I’ve been absent for a couple of weeks but I have been knitting. While we were away in Oregon I casted on for another pair of Monkey Socks by Cookie A and continued to work on Dawn’s Twisted Scarf. I love the yarn for both of these projects. The socks are Liberty’s Yarn from Mt Ranier, Washington in a merino, cashmere, nylon blend. The scarf is Star Light from Universal Yarns that I like because of the shimmer thread that runs through it.
I finished the first sock last Saturday and casted on the 2nd sock on Monday. I still have several projects zzz’ing and might take one to Maui next week.
On Saturday I picked up a Sock Loom at JoAnn’s with my 50% off coupon. Why I thought this might be fun, I don’t know. So far I feel like an idiot. I can’t seem to get the tension loose enough to easily make the stitches slid off the pegs easily. The lady on the dvd makes it look so easy. There is a Sock Loom knitting group on Ravelry that is very supportive but this might not be for me. I have no problem knitting socks the old fashion way so I may gift this to a friend in Maui while I’m there.
Hope you all are having (or had) a good Wednesday.
