Finally a Finished Object
I finished my daughter's socks today--normally I am pretty good at knitting socks, BUT I had to unravel the toe decreases on both of these socks TWICE because I kept getting the length wrong. I won't even go into how I had to unravel the first sock because my gauge was 10 stitches per inch instead of 7.5. So truly, I count these as 2 pairs of socks since I basically knit them twice. I don't know if the picture shows it but the "girly stripes" Lorna's Laces yarn is really bright and cute--they are young diva's favorite colors--almost all of her summer wardrobe are those shades of pink and purple.
As you can see by my "knitalong" section, I have succumbed and joined the "Knit the Classics" knit/readalong. I have put my other reading on hold in order to delve into Middlemarch. I'm really excited about it--even after I saw how LONG it was :)
Have a happy Friday!
