I have been really enjoying knitting socks again! And I really love the yarn that I bought last week! It is so soft and because it is a worsted weight it knits up very quickly. I am doing a plain ribbed sock using a very basic pattern by Ann Norling and the first sock is almost done!! Yay! I should finish it up today & then start on the second sock.
I have been listening/watching a couple of podcasts & on one of the last ones that I watched they had finished a pair of socks and had them on this little sock shaped thingie. So I instantly went on line to see what this was. Sock blockers! I need those! LOL 🙂 Apparently I should block my finished socks after I wash them the first time. This helps even out the stitches and just makes them look all even and pretty! So I will be calling my newly found yarn store this afternoon to see if they have them, if not I will be ordering them from Knit Picks. They come in 3 sizes so I’m thinking of just getting all 3 since I hope to be knitting lots of socks this year!
Here is the picture of my comfy socks so far!
Also this week I added my beloved yarn stash to my Ravelry notebook! That took me about 2 hours! I didn’t realize that I had so much yarn! But I love that now I can just go to my Ravelry page and pick a yarn and see different patters that the particular yarn has been used in.
I should not be wanting to buy more yarn since I already have so much, but I’m dying to go back to my new found yarn store & get something!!! I have a very busy weekend coming up so I should be safe this weekend from adding to my stash. I have the first of 3 weddings within 7 months to go to. The second wedding is in December and it is my daughter’s wedding!! So excited for that! 🙂
