Toe Up and Finished

Lucy socks are done. The last one started with stripes like the first and then morphed into swirls. I'm calling them fraternal twins.

The Socks that Rock yarn makes a nice sturdy sock. It might come in handy if it snows tonight!

It is ironic that the day I finish my first toe up socks, Wendy posts very detailed instructions that further explain her method which I used. I did most everything right. You'll have to squint to see what I am talking about. (It only involved how I pick up the wraps and knit them. Very technical stuff)

The next item on the agenda is Warm Hands Warm Hearts Mittens for Grace. The pattern is by Maggie's Rags, and I am usuing Debbie Bliss cashmerino dk in color 18009 on size 4 needles. I am making her the size medium, although they seem like they will be a little big. This one I finished up just now, and I will hurry and cast on mitten number two in time for the big freeze tonight. Luckily children have small hands.

What an adorable mitten! and the STR socks are great too! You know what I did after great deliberation, contemplation and guilt over the huge extravagance? I joined the 2007 STR club. ....SO I will soon get to try the STR yarn!(guilty pleasure)
