So, I grabbed up some blue sock yarn and immediately started the second first sock! I have to say that this second first sock went much quicker than the first first sock. Probably because I knew the pattern so well.
The first second sock went well, in fact I can tell that I had relaxed just a little bit by then so it is just a little bit bigger than the second first sock, but I was not taking it out! It's a baby sock for cryin out loud!
Anyway, I knitted my little fingers to the bone getting these cuties ready to go by Monday night. (Thankfully not Sunday night as I had earlier thought!) Monday afternoon, I was weaving in the cute little ends and steam blocking the little handfuls. I was certainly impressed by how the steam relaxed the socks so that I could give them a few good stretches to get the kinks out. I never really thought that steam pressing was good enough, but in a pinch I think it is fine.
Monday night, the new mom was so excited about the home made baby socks. I took a quick peek and the new baby feet and decided that the socks would fit for several months yet. Yay! Now to work on the next pair, this time in a pink color.
Not much else to share really, I have almost finished another blue jean placemat for the placemat challenge, bringing my grand total to almost 3 of 12, I know pitiful! I have done a little weaving on the napkins, but I am doing it as yardage, so I haven't a clue how much I have done. The other 2 looms have not been touched. I asked my 90 year old Mother in law if she had any "get up and go" she could lend me. She told me that it got up and went a long time ago! :)
I will be camping next week, so I will miss the fun on Tuesday, and I am not sure I will have anything to post next friday. I'll bring my camera though, just in case.
Until next time, Happy Crafting, Tina
