KNITTING GAL

March 24, 2008

100th post and socks completed!


Back from Florida and I had a great time. Weather every day 80 degrees and the beach was the best. Blue water to swim in and warm sand to lie in. Lots of pretty shells to pick from too. I had fun with my sisters and my mom too. I finished a sock and a half on vacation (Sockota yarn- cotton and wool blend) and then finished the rest at home. I like the way they came out and I did the Kitchener stitch like a pro thanks to a You Tube demo from a nice lady called Judy. She made it so easy and now I can do it just right. I love You Tube. That is where I learned to darn holes in handmade socks and now I learned the weaving stitch just right. Before I always had lumps or the stitches didn't match. There is nothing like watching someone do it. How nice of folks to take the time to share their skills. I always say knitters are the best.


And, yes this is my 100th post. I can't believe that is has been just a year since I started to get to know all of you. I salute all my blog friends and fellow knitters. You are all the best!!!

Its a happy sock day!! good going. Had a reat vaca!! I will miss the calm of yarn and talk and napping too!! Nothing as wise as a trip that included lounging by pool, surf, or tv. good times had by me and by all. Fun to start my crochet again with my sis the needle clacker!!

I envy your Florida trip! Warm sounds so good to me right now! Great socks (I, too, just did the Kitchener stitch right!) and I'm so glad to see you knitting again. Do you feel like you have the mojo back?

Congrats on the 100th post...I, for one, am glad to have found you.

I am still struggling with the Kitchener stitch. I'll have to check out the video at home when I can get it to load. Computers at work are too slow. I just finished my first toe up sock. No kitchener to worry about but I'm not sure I like the short row heel and toe.
