Socks!!Presenting....my first pair of socks!!
What: My first pair of socks!
Yarn: Crazy Monkey yarn, in the color “Tiptoe through the Tulips”.
Pattern: None. It’s just a basic sock with an afterthought heel.
Lesson Learned: Lots. There are many, many
Look at how much yarn I have left over!
I knit the first sock on 56 stitches and did the heel over half the stitches. The result was a sock that was a bit too tight, with a heel that was a bit too small.
For the second sock, I knit on 60 stitches and did the heel on 34 stitches. The result was a sock that was a bit too loose and the heel was definitely too big.
So, for my next sock, I think I’ll do 58 stitches and the heel on half the stitches. Stay tuned for results.
Last Saturday, Kishka spent the day with me, running errands and going to knit group. The dog was pooped when we got home!
She didn't even open her eyes to scratch an itch:
