Time Flies....

Welcome to anyone who finds their way here. All my blogging these days is over at my homestead blog, 5 Acres & A Dream. Our old house has needed extensive repair and updating, so most of our time is spent on that. And the garden, and canning, and the goats, and the chickens..... My loom and knitting needles are sadly neglected.

Major duh.

A Quick Sock Update

The Checquerboard socks are slow in the making

Just checking in with a report that not much is going on fiber-wise except slow progress on the Checquerboard socks. I reached a snag when I was ready to start on the 2nd sock. It seems I left myself no notes or details about the first one, not even what size I was knitting. So. I had to recalculate and hope for the best. It appears that I've become more relaxed since moving to the homestead, which means my tension is looser! I'll finish up the cuffs when I see how much yarn I have left (a nice thing about toe-up socks). And no, I don't care if the colors in the check stripes match. :)
