I finially finished my Round #2 Sock Madness socks, Mad-tinis.
Monthly Archives: March 2007
Here are some socks I have finished in the last two months. This first pair is the Cable Twist Socks from www.helloyarns.com knit in Europa (discontinued yarn) at 7 stitches per inch on size US #3 needles.
The red socks are my Wyvern Woman Socks. I really enjoyed knitting these and would consider doing them again. I used Colinette DK and US #2 needles.
And this last pair, on the left, are the Honeycomb Sock pattern. I picked up some Regia Bamboo/wool blend at a yarn shop in Wichita, KS and am using up the leftover Baby Ull from the Mad Cow socks.
Well, here I am with my own blog. It will be pretty basic at first I am sure, as I learn all the little tricks and tweaks. I was using GeoCities to host my blog but I was very unhappy with the way that was going. The software was not very good and I could not figure out how to post any buttons down the sides. I would like to post a botton on ths side of this one so I am trying to figure that out.
I used to publish webpages and sites for al iving but soooo much has changed on the internet and I am feeling very inadequate.
On another subject . . . mainly knitting. I turned the heel on my Honeycomb socks (pics to come) and am not happy with the fact that it is to many stitches around for my foot so I am ripping it out back to the heal and will do a double decrease to get it tightened up a bit.
Tomorrow starts Round #2 of Sock Madness and I am excited. I will be using UltraMerino 04 from www.artyarns.com in color #130 (a neopolitan colorway) on size US #2 needles to get 7 stitches to the inch.
