The socks I started I don’t know when…
Tried to finish them up for the fair last year, but thought I had way more left then I did.
Plus I was pregnant and couldn’t concentrate enough to do the cabling pattern.
But I actually finished them up in time for the awesome baby shower my knitting buddies threw for me a couple weeks ago.
The pattern, from Knitty, was really easy to follow. The only time I had trouble was when chart #2, which was shorter than chart #1, had to start repeating, and row #1 on chart #2 no longer corresponded with row #1 on chart #1. I found post-it notes to be absolutely necessary. Also a note – I converted these to toe-ups.
One FO down, about, well, I’m not telling how many to go. It’s none of your business. Let’s just say a few. Ok, a lot. Let’s just say I’m mastering the art of nursing while knitting/crocheting now.
PS…Happy Birthday Mom; I still miss you. I really wish you could have met Christopher. I really wish you could have met all my boys. They would have loved you.
