We were visited by another snow storm yesterday
and were left with a layer of sleet/freezing rain,
followed by 3-4" of snow.
Thankfully I made my Joann's run earlier in the day!
I was completely out of white thread!
(and so was my quilt shop!!)
How did this happen??
Hopefully after today I'll be able to show you why I
needed the white thread.
In the meantime,
I have a completed pair of socks and another pair started!
Earlier in the week I finished the
"Maryland" socks for my daughter.
These are for her little size 2 feet and were knitted using a
solid black and solid red yarn together.
She loves them and was glad to have them yesterday.
A few weeks ago I found this publication put out by "Threads"
in one of my local quilt shops...
It cost $6.00 and is full of lots of socks to make...
some beautiful and some unique!
The one thing I really like about this book/magazine is the patterns tell you
how long to knit the foot of the sock for specific sizes
instead of saying "measure your foot and..."
If I'm making a pair of socks as a gift or for someone who lives out of town,
I can't measure their foot.
Here is the pair I started from this publication...
The pattern was supposed to extend down the foot, but I find
wearing socks with a pattern like this on my foot is uncomfortable.
This pattern is the "Alpaca Texture Sock"
and is really easy to knit.
I cannot remember the yarn name or manufacturer as I lost the
tag. I need to put the tag and ball of yarn in a
baggie after I wind it into a ball, so I can have that information!
