This post was suppose to post on the 24th of Sept but somehow ended up posting with a date in Aug. So now I'm posting it so it's the next post in my blog. I'll be back in the next few days with some new progress shot of current projects.
I cast on at midnight, on 15 Aug and finished 7 Sep with plenty of time to spare for photos. The pattern was really easy to follow and it's one that I definitely wouldn't mind knitting again.
I finished my Bubbles Down the Drain socks (ravelry).
I really love this pattern. It's simple enough I can take it with me when I go out or work on while watching tv. It's a very easy to memorize pattern. I definitely see using this pattern for more socks. I could easily down size the pattern to make socks for the girls.
A new shot of the sock yarn blanket.
I almost have 3 rows done now. By my calculations I need a total of 36 rows, so 33 more to go. I know this is a very long term project. Right now I'm trying not to repeat the colors but I'm sure I'm going to end up reusing some of the yarns again. I know I want to put some kind of edging on the blanket but I haven't decided what I want to use yet. I'm thinking of using either Cascade Heritage or TLE's fingering weight solid series yarn for the edging. Both are good yarns although you get more bang for you buck with the Cascade Heritage. Either way I won't have to worry about that for awhile.
Pic of the girls in their new skirts.
Those of you who are friends with me on Facebook have probably already seen this picture. Bree wasn't very happy with me interrupting her play time. They both love their new skirts and have been wearing them every chance they get. We're starting to cool down now and are back to wearing jeans again because it's to cold in the morning for skirts/shorts.
I finished Kaity's socks.
She needed one since her big sister has one. I'm using Caron's Simply Soft. It's great for a blanket. It stands up to the abuse and washes really well plus it's super soft. I'm only using 4 colors (purple, yellow, blue and green) for Bree's. I used 5 colors when I made Kaity's blanket several years ago.
My prize for finishing Camp Loopy.
TLE order from the other day.
I wanted a new crochet hook since I've started a ripple blanket for Bree. I didn't want to pay the shipping just for a crochet hook so this lovely skein of Three Irish Girls Adorn sock yarn jumped into my cart. The colorway is Kate and I'll be using it to make something for my Kaity.
