Wooheeeeee, it's hot!! 96 deg F today (bet 35-36 Celsius)
Other than cutting grass and helping put pea gravel in the barn, I will be staying inside doing laundry and trying to finish at least one sock. I started this sock (cuff down) on the Magic Loop, which I absolutely love, but when it comes to doing the heel, gusset and finishing, I prefer to do that on dpn's. Which works out great for me because then I can start the 2nd sock on the Magic Loop. So the update here is the first sock now on dpn's working on plain stockinette for a couple more inches before I do the toe. Meanwhile, I am working on the cuff for the 2nd sock simultaneously. I rarely have 2nd sock syndrome. :-)
I've been knitting some doshcloths over the past several months. I've participated in some exchanges which have been really fun and others I'm keeping until there is another emergency like Katrina. Below are some pics of some I've made and completed. They are all made out of 100% cotton.
I started a new sock project Wednesday night. I was having so much trouble casting on, it was very frustrating. After frogging it at least 4 times, I finally managed to salvage a cast on and was able to knit about 2 rows before bedtime. Thursday night I made more progress and it's shown here. I'm using Dancing from Knitpicks and I like it ok, but it wants to curl and twist alot even though I keep letting it dangle to untwist. It's very pretty and I love the colors, we'll see how it wears. You'll see the content of it from the picture. I'm using the Magic Loop method which is my preference for socks. I've used dpn's and they're ok, but I haven't tried the 2 circs method yet. It's on my list to do.
