Today was the first day of the Block Party Quilters quilt show, and I just got back in time to show you what I've been working on this week. (It's a great show, by the way, and I hope to post some photos soon.)
This is my very first, well second, toe-up sock. Actually this is the mate of the first one which was finished quite some time ago during a KAL hosted by the Knitters Brewing Company. It might even get finished soon! (In addition to being toe-up, which is challenging in itself, at least for me, it's also one of those patterns where you can't talk to anyone while you are knitting.Instead, you actually have to really concentrate or pay the price: FROGGING.)
After more frogging, I'm finally headed to the toe of my first Weeping Angel sock. The pattern has a very interesting way of making the heel and gusset, and it took me a couple of tries to figure it out. Now that I understand the pattern, I'd better not put off finishing Sock # 2 in my usual fashion, lest I forget!
This is my first Opal finish using the Dragonfly pattern. I love the yarn and pattern. Sock 2 will soon be cast on, I promise!
Meanwhile, during the rest of this week's spare time, I was working on a different kind of sock. Our quilt group makes Christmas stockings for the local Ronald McDonald house and these two are my small contribution. This is the third year we have done this project.
