Joining in with Ginny of Small Things this Wednesday for her Knit Along....
After trying to work a pair of socks on double pointed needles in the round, I gave up because it all felt too uncomfortable. I then searched for a two needle sock pattern because I really want to knit everyone socks and mittens this spring and summer - nice small portable projects to carry with me outside and in.
I came across this pattern and was so happy with my first sock. It fits Sarah very well. They are knit using Plymouth Yarn, Encore DK, 75% acrylic and 25% wool, purchased at our local yarn shop. For $3.90 a skein (50 gm), it should be about $5.00 for a pair for the children. For Sarah, who takes about a size 13 shoe, I knit on size 3 needles and cast on 48 stitches. I plan to increase or decrease in multiples of 4 to make different sizes for everyone.
Now that we have the two baby goats, I am eager to learn all I can about their care. I found this book at our library, Goat Song - A Seasonal Life, A Short Hisotry of Herding, and the Art of Making Cheese. So far I have enjoyed reading about this family's experiences.
Looking forward to hearing and seeing what you are knitting and reading.
Warm wishes, Tonya
