WIP It Wednesday

Since I did finally finish my first pair for Box O Sox 2018, my size 0 HiYa HiYa circular was open for a new pair of socks to be cast on. As I planned, I started the Hugs and Chocolate Kisses socks with Dream in Color Smooshy in “Spicy Smooches.”

I do enjoy a twisted rib for cuffs on socks…a little out of the ordinary. I ended up with one and a half repeats of the rib. And now on to the first six rows of the X and O Lace Pattern.

Warm in Florida again for Purloined Monday

Once again it’s Monday and you know what that means…purloining a little Monday Q&A courtesy of Kathy B at Compassionknit in Wisconsin. Here goes:

*Have you asked your kids to do something you wouldn’t do?

This one stumped me. The answer is more of things I did as a youngster that The Prophet doesn’t like to do or didn’t want to do…like read a book for fun or have a party at the house when we weren’t home. Continue reading “Warm in Florida again for Purloined Monday”

Getting Used Q & A

Once again on this fine Monday, I am purloining a little Monday Q&A from Kathy B at Compassionknit in Wisconsin. Here goes:

*Can you knit something by “heart?”

Once I get into the rhythm of a pattern, it becomes a little bit by heart. But I really still double check the pattern because sometimes my mind wanders and before I know it, I’m on a different stitch and frogging it back. Continue reading “Getting Used Q & A”

Finito Friday

Finally! A finished knitted object and it only took the ride to and from Sarasota to A Good Yarn to make it happen. It’s The Prophet’s second Lightning Flame Hot Rod hat. Unfortunately, the first one (after of course saying too many times to count not to wash it in the washing machine and dry in the dryer) went through the washer and dryer and shrunk and felted. So knitted version 2 with superwash…combo of Cascade 220 Superwash and Cascade Pacific. Continue reading “Finito Friday”
