My sheep socks are done:
Now it just needs to get cold enough to wear them! They are sooooo beautiful ... but there is a lot of end-weaving-in to do.
I wove in the ends as I knit, and I am glad I did. There would be approximately 65 ends to weave in for one sock, and even for someone like me who doesn't mind weaving in ends, that is a lot. So if you are one of those people who has sweaters in the closet, all knit, just waiting to have the ends woven in, beware! You may need to find a weaving-in buddy that you can trade something with. Just sayin'.
My friend Barb and her husband Mark stopped by for their annual visit the other day, and it was great to see them. Look what they are lending me for a whole year:
Five audible knitting books! It's a Wonderful Thing!! I am so thankful to have good friends.
Here is my next project:
This is purple yarn for an Aran coat sweater for a little girl who loves purple! I'll tell you all about it next time!
