Yarn Along......

8:05 AM

The past week I have been recovering from the Tour de Fleece and was able to pick up my knitting needles again. I finally finished my Jaywalker socks and immediately cast on another pair of socks. I grabbed one of my Tour de Fleece finished skeins .....a 3 ply in BFL. They just about flew off my needles! I took them everywhere including the lake.  I knit them 2 at a time and toe up. I did a simple vanilla sock with a fleegle heel and since I knit from both ends of the ball the colors are fun and don't line up and I am ok with that! These are going to be my most favorite socks.....they fit perfectly and are so warm and squishy......it's socky love!!

I also cast on for a new thing......About  month ago I picked up some adorable mini skeins in a gradient from Sunrise Fiber Co. they are  beautiful shades of blue. I happened upon the Pebble beach Shawlette the other day and knew it would be perfect for this yarn.

 This month at my spinning guild meeting one of the members taught a workshop on Kumihimo bracelets which is a form of Japanese braiding. It was so fun and I came home and taught some of my kids to make them. They are now braiding up bracelets like crazy and having a blast. I used embroidery floss for my daughters but my boys are using cotton yarn and they are coming out great. There are many sites on the internet to learn how to do this and get supplies. I can see myself using up bits of leftover sock yarn to make more.

I'm deciding what audio book to listen to next....I'm sure I will find some great ideas as I go through todays links on the Yarn Along! Happy Knitting!!

  1. I've been too nervous to try to knit socks. I have read books on it, and watched videos on it but it seems like it would be such a challenge. Was it difficult at first?

  2. I love the bracelets! I'll have to look that up and see if I can figure it out. Your socks are lovely as well. I REALLY must research how to knit two at a time.
