Not alot of variety around here this week but plenty of progress anyway. I said last week that my Sock KAL had started and for me it was soooo much fun! I even decided to make another pair right away. The first pair (Adult) were too big by about 1/2 inch so they went to my Mother and the second pair (child) went to my kid and are 1/4 inch too small. *Sigh* So someone might be getting a pair of colorful socks for Christmas. Slight variations on pattern and off with another pair for "Midget" this time in blue. You can see them at the end of this post. That should keep you reading :) I think. Fortunate for me my whole family (the ppl I knit socks for) like ankle socks so it's way more worth the price of sock yarn, especially since I only buy it "on sale". I still have enough of this color to make 2 more pair for only 3 bucks it's almost what socks cost at the store.
We re stained the floors this week as well. Just didn't feel the first coat was dark enough and the second coat really added the shine and texture we were looking for. You can see a little foot down there too, someone decided to go running across my picture. All in all a unique pic if I do say so myself.
I don't know what to thing about this weeks clue to my mystery Wrap. It keeps going but I've decided to stop right here I just see no point in continuing when I dislike it so much. I do love the leaf part but I hate it when they break up repeats like that with half a leaf at the bottom and the other half continued at the top. Still I do love this mystery in the all together.
Good! You made it this far :) Here's the newest pair of socks for my girl, cast on from memory and modified for rounder toes. They look bigger but really that's only an inch and a half of work for 2 hours of conversation/knitting multitasking. I'm doing these from 1 skein so pulling one from inside and 1 from outside the skein. I knew that this would mean I'd have to make 2 pair this way to get them to turn out the same but I decided "why not". Then I remembered that knitting with wool means a different texture from each direction as well. I rubbed the yarn one way and then the other way and there isn't much difference with this yarn and since I'm making 2 pair I don't think it would matter anyway but it did give ma a moment of panic. Can you imagine wearing 1 nice sock and 1 scratchy sock, Ick!
