Now Friday's are my day when my dad goes out for a seniors socialization group, and then I pick him up afterwards and take him to visit my mom (who has Alzheimer's and lives in a nursing home). It's always a nice visit, and when we leave I swing by the grocery store to pick up something quick for supper and come home to cook. Now when I got home yesterday, I took photos of my lovely project on the needles...a (drum roll please) sock. Good, that done, I wanted to upload my photos and link up to Patchwork Times for Friday on the Needles. WELL! Enough battery juice to take photos, but not enough to import them. Ugh! I think it is time to purchase new rechargeables cause these just ain't holding their charge long enough for me!
Ok, enough chitchat...bring on "The Sock"...
See Vickie M. even my couch has roosters in the print lol!
I cast on Friday morning. Frogged at least five times just the cast on. I'm really not good at calculating for the "long tail cast on".
I've never knit a sweater either, but I assume this is how I would do lovely cuffs as well. Loving my yarn, nothing fancy...Patons Kroy Socks in muslin. I'm also using the free pattern: Patons Kroy Spiral socks (to knit).
Feeling a sense of accomplishment just here at this point. That may very well change to "oh, and now I still have the second one to knit" once I manage to complete the first one lol. At least that is how I am with slippers.
So for what it's worth, here is my Friday on the Needles, just on Saturday. Hope y'all have a great weekend!
Oh and 's first hop of 2014 starts Monday. Let the fun begin!
Wake up to Kona!
