I did it. I made a sock!!
It is a wonderful feeling, even if the sock is not so wonderful to look at. lol Now I just need to cast on the second sock. I don’t think these socks will ever really see the light of day very often. The leg of the sock is too loose. The foot of the sock should have been a little longer. And my somehow knitting inside out gave me a strange row of purl bumps around the ankle of the sock. But it’s warm and it’s cozy and it’s the first thing I have ever knit myself!!
I’ve finished a little more on the clapotis, but still haven’t gotten around to taking a picture of it. I will probably be working just on it for the next week or until I finish it. My mother’s bday is Sept 9th and I need to allow enough time to get it in the mail.
The first 7 panels of Kathryn’s Babette Blanket have been sewn together. The Babette is very deceiptive. You finish the first 6 section and think, wow I’m almost done. Then you look at the pattern and realize that the majority of the work is in the last few sections. It will get done eventually. lol
I’m still working off and on, on some Christmas gifts. Some secret gifts and some that I will take photos of and share soon.
Most of my time for the past two weeks has been spent cleaning my house. A deep scary cleaning. That has involved tons of trash bags of stuff leaving my house!! I have also decided that I want to get rid of as much of my yarn stash as possible. I would like to get it down to half of a rubber- maid container. So that is my goal.
