Had a very nice Thanksgiving. The only bummer was that it rained and we lost most of the snow so the traditional sledding on Thanksgiving was a bust. Living by coastal mountains can make for interesting weather patterns. Winds originating in Northern China, moved east, took a sudden turn for Hawaii ,warmed up and then shot straight up to Alaska. From what I heard some of the lower 48 got some of our winter.
I have started the Christmas knitting and finished the washcloth.
Very soft… I’ll be wrapping the washcloth with some nice soaps for the gift.
Late this summer I got a copy of Cat Bordhi’s latest book.
Wow!!! Beautiful socks…
I viewed and studied them like works of art in a gallery.
For me this was no quick read. It is very well written, the instructions are excellent.
I wanted to pay proper attention learning the new techniques, now I able to, I started with one of the small learning socks Cat designed to teach “The New Pathways” of sock construction.
I like to
“kill two birds with one stone” accomplish two objectives with a single action… is there a less grusome analogy? So I thought that this little sock would also make a cute Christmas Ornament that I’m suppose to make for the guild’s Christmas potlock.
Here’s the result… a wee thing.
I used some homespun merino-silk fingerling weight on US#0’s, 4″ DPNs.
I’m so tickled how this turned out. I will be adding some adornments, I’ll show you when I’m finished.
