WIP – Knitting

June 14, 2008 at 1:55 am 6 comments

Seeing Tara’s knitting got me inspired to pick up those sticks again.  Yarn, needles, book, girls and I all headed outside to play (them with their toys and me with my yarn).  Casted on and worked a few rows of the ribbing then worked on it some more after everyone went to bed.

As far as the patterns in the book, some of them aren’t really my taste.  But the lace patterns in it are simply beautiful.  Hopefully I won’t end up frogging this one like I’ve done with other socks before in the past.

On a side note………………

You are their teddy bear, personal jungle gym, piggy back through the parking lot, skip down the road (because they love to see Daddy do that), wear pink headbands, and play ballerina Father that they’ve always wanted.
Happy Father’s Day honey!

    Glad I inspired you to get knitting!
    Wanted to share this: http://sothathappened.typepad.com/main/2007/10/my-le-slouch-fi.html
    I found this while browsing around. Similar to Felicity, but different too. She links to the pattern. I may do this one next.

    Good luck with the socks!

    That yarn looks yummy. 🙂

    What a sweet tribute to your husband. You and your kids sound blessed! 🙂

    ~Tara~ That hat is so adorable. Might have to give that one a go. Thanks for the link.

    ~Renna~ The yarn is so soft. I would love to make a sweater or something out of it to be cozy in. And yes, my girls and I are truely blessed.

    It’s good to see you’ve picked up the socks again. I find knitting them rewarding and I don’t think I will ever knit sock for anyone but me… well.. maybe if I have a child someday.. then I’ll think about it. I’ve just learned the 2 socks at a time on the circular needle.. Lots of fun. I have a pair started but I won’t get them done anytime soon. Good luck!

    Well, while I wait to find the perfect ladybug embroidery pattern, I need something that I can take outside with me while the girls play. So I figured knitting would be the perfect thing. By the end of the summer, I’ll start knitting up some hats for all of us (and a scarf for James that I promised him 2 winters ago).
