Off and On My Needles
I am always happy when I can report that I have completed a knitted item. I am a very slow knitter. It doesn’t bother me until feel I should have something done and I don’t. These socks were started in March but I became sick around April/May and finally wound up in the hospital for half of July and again for a week in August. Then it took me another few weeks to get back to knitting. Since these socks were planned as a gift I focused on them and had them ready to gift on time. I was almost as excited by them as my daughter was.
Meanwhile I had started on these. I call them my “leftover” socks using the leftovers from earlier socks. There is no rhyme or reason as to the order of the yarns but next time I may plan first. I am putting two rows of the black/white between each new yarn. This has been so fun, especially since all I am doing is knitting a plain stitch over and over. I think I am about 2 1/2” away from starting the heels.
I am sharing on Patchwork Times, come check us out.
Hope to see you all next week, Gari
