and probably more than a dollar short! Oh well... I had every intention of posting yesterday but somehow it just zipped by me. This week I've been knitting a bit and I've finished one pair of socks that has been hanging around for a while.
This is another of my version of the ragrug socks. I alternated every round...one turquoise...one orange. I don't know why this is so satisfying but it is. Not knowing what is going to appear keeps me mesmerized...LOL... if I was at one of those hypnotist shows I'd probably be the person clucking like a chicken at the mere suggestion! Anyway, the turquoise is Drops Fable 340 and the orange is Regia Color 120. As these were both in my stash I consider these FREE socks.
And speaking of FREE socks... I started this pair...
These are bits and bobs of leftover Opal sock yarn. I think I've used 5 different skeins here. The heels and toes are an Austermann ombre yellow/orange. Again all of this yarn was in my stash so they are FREE socks!. With these socks I'm not alternating every round, instead I'm knitting lots of rows before I break the yarn and start a new one. Sometimes I'm knitting 5 or 6 rounds, sometimes as many as 20. I'm just keeping and eye out that I'm not repeating a pattern. Again these are flying off the needles as I'm entranced by what is happening. I started the first sock a week ago and I think it only took about 5 days. Fast for me, but I did have a bit of car sitting time to work on it. I can't wait to finish this pair and start another scrappy sock!
Well I've got a lot of stuff to do in the next week. Monday I'm taking a class with Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville and no, I don't have all my stuff ready yet. And I have family for dinner tomorrow evening... making meatballs... a favorite!The usual running around in the week and tickets for a comedy show to attend on the weekend.
Oh... and before I forget Nordic Mart is having a sale on the Drops Fabel yarn that I love so much... you can see it here. Great prices...and even though I have a healthy stash of this yarn I may have to add a few more skeins... can't pass up a bargain!
Today is gray and cold and yucky... they are promising a change for the better starting tomorrow and even tease of temps in the 70's by mid week... oh I hope they are right... come on SPRING!!!
