Socks And More Socks

I finally finished this pair of socks around 4 pm today and put them in to soak in Eucalan. They are drying on the sock blockers and will be added to my sock drawer when dry. This is the pair I’m enjoying working on at the moment, another skein of Jo Dee’s BFL/Nylon base andContinue reading “Socks And More Socks”

Feeling Sad

Had a good day with Joshua yesterday. When we were coming out to the house after running an errand in town I thought there were a lot of brown needles on the last remaining pine tree but the sun was in my eyes and it was difficult to tell much. When I was returning homeContinue reading “Feeling Sad”

Restarting A UFO

In the fiber world a UFO is an Un Finished Object, or unfinished project. This cowl has been on the needle since last Fall when I started it, set it aside, and promptly forgot about it. It’s an easy knit, ninety stitches on a 16″ size 4 needle using fingering yarn. It’s a perfect projectContinue reading “Restarting A UFO”

There Went Another Month!

I got busy yesterday and totally forgot to post something. Today will be even busier because I got behind with the laundry while doing other things around the house, including some excavations in my studio. It’s amazing what I find lurking in those big plastic bins now that everything is all sorted and organized…and IContinue reading “There Went Another Month!”

Just A Little More Summer Heat

I’m enjoying working on my current Ludlow Shawl. This BFL/Nylon yarn is easy to knit and has good stitch definition. Probably should have bought more of this yarn when I had the chance. It’s back up to 95° today. We missed most of the rain that passed through here but at least the grass isContinue reading “Just A Little More Summer Heat”

What A Difference A Day Makes!

The sun is shining, beautiful fluffy clouds in the sky, grass is greening up, won’t be much longer and we won’t need the A/C running. We were up much earlier than usual this morning. Brad had early appointments and I had errands to run. Got my hair cut. Picked up a couple of things atContinue reading “What A Difference A Day Makes!”

Almost Feels Like Autumn

A month from now it will be Autumn and lately it’s like we’re getting a preview of cooler weather. The rain was a nice change and we had more than an inch here. No flash floods, unlike the Dallas area which got hit hard with severe flooding. I could get used to temps in theContinue reading “Almost Feels Like Autumn”

Spare Socks On The Needle

That lovely golden yellow BFL sock yarn I picked out. Yeah, I misread the label. It doesn’t have any nylon in it. So I found a single skein of Fishknits Yarn, Alpine Blossom colorway, Stalwurthe base: 85% Superwash Merino, 15% undyed Nylon NEP 2-ply fingering. 438 yards, 100 grams. Yeah, I know. I said IContinue reading “Spare Socks On The Needle”

Sock Yarns: What Wears Best

The heel flaps are finished and I’ve started the cuffs which will continue in Clover Leaf Lace. This is the last skein of semi-solid Fishknits Yarn in my stash that isn’t set aside for another project. I have several skeins set aside for socks for Brad that require more than one skein for his sizeContinue reading “Sock Yarns: What Wears Best”
