My comfy socks are finished!!! I just need to block them now. I’ve never blocked socks before so I hope I do it right! Good news is they came out great! I loved the yarn & the pattern was quick and simple! The not so good news is they don’t really fit my hubby. hmmmm, he has a large wide foot and even though I measured the length, the width of the sock is too tight for him. So…. Guess someone else will get a nice pair of comfy socks! And I will be going back to the yarn store to get more yarn to make a new pair for him. First, I have to find a pattern that is a little wider. Guess I’ll head over to Ravelry to search, or if anyone has one or can let me know of one I would greatly appreciate it! I was also thinking since the pattern I used has instructions for 4 different types of yarn from fingering to worsted that maybe I could use the instructions for the sport or DK weight and use the worsted yarn….. I don’t know if that makes sense but I’m thinking it would be a wider sock. since there are a few more stitches. But here they are pre-blocked.
I also received my sock blockers from Knit Picks today! Just in time too! Yay! I love getting packages in the mail! And I snuck in an order of “spooky” yarn socks to make for a certain someone (my daughter). I have to say these sock blockers look huge! I bought all 3 sizes and even the small looks huge to me! I’m actually a little scared to use them!
I also started working on some dishcloths! Yes, I have taken this work on more than one project thing & ran with it! I have been wanting to make them for some time now & last week I decided to start going through some of my mom’s pattern books and came across one that was just for dishcloths called Love to Knit Dishcloths by Evelyn A. Clark. The patterns were super simple so I went to my stash and picked out a red and white skein and started. I am really enjoying knitting them. They are quick and easy. Something to work on that doesn’t take much paying attention 🙂
Oh and as I was going through some of my mom’s patters I found a pattern book from 1956!!! So cool!
Quick side note on the wedding this past weekend: The wedding was beautiful! My daughter’s best friend looked gorgeous. I got very emotional watching her walk down the aisle! Seems like just yesterday I was watching them run around the house and now they are all getting married and have grown up jobs! Time just goes by so quickly! I’m looking forward to my daughter’s wedding in December! We are in full wedding mode with the planning! All the big things are done and now it is just the little things to work on. But those seem to be the most fun so far!
