Scrappy Socks are done and they are the last FO of 2008! The very bright, unmatched socks are now a nice matched pair! Youngest Son was thrilled with them.
Based on: Work Socks
Needles: US 3 & 4
Yarn: Leftover sock yarns
Modifications: CO 56 using two strands of sock yarn throughout. One inch ribbing, seven inches of leg, Dawn Brocco's afterthought heel done on size 3 needles, seven inches of foot, wedge toe.
Sock for Second Son CO. Same basic idea as socks shown above. Pattern in leg is a variation of Blue Berry Waffle Socks, a favorite of Joansie; 2x2 ribbing for an inch, four rounds of st st, four rounds of 2x2 ribbing. Repeat. A nice and stretchy leg! These socks, too, will be made from various leftover sock yarns and then dyed a dark color: black, blue, green or burgundy.
Spent a quiet evening with BFF, F, and his hubby. We all realized how old we were when we started checking the clock every five minutes from 11:00 on! By 12:05 we were in the car to take me home. Late nights, even New Year's Eve, are just not what they used to be!
As I read through the blogs, many were posting their knitting wrap ups:
- Sixty five pairs of mittens
- Thirty nine pairs of socks and slippers
- Twenty seven hats
- Six Sweaters
- Three Neckwarmers
- Two pair legwarmers
- Two blankets
- Two toys
- One dishtowel
Keeping the "We" in "Yes, We Can!"
Save money by using your crockpot.
Enjoy this funny and thoughtful look back on 2008.
Wouldn't this idea make a cute clock, substituting little knit socks or mittens instead of erasures? Such a good idea to make a totally unique gift for someone!
Stacy's resolution: Live Life More. Good one!
