that project down and promptly forgot about it.
Two socks on one needle is fiddly for me. And I have a problem avoiding gaps on the sides. But I am determined to finish this project as is and not separate the socks onto two needles.
It’s almost time for us to leave for Brad’s PT appointment and I’ll work on these while I wait on him. I know he’ll feel better after Jared works on loosening that shoulder up. I’ll need to run an errand later when he is back home and recovering from PT but it is a nice day, although more than a little humid and 80°, at least the sun is out and it isn’t raining.
I am a Native Texan, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Catholic Convert residing in rural North East Texas since 1975 when I married my husband and this small town girl became a country girl.
I was taught to knit at the age of ten and discovered the writings of Elizabeth Zimmerman shortly after I married. I learned to ‘unvent’ things as I went along, to create my own patterns and generally have a blast with yarn and needles.
In the mid 1980’s I explored the idea of spinning my own yarn and eventually got interested in weaving on a floor loom. I have three spinning wheels and a 24″ four-shaft Herald floor loom that I purchased from a friend in the 1990’s.
I also enjoy sewing, tatting and making rosaries. I have a work room that contains my fiber, yarn, floor loom, sewing machines, serger and rosary making supplies. I have a spinning corner in a bedroom next to my work room, both with north windows looking toward the creek.
