Oops!

See that orange stitch holder? I dropped a stitch waaay back 12 rows just at beginning of the heel flap.

It looks farther down into the sock than it really is. I hope I don’t have to rip it back into the leg but just to the row with the orphaned stitch.

Good thing I like this yarn and love my daughter or I wouldn’t be too happy with this pair of socks right now.

PS Happy Birthday to my Wonderful Brother! 🎉🎈🎂❤️

After the untangling

After untangling the yarn, spending a few more days helping my sister, seeing our grandkids one more time*, and getting my ankle working right**, I finally got back to my knitting.

One November sock finished and the second sock started.

This pattern isn’t hard at all but does require some fine motor skills when doing the Honeycomb Knit stitch. Fortunately, it’s only once every six rows.

I’m really liking the stitch definition on the leg portion and will try to get this second sock finished soon. The depth of color is awesome!

My grandson’s redyed socks are next up…and I can choose the pattern myself!!

*Our two grandkids that only live an hour and a half away are moving. Today. To Michigan. That’s about a 7-8 hour drive.

**I started physical therapy on my left ankle/foot to get some relief from the Achilles Tendonitis that has been plaguing me for several months. It’s a slow process but seems to be working.

I should have known better

I had to go out yesterday afternoon to pick up a few things for my sister. When I got back she said there was a little accident. I was expecting a bodily function type of accident but that wasn’t the case.

One of her greyhounds tried to help me with the sock I’m knitting for my daughter.

Fortunately no stitches were lost or dropped. It’s just going to take me a while to untangle and rewind that yarn mess back into a ball.

I should have known better than to leave my knitting unsecured.

Karate Kid socks

I started the Karate Kid’s socks last week and texted his mom a picture to see if he still liked the pattern.

The colors are beautiful but not quite for a nine-year old boy so I am going to redye the yarn in darker greens and blues.

Hopefully we will both like the bolder colors better…for a Karate Kid pair of socks.
