I know it can be hard to be thinking of our Christmas gifts in the midst of summer - this is what we were doing yesterday ~
But, it is August already and I don't know about you, but each day passes so quickly for me.
I have been working on two projects this past week, both for my younger children.
At my local yarn shop, I saw this simple finished sock and was so excited to learn that I could knit socks without trying to manage four needles at once.
These are knit with a 2 x 2 ribbing - for my six year old daughter with small feet (about size 11/12), I cast on 16 stitches and knit a knit 2, purl 2 ribbing for the total length of the sock. It will be folded in half.
After done knitting two lengths, sew up the sides and toe with the blanket stitch. I added a little extra stitch on each side of the toe end as I was stitching, but that is all! Nothing fancy for sure, but a warm sock nonetheless.
Also, I found this adorable free crocheted vegetable pattern online and have been working on these.
Finally, I am continuing to find my Holiday Journal priceless. It has been so wonderful to put all of my thoughts down on paper instead of trying to keep it all scrambled up in my head.
How are your Handmade Holiday plans progressing?
Warm wishes, Tonya
