Just Made It!!!
I had talked about the Harris Tweed Socks I was making for my husband in my last post. Today I was down to the wire...and actually had to break into the "Emergency Skein" that the Rockin' Sock Club sends (or at least used to send when I was a member) with each installment. I have a teeny, tiny bit left. I am SO relieved! I just didn't want to have to order another skein for a few rows, but I wanted the socks to fit him and be symmetrical too.
Now that these are done, I'm going to keep on with my latest driving mitts--the wonderful Bodhi Mitts pattern that I found on Ravelry. Here's a pic of the first one; these are really fun to make but will definitely need a nice blocking.
I just placed a big KnitPicks order with several sizes of 40" circulars--I will now make socks Magic Loop as I've been doing my driving mitts. I've been reading a couple of toe-up books and I'm READY!
More to come.
