A fresh start and a new beginning for me. I lost my best friend – my husband. It was sudden and I am still in shock. So, it’s a new beginning for me. I will miss him and so will our Maggie.
I haven’t been knitting much the last month, but I did finally complete the Glynis Sock by Cookie A. I used Shibui sock yarn in color 1675 (Pagoda). I used a size 1.5 needle. I enjoyed the pattern. The only negative was having to move stitches in the leg.
I also completed one sock using Lollipop Yarns Christmas Carol. I enjoyed knitting this because of the striping. Too bad I didn’t have it finished for Christmas. So, maybe next year. I used a basic sock pattern with a size 1 needle. I need to cast on sock 2.
I only bought one skein of yarn. I guess I was too busy to shop for yarn. I couldn’t resist Gynx self striping BFL sock yarn in the color Velveteen. Susan B. Anderson designed a rabbit using this yarn. I don’t know if I will make the rabbit, but maybe I need to get another skein of this to make it as well as a sock.
Well, I need to get working on the Hitchhiker. So, I am off to get some knitting finished.
