One sock done!

Here 'tis. This is what has been keeping me busy for the last couple of days. Well, not that busy, life has been happening too, but still ... I have produced another sock! These ones are shorties, with a turn down ribbed cuff.

I love this pattern so much better than the other one, and I think it was somewhat easier too. I will have to work on my technique for the toe grafting, it's the only part of the sock that I'm not entirely thrilled with. There is a lady that comes to quilt class that can give me some clues with that. Hopefully this sock's mate will be just that bit better again. I should be like an expert by the time we all have a drawer full here!

I also adore the colours in this one, it's a super fun wool, I think I'll buy some more and make up some bits and pieces to go with the socks.

Nothing happening here on the quilting front. I have been making all kinds of busy to avoid it I think. I'm not sure if it's because basting is my least fave part of the process, and that's where I'm up to with the zig zag quilt, or if it's because I'm still not mentally ready to cut into the Lady Liberty fabric, or a combination of both! I think this morning I'll sew some more blue and cream blocks together, just to get myself motivated again.

On another topic, I realised a couple of posts ago I reached a 200 post milestone. Who knew I'd be able to find enough to say for 200 posts?!? It's been fun spending time with you all ... here's to 200 more!

Love it Tazzie. I think I'll give it a go this winter. Imagine the mess I could get into.

Well, look at you strutting your stuff in that hot-colored sock... The sock is great--just my colors. It knit up beautifully and very quickly. Congratulations on the blogging milestone too.

Cute sock! I grabbed some knitting for my trip to VA too. I'm working on another doggie sweater for Chesty. One of these days I may try to figure out socks or I may just stick to easier things like scarves, hats, and doggie sweaters.

Looks great. Those colors are like my favorite sherbet or something. =)

Here's to 200 more, indeed!

Congratulations on the 200 posts! The sock looks great, I think the secret with grafting the toe is not to pull it too tightly.

Wendy said...

Great looking sock and Congrats on the 200th post.
I hope my first sock looks as good as yours. I have my 2nd lesson next week.

The posts add up more quickly than we ever imagined they would, don't they. I'm now past 300 - can hardly believe it.

LOVE these socks! Learning to knit socks is going to be one of the first things I do when I retire. I've knit sweaters in the past, so I should be able to manage socks.
