Completely healed from De quervain's surgery and knitting without pain! Finishing up some UFOs and casting on new ones. Whoot whoot!
Another Sunday Funday with my creative pals! This time Dolls!
I do not know who I am… I have always said I will never knit socks, and right now, that is all I want to do. Who am I??? I have always wanted fun, colorful socks and I envied knitters who had them. But I was never going to knit with those tiny yarns and those tiny needles. But after my failed interaction with a circular sock machine, I picked up some needles and gave it a try. I can not explain it, I have now knit about a dozen pair over the last 3 months or so. I experimented with a few styles, first using short rows, and then I found a very simple pattern that knit the sock from the toe up, made a heel gusset and finished with some ribbing and they are ready to go. I love my socks. Never say never, I guess.
Just chillin in the sunshine…
I got nothing to say about why its been a while, it’s just been a while…
I finished this pair of socks from the sock blank in the last post. Really funky and I love them.
Then, I finished another pair, these are kind of knee-high length. They are made out of some vibrantly hand dyed yarn, and made interesting designs. I like them. I am totally amazing myself because I never thought I would make socks, but they are strangely relaxing to make.
Back to some typical kind of knitting; I made this out of cotton tape. It is a just a group of varied lace designs knit over 100 stitches. I made 2 identical pieces and seamed the top and sides and I have a very comfortable summer topper.
Then, I finished this wrap. It is also made out of cotton and using a pattern called “Rigoles” as a guide, it is something nice for cool summer nights.
