What’s up?

Good morning all, I hope you all had a nice holiday weekend.

I am as busy as a one armed paper hanger today!

Our Wednesday morning Craft Group at Church, has decided that May 30th would be a good day for a Craft sale and tea.

This is number 3 of the 5 I'm making for the sale.

What more Socks!

Sock washing

The question arises; can anyone knit too many socks?

Over Christmas my hands began to shake and I noticed an uneasy feeling when reaching into my purse, something was missing! I always carry a small parcel with a pair of socks in progress. Between Christmas and New years, I finished up both pairs that I had been making.

My Favourite Top-down socks

These worked up just as nice as My Favourite Toe-up socks.

Knit by the Dozen Socks. Note the Kermit the Frog toes, heels and cuffs! Modification: Inserted heel rather than Short row in the original pattern.

Knit by the Dozen Socks. Note the Kermit the Frog toes, heels and cuffs! I feel very happy wearing these babies!
Modification: Inserted heel rather than Short row in the original pattern. Magic looped.

I developed this idea last year; that one pair was not enough! So now I work on one fancy pair and one plain pair. The plain pair are knit when I am with my fibreholic friends. The fancy ones are just because ;0)

His and Hers Socks both my design
