It's coming along just fine, thank you. A few days ago I told you that I had cleaned out my old stash of yarn in order to upgrade and I found a few UFO's in my bin so I'm trying to get these done before I continue on with my socks. I will probably finish this scarf tonight (YIPPEE!)
I couldn't tell you what kind of yarn or what weight it is. It's probably a bulky weight as I'm using size 8 needles and it is rather thick feeling which I love.
I said I wasn't going to post a picture of my socks until I finished both of them. Well since I started these "other" half finished projects I'm dying to show the world my first pair of socks (1/2 finished)
I am starting to add SOCK knitting to my collection of knitting books but the one that I've found most helpful is a leaflet by Leisure Arts called I Can't Believe I'm Knitting Socks by Cindy Guggemos. My green socks, which I've named Frolicking In The Grass on Ravelry, is just the basic sock pattern. But I was so excited about these pair of socks I started another pair... just a little more difficult. This pattern is called the Syncopated Rib Socks and I picked out bold colors for this.
And here's a closer picture to show the detail of the leg. The pattern is fairly easy, you just have to keep track of what row you're on.
I have already picked out yarn for my third pair of socks but I will not, I repeat I will not, start these until either my first or second pair of socks is complete.
Happy knitting everyone!
- I started this blog on November 23, 2009 just because I wanted to chronicle my artistic endeavors and see "in black and white" how many different directions my artistic brain would go. I challenged myself to try different mediums and that this blog could be a platform to post my achievements and failures. I cannot believe it's been six years now! Over the past 6 years I've learned a few things from writing this blog:1. Art is in my blood, I will always be thinking or doing something artistic2. About 80% of my work turns out better than the original idea3. I am not a fast artist, I have to start on an idea and then let it sit for a while4. It's OK that my "artsy" brain sometimes goes in 1,000 different directions at onceWith all of this said I now consider myself a mixed media artist because I a lot of my talents cross over into other projects I've already started; It's a great life and I wouldn't change anything about my crazy artistic brain!
