Since i finally finished Deb's vest, she's...ahem, allowed me to cast on her "Socks That Rock" yarn that she stood in a crazy insane line for at Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival back in May. Well, ok...i asked her to stand in the line and so Amanda joined her so she wouldn't be alone, while Carla and i sat and knit on a bench. That silly Amanda, she bought three hanks of STR at the time when she didn't even know how to knit socks yet. LOL! But i digress...
So, i cast on for Deb's new socks. Prior to casting on i asked her if she wanted just plain socks or if she wanted to look at patterns? She said plain was fine. So i had knit 20 rounds of a cuff and 6 rounds of the leg when i let her get on Ravelry and she started looking at patterns. Bad move! She found a pattern she wanted me to try. I made her frog her own darn sock. LOL!
She decided on "Widdershins" from Knitty.com. I think she just likes the name?!
Yeah well, she's forcing me to bite the bullet and learn how to knit "Toe Up". I don't mind telling you that it took me three or four tries to get started...and my increases on the toe looks a little wonky, i think...but i'm giving it a whirl. I've only gotten the toe increases and maybe an inch of the foot done. I'll work on more of it today. And maybe take a pic or two.
That's what's going on here.
