I'm home and missed you guys bunches!
I haven't caught up on the thread yet (anyone have cheat notes?)
I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July and 2wks I was gone
...we had a blast in WV...it's so pretty there and the kids just really love it. They went fishing and swam in the pool...they helped my dad with his garden...I got a great start on school shopping for Isaiah...we visited Linda and got some knitting in...I started mom on her socks and swirl shawl...the visit went by soo fast!!
Carla~ I do know that you won the Sockamania 'cause I had mom check when she was at work...congrats
If we have newcomers
welcome to the KAL!!
Here are some socks I'm working on
Finished the Silly Socks
Pattern: Silly Socks
Yarn: Encore DK
Needle: 5 ML
Pattern: Summer of Socks
Needle 0 2 circs and 2 at a time
Yarn: KP's flat blank that I dyed
I'm not liking 2 socks at one time at all...maybe by the end of the sock I will? I think it takes to much time to stop and untangle the yarn
and this KP yarn sticks together on the ends
Needle: 0 ML
The revisied copy is out now and I re-started this one...I really like the pattern and I worked the heel like you're suppose to (last time I tried short row and it didn't work out to well) this is the first time I've created a gusset and heel turn from the toe up
I have soooo many pictures from the trip that I Have to go through them and see what I have. Keep an eye out on my blog today (if I have time) We made it home yesterday afternoon and I had to clean this house...no one in it for several days (after JD joined us) it was icky...today is unpacking and doing laundry...and fitting grocery shopping in...
I hope you all have a great day of knitting
