Now for the progress or rather lack of it on the YOP front........
This particular project was 1/2 done but there was a gap where I first joined it in the round and another a few rows up. It kept bugging me and I mentioned it to a fellow knitter at the LYS and she "googled" it and found "the error of my ways" and how to fix it! See where it's joined there at the top? No more gap! And this is how you fix it
You all probably know this technique but I didn't and I was very grateful to the woman at the yarn shop who pointed it out to me. So, in case you didn't know this little trick I thought I would pass it on.Meanwhile, I was able to pick up the supplies for what I think is the last Christmas present. Now, I just need to get busy and make them all! LOL!
Isn't it darling?
I also found the yarn for my next socks...........these are Susan's Hudson Bay socks that she just finished using her pattern which is free here
Coloring Book Yarns but it seems the minute Susan mentions someone on her blog they sell out so check back later if you're interested in any of them. I love Susan's blog and I have never gone wrong with her recommendations on anything. She also shows how to wind your yarn that way....I have not tried it yet. Plus she has lots of drawings for winning books, yarn, project bags etc.
DISCLAIMER: Susan was NOT driving when that picture was taken! LOL!
Have a great week everyone and I hope I have more to show for myself next week!
