Thanks for your patience!
I've been down and out, but I'm UP and BACK! Just about over my crud too, YIPEE!
My WIP today (and for the months of January/February) is this very cool pair of socks. They are made on #2 dpns and the brand of sock yarn is Blue Moon. It's a very nice yarn, a little on the the thicker side, great to keep my tootsies warm.
Gosh! I just love the stripped pattern. I wish I knew ahead of time what sock yarn variations did what. You know, like flecks of color rather than stripes? I just am willing to be surprised I guess. I wear them under terribly conservative work pants (Dockers), so anything bright just cheers me up without offending the public, lol.
Does anyone else have time doing the Kitchner toe? I am reduced to tears with each @#$% sock. DH has to read it to me stitch by stitch, and I feel like a total dolt. He gets it, has it memorized even. I "know" in my head what we are doing...like sewing a knitting stitch...but man-o-man, I've made 2 pair of socks and cried four times! Blah! I've tried to do it on my own, but that makes it worse and I end up tearing it all out because I can't follow written directions and work the stitches. Craziness I tell ya!
OK, I'm back in the saddle, hoping to keep you slightly entertained. 8^)
