Another Day, Another Sock
I finished the purple sock that I was recently working on. Since it's more stripey than I like, I'm not going to make the matching pair. I might just make a bunch of mismatched socks of colors I don't like.
After I finished the purple sock, I got started on another that I really like the speckle pattern on. To keep or gift, that is the question.
In order for my socks to look good, I also ordered a set of plywood sock blockers from etsy. I'm waiting for it to ship from Ukraine. I can't wait to have nicely blocked socks.
Socks and More Socks
I'm working on my 2nd pair of socks with some Mad Tosh Merino Light, colorway Mindful. The color variations is a little more stripy that I thought it would be.
The COVID-19 pandemic is still going strong, so still WFH, still crafting to keep sane. I started knitting again and decided to go with a project that would have quick turnaround time. Socks! Previously, I had only made 1/2 pair and thought it wasn't fun at all. But I gave it another shot with the Printemps Ankle socks pattern. It was much easier this time around. And the yarn is squishy and comfortable under my feet. I just ordered some sock blockers from Etsy.
I also started making Zip Around Pouches to use up my collection of canvas. Unfortunately, I don't have a printer, so i had to resort to displaying the PDF pattern for the circle on my computer screen and tracing it at 100%. It may explain why my circles are so wonky. Wonder if there's a way to make them more stiff.
Crafting and creating keeps me sane and happy. Previous projects listed here.
