Yarn Along

A post of my current read and what is cast on my needles ~ Inspired by Ginny over at {Small Things}

Knitting Socks

I've been eyeing up the gorgeous socks that everyone has been making these last weeks on the yarn along posts and I finally just had to give it a try :)

I came across the ravelry pattern 'Most Basic Kids Socks', picked up this fun rainbow colored finger weight sock wool by Marks & Kattens and set to work trying to figure out just how to use a set of double pointed needles *grin*. Those are some tricky sticks! LOL

The first 13 rows were a basic knit, purl rib stitch and now I'm working on the 52 rows of straight knit which is going nice a quick but I'm finding it hard to steal little moments during the day to work on them so I think they will be my special project when we go and visit the inlaws. I always try to take something to occupy my time while we visit and this will be great! I just hope that I don't run into any problems with the pattern being a knitting newbie *grin*.

I'm still reading the Secret Garden but I also picked up a copy of Don't Make Me Count to Three by Ginger Plowman. I can't wait to have a peak inside of it but that will have to wait until after Christmas is over :)

Hugs,
Rosina

eeek, I tried to knit socks like that once...but I was like...11 or something, and it didn't work well, I was a slow knitter back then and after two months still had just a half of the first sock so I gave up...maybe I should try it again :D

LOVE THAT WOOL!!!!

That yarn is gorgeous! All my rainbow yarns seem to come out pastel when I try to dye them. Bah.

Hopefully the sun will come out soon and I'll hop onto the yarn along. (:

I know this sounds like a broken record, but - that yarn is just AWESOME! My girls would love socks knit out of that!

I have plans to knit my girls socks after Christmas, so thanks for the pattern link.

Blessings, Elizabeth
