Hello everybody… Today is a very special day. Today is the day where I discovered that my socks, will in fact, FIT! I got to the gusset on both socks,decreased the first, and started on the second. I tried #1 on… and it fits just fine! It did not slip off or get slouchy. I still do not like the bleeding of the yarn, but I can handle it, knowing that they will fit the recipient!
I really don’t like posting pictures of my progress where one sock is not at the same section as the other, but this will have to do for now. I can’t get anymore knitting done until tomorrow morning on the bus and then during class.
Tomorrow is also a very VERY important day. It is my mom’s birthday, and it is the first year where I actually made her something, instead of begging my dad for money and I am excited for what she will think of it. I made her the beautiful Lonely Tree Shawl.
When these socks are over, I have no idea what to knit next…
My options are,
Artichoke Socks in another knit picks sock yarn
or another beautiful but slightly simple shawl by Silvia Bo Bilvia in, you guessed it, another knit picks yarn, this time in a gorgeous yellow color.
Let me know in the comments below what you think.
Until next time…
