Well,I almost bombed out of the KO's. I decided that the yarn I was using to knit my blokes socks with wasn't right. He agreed. He still wanted more socks though. What to do!
So I went shopping! At my local Bendigo Woollen Mills outlet they had 4ply machine wash pure wool in BLACK. 50gm balls $1 EACH. So I bought a pack of 20. I have now cast on the second pair of socks for my challenge. these ones are 4ply knitted double on 2.25mm needles. I am still using my sherman heel/toe. Toe-up of course 32st to start with, increasing to 74st by the arch and heel. Heel will be done on 60% of the stitches. then up the leg for 14cm with 3-2 rib increasing every10th row to allow room for his VERY LARGE calves.
Well, this is the plan so far.
I just received in the mail a package from KOGO. 4 balls of yarn to knit hats with. Two a lovely blue and two a shades of blue. Can't wait to finish these socks so I can knit up this wool into hats.
The Mystery Shawl 3 has started! I have printed out the first clue.......and am buggered. I just don't know where to start! Yes I know the instructions TEll me where to start, I just have a bad case of WTF. with it. I will do it and I will do it well. I did the 2nd one didn't I, and it turned out nice. I know this will to. I just have to knit those socks! And process those eggs And do the washing And feed the family And get over this head cold (3hrs sleep) etc etc etc
Ok, as flylady says get off my but and jump in where I am and go!
