On the Needles
Here is class sock #1 with the heel started. The heel wasn’t part of the homework for the week but I went asked if I could have the directions for starting it so I would be ready to have her help me with the gusset, the part I got stopped on when I was doing it by myself. And, because I got this part done, I started on the second sock, too. I am hoping that I will be able to have both of these socks done by the end of the lessons, in 1 week.
Additionally, I am getting very close to having my second tube sock done. I only have about 2” to do on the tube and then the toe, which was very easy on the first sock. These are a little heavier and will be great when it starts to get cooler (I wear sandals all year). I have some of this yarn left so am thinking of combining it with a heavier white/cream yarn for a hat.
I have also had some success at working on quilting projects and will show them off on Monday.
Have a grate weekend, everybody! Gari
