Pink socks

I’m aware I’ve not blogged much recently. I blame the fine weather keeping me in the garden and also my upcoming wedding.
I try to complete a small wedding job everyday. Whether it is updating my guest list, answering an email or researching ‘mini-moon’ venues for a couple of nights away after the event. I find doing something everyday stops the panic rising and switches off those busy voices in my head thus allowing me to sleep!

However, every evening I do a little knitting or crochet.

I’ve just finished these socks.Pink knitted socks

Although I somehow felt a bit of a fraud it made a lovely change, working up a pair of socks in DK.

They were not without incident. After admitting to myself that my previous 2 pairs have been a little on the roomy side, I came down one size and cast on the number of stitches for a ‘large child’. All was going well until somehow I started the toe too soon.
On trying them on I found the heel disappearing under my foot. After much muttering I convinced myself that they would stretch, and left them out to block.

Spot the difference?

However last night, seeking perfection, I undid the toes and added another half inch. I used the brown section of the stripy yarn for both toes.

I’m glad I did.

The weather has turned cold again. This bank holiday weekend I’ll be doing a lot less of this.

About lovelucie1

I cannot sit without something in my hands to sew, crochet, sketch etc. This becoming something of an addiction. In fact, I start to get twitchy if I am stationary somewhere, waiting for an appointment, waiting for my daughter, away with work, without some project to keep my hands busy. Minutes wasted make me anxious. This blog logs my progress to raise funds through my creations to feed my textile habbit.

  5. Well they will be warm and cosy in DK. I made bed-socks in DK and it did seemed easier and quicker than 4 ply. Your wedding should definitely take priority over blogging much as I enjoy your posts.

    • My first pair took me forever. But I’m a lot faster now, to the point where I really need something with a pattern in it to keep me interested. Try a pair in dk. They fly!
