These are like the never ending socks!
each one used same amount of yarn. Now just the ribbing. Doing the
knits thru back loop--I think it makes it stand up better. I have noticed that
a lot of knitters, like Yarn Harlot, only do about 1" of ribbing. I like to do
2" or more, depending on amount of yarn I have. I think this helps hold
the sock up better, and is stretchy for big calves....
got a little more done on the fun footie sock:
I also started a sweater, took a while to get good gauge. And I signed
up for ThroughTheLoops Mystery Shawl, and WendyKnits Mystery
Shawl. I think I will do TTL and wait on Wendy. Too much going on
at once, which is another reason to get the brown socks done!
Ruth got a little more done on her nice sweater:
Martha has been working on a cute tank top:
