Minding My Own Stitches expert advice. She is our resident sock guru for the YOP group.
I reread Susan's blog post about it and checked the label and there were no special instructions so we'll see how it goes..........I got Springtime and Fall so of course I started on Springtime.....
I really haven't gotten far enough to see much yet but here's a closer look.........
Has anyone ever worked with yarn like this? How does it just "happen"....is there anything special I need to do to make it turn out alright? It must be magic!
Here are Susan's socks in a different colorway.............perfect......I can only pray.....
Can you guess what it is now? A little WIP of an amigurumi bunny. I'm just starting to make the body now. I get the biggest kick out of these little critters. I might make myself a whole menagerie of them they're so cute!
I also started back on another WIP which I had barely just cast on when Christmas projects took over.............I haven't gotten too far yet but it's an enjoyable knit. It's a Bee
a few more preemie hats got done and I think I might be into April now.....catching up!
I measured the blanket I finished and it looks like I can get by with a yard of fabric for the backing and I found this wonderful tutorial on Pinterest for doing it. Her blog is Italian Dish Knits and she's on Ravelry too. She knitted a beautiful mitered square blanket then edged it with an I-Cord.....hmmmm, should I do that? Would it add more stability to the blanket? Then she hand stitched the backing to the edging and there is an overcast stitch to use so when the knit part of the blanket stretches it doesn't rip out your stitches. Someone was thinking! Brilliant! There are so many smart and talented people out there and I thank my lucky stars for all of you!
Hopefully, I'll be by later but there is supposedly severe weather on the horizon so we'll see.
