Sockus Sockii?

Isn’t that a nice looking sock?   It sure did take me awhile but I finished the first sock from Regia Silk.  What started out as a gift for one person has changed to a gift for another.  So that is why the sock looks a little big as modeled on my foot in the second picture.  It’s for a man’s foot and not mine.  lol

I discovered midway thru the sock that I did not have enough yarn.  I bought the last two skeins Margaret had at Gourmet Yarn.  After a little whining on my part she agreed to order more.  I probably only need one more skein as I have at least 2/3 of a skein left.  It takes alot of yarn to knit larger socks.  lol

I started a scarf out of Cascade 220.  I recently got a stitch pattern book called Beautiful Knitting  Patterns (thank you Rebecca for showing me your copy—I knew I had to have my own when I saw all the pretty patterns).  After several botched attempts to do a few elaborate cable designs I realized I did not enjoy doing cables.  If I can’t enjoy the knitting I’m doing I get frustrated and will not finish.  So I flipped thru the book and found a pattern of knits and purls that show a pattern of seed stitch within a border that really makes it pop.  Pictures later.

I signed up for a mitten class at Gourmet Yarn but it was rescheduled from last Saturday until this coming Saturday.  Sunday is guild and so it looks as if I’ll have a weekend filled with knitting.  What more could a girl want?
