A Very Cool Detour
I had to take a minor detour from my Petticoat Socks. I have been wanting to make these gloves for a friend of mine for quite some time. I spent last weekend obediently working on my socks so I completely forgot about them. These are the wrist warmers from Last-Minute Knitted Gifts by Joelle Hoverson. I had roughly 24 hours to make them. I knit like crazy, changing the pattern as I went. (Added four extra stitches and another round of the pattern to make them longer, and also made the thumb hole bigger) I finished them Tuesday at 11:00am and left my house to give them to my friend at 11:30. Last minute, indeed!
I have decided to wait to do the heel of my first sock. I am making the leg of the second sock instead. This will hopefully save me from the tedious task of knitting the dreaded second sock. I will turn the heel of sock #1, and then the same for sock #2, knit the toe of #1 and then #2... bada bing, bada boom, I will have two socks done at the same time. I tried bringing my sock to my knitting group tonight, but it's not a very good social project. I just kept frogging. Lesson learned!
I got the Knitting Olympics counter, woo hoo!
