Finally Finished The Plunge

In 2007 when I was still relatively new to knitting I learned to knit socks. I knit them on two circular needles. I began knitting two at once, then realized I could finish faster knitting one at a time. I also learned to mark my rows, instead of inches, to get two socks of the exact same length. I joined the original 52 Pair Plunge. I did not finish my pairs within a year which was the goal. But last night I did finish the 52nd Pair and I still feel the achievement was worth the effort - despite the late completion date.

This is the very last sock of my 52 Pair Plunge.

Lapis Sock

Plain stockinette sock in Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks That Rock Medium Weight Colorway Lapis, knit on Knit Picks Harmony Needles US Size 3 (3.25mm).
The journey can be seen on my sock only blog at 52 Pair Plunge Gallery

Fair Isle Obession

This is what I have been working on, which is keeping me offline most nights.

The Glenesk Cardigan Designed by Jade Starmore

My third Knit Picks Sipalu Bag Designed by Kerin
I love watching the picture develop. I prefer fair isle patterns with the look of tapestry. I sometimes think I was born in the wrong century. I am reading one of Monica Ferris' needlecraft Mysteries, Knitting Bones. It is like sneaking away at lunch time to chat with knitting friends.

What I did Over My Blog Break

Yes, that's what you think it is.

I did a quick run down of some of the knitting I did during my unintentional blog hiatus. Check it out.
Also, I need you guidance. I have decided to save money and time by not going to the hair salon to get my hair washed and set. I was spending way too much - money that could be spent on YARN (or groceries). I got a bonnet hair dryer and some big rollers and my first attempt to roller set my hair was . . . interesting. Do you have any tips, links, sugestions that may help me out? Thanks!

Monday, March 23, 2009


Hi, ladies! Yes, it has been over a year since my last blog post . . . whoops. Let me catch you up . . . I knit a lot, I designed my first pattern and I am giving away the pattern with any size donation to Big Brothers and Big Sisters. Check out my blog for more details.
Whew, that wasn't so bad. Why don't I blog more often?

Making Progress

I finally took pictures of my Austermann Step socks and blocked my Forest Canopy Shawl in Wollmeise Hollerstaudn colorway. I also found a super easy hat pattern on one of my really old HGTV tapes. I whipped one up for my sister in brown to go with the scarf I gave her for Christmas. I am still trying to finish my Magnolia Afghan in Tudor Homespun, and several shawl projects. I am spending much less time online, and it shows in the number of finished objects. The time I spent taking photos and making posts today catches me up a little bit.
