....so I just had to knit up another pair. The pattern is Socks of Kindness: a Recipe. The stitch pattern is easy, but looks intricateI loved how they turned out and right away I cast on for another pair of the same. The yarn was pretty much the same as well, which added up to a lack of interest after a fashion. The first pair was camouflage and the second looked very much the same, instead of green- the major color was blue. Talk about second sock syndrome, second pair syndrome is worse.! I learned my lesson this time :) I think I need a break from socks.
I always have a take-a-long project in the works.
The latest one finished is another baby prayer blanket with yellow and green alternating stripes. This was mostly knit while I was doing my physical therapy and as a passenger in the car. Easy, boring knitting as well.
Now I need to find a new and different project to work on. I have some ideas. but first I need to finish a counted cross stitch project ( "A Little Girl's Fancy" by Paula Vaughan) that has been in the works for about 20 years on and off. I am very close to be done!! I HAVE to complete this before moving on!
Here it is in the summer of 2006:
It was supposed to be finished that summer. That did not happen. Every summer since I have worked on it a little bit, but I must admit I get tired of it very quickly.
Hopefully by my next post I'll have a finished piece to show you. At least I have good intentions!
Hope everyone is well and enjoying what's left of summer. Happy Knitting :)
