My socks are growing
I did not knit the leg part of the sock so long,
my first pair I made went further up my leg than I liked.
Using the magic loop is much neater for me.
I may have purchased more yarn for my ripple blanket.
I have extra, Black, White, Navy and Red
I want to make a large ripple blanket, using loads of different colours, with a random look, which for a neat freak like me will be harder. The yarn is 4ply, which I enjoy crocheting with, plus it makes a nice weight for the blanket. It's going to be a long term project for me, keeping me warm as I work on it through the winter months, not a cheap item to make, but fun.
The moonstruck yarn will make a warm winter item, scarf or hat, they were on sale at £1 each ball.
I am loving my socks, the magic loops works perfect for me, less gappy loops to sort out, no dropped stitches, which was a huge problem for me using four needles, plus only one set of counting. After watching a couple of youtubes, everything dropped into place and I am comfortable knitting in this way.
We had a lovely day on Thursday, afternoon tea was huge, we brought our cake home with us, which we enjoyed much later. The September sun is always welcome on walks along our coast. Thank you for your good wishes, we have been together 34 good years.
