Been Knittin...

I haven't been stitching the last couple days. I was wanting to get those socks done for my old coworker. I did finish them, but they are a little small. I'm hoping she has smaller feet than me.

Finished Lorna's Laces Socks
Lorna's Laces Shepherd's Sock Georgetown.

They are definitely not perfect. They have two different heels and there is a big hole that I tried to sew up in one of the heels and they have visable ladders going down the side. Oh well, what can I do?? Well, I think what I decided to do is finish up another pair of socks I started in 2005...

Trekking Socks
Trekking XXL #100.

These will definitely be big enough, no visable ladders and no holes in the heels. The colors are a little funky. Both of these socks were made from the exact same skien of yarn and they look totally different. So anyway, I've been knitting away, trying to get these socks finished. I really want to get them out in the mail to her. Although I think it will be too hot to wear them anytime soon!

In a little stitching news I got the rest of my order from Mary Kathryn today.

More stash from Handcrafts online

I got some 40 ct. Light Espresso by R&R and some 32 ct. Light Mocha Belfast along with some needles and the Whitman Tin Red Sewing Set. Well, the kids are needing me so I'd better go! Write later!!


  1. Pretty colors on the socks. What type of yarn did you use?
