Last weekend we had a 'good old fashioned' Montana Blizzard. I spent the weekend designing these socks. What better way to spend a weekend when you can't get out and go anywhere? I named these socks "SnowDaze Toe-Up Socks".
I just finished another toe-up sock design. I named these socks "Shells and Eyelets" because they remind me of sea shells. These were fun, fun socks to design. The yarn is from KnitPicks.
I also have been working on my new weaving loom, and this is what I have done so far:
I think I will make this into a knitting bag. It is 13" wide, and so far I have 8 1/2" done. I have a LOT to learn, but it's been fun! This is my first weaving ever, and I should have chosen different yarn, but it's a learning experience, and one I have really enjoyed.
Well, we made it through Christmas!! I made several of the gifts this year. I made scarf/cap/mitten sets, some purses, some necklaces, some stitch markers, and some scissor/tool totes. Everyone seemed to like what they got.... I HOPE, anyway!
Now I've managed to get back to my sock knitting and was able to complete some that had been waiting on the needles for me to get back to them! :)
This is my Spiraling Eyelet toe up socks. This is my latest sock design. The yarn is from KnitPicks, and is Gloss. I have the pattern uploaded, and the link is above. :)
This is another pair of my Spiraling Eyelets toe up socks. The yarn is roving that I bought from ilashdesigns, and her etsy shop is here. It was very nice roving to work with, and I can sure recommend her shop. :)
These socks are made from my Diamond Chains toe up sock pattern. The yarn is Debbie Norville. I really like the softness of this yarn, but it splits very easily so can be difficult to work with at times.
I am working on a simple sock design now, and am almost done with the socks. Then I will have to write the pattern up, and can post pictures of it. :)
