Needlework Tuesday -Let's Knit Socks Two at a Time
last week's post I showed you the yarn I was using and added a link to the pattern. Here's what it looks like with all the stitches cast on for both socks. It really would help if my needles didn't look so much the same. If you can get different coloured needles or wires, then that will help a lot.
Marie at Daisy's Book Journal has also started her socks. I'll update the link when she puts up her post. Marie has her post up now. She has a pic of her finished shrug and the start of her socks. We are encouraging each other with our sock knitting. yippee. Great to have someone to work with.
Michelle at Brain Angles - Invisible Ink has posted a picture of the cherry blossoms that she crocheted.
I'll be back next week with my sock progress. For now I need to get to my sewing machine and finish a gift for hubby for his birthday tomorrow.
I have started a new feature article on my other blog, Send a Postcard a Week. Each Sunday I am going to feature fabric postcards. My mother belongs to an online group that trades these cards every month. She has quite the collection and she has allowed me to take photos of some of them. This past Sunday I featured some 'white' cards as a sort of snub to all that stuff falling outside. Click on here and check them out.
