Knitting


Here is my latest finished knitting project - socks for Fred completed today. The pattern is "Classic Socks" from 2-at-a-time Socks by Melissa Morgan-Oakes. The yarn is a colorway of Zitron's Trekking XXL. They have contrasting gray heels and toes because I didn't stop to think that 100 grams would not be enough to cover my husband's size 13 feet!

This was the best of my three pictures - unfortunately my toes wanted in also! Since I've not yet learned to use Photoshop Elements I'll call them the comic relief.

I will have some quilty content soon - I finally bought the fabric for Emily's quilt - which I'll start as soon as I have time to clean the sewing and knitting room.

I need to try knitting socks sometime. Those look great! And I love the quilt in your header!

If you just started knitting you're very brave to start knit socks! I've been knitting a while and haven't tackled that one yet. I do love sock yarn though, it's so pretty.
