Will that mess really be socks?
This beauty is my first flower for Molly's Knitted Flower Project. I had much better luck with it over the first attempt. I am not sure if it was my being tired or the pattern needing tweaked or a combination of both. I had emailed Molly to see if the flower should be closer to resembling a Madonna bra cup rather than a flower. Anyway this one is much better. If you have a few minutes to spare check out her project and support her research.
My Susie Hoodie is coming along. I finally reached a point where the sleeves joined the body. Wont be long before the birth of the hood.
This project has me a little scared. Learning to knit these using the two circular needle method. I have knit socks using dpns and one really long needle (magic loop i guess is the formal name). I want to determine what method I prefer as my method of choice. So far the two circular method is really kicking my butt but I have only gotten through round three so I really can’t judge just yet. They will be Woodsmoke Sock by Anne Hanson in the Knit Picks Essential Dunn Twist colorway. Looks like a big messy pile of needles and yarn if you ask me.....
