** Ok that didn't show up well at all! It is called Simple Knitting by Erika Knight.
Inside are several projects I want to attempt, and two are socks. The first is a chunky thick sock knit on two needles. "Perfect" I said to myself, that will help me gain confidence before I start on DPN's. I've also been practising on my DPN's, which I'll show on Friday.
Anyway, I'm almost finished with the first sock, and feeling pretty proud of myself. A complaint about the book is that you have to "wrap and turn" to make the heel and I had no idea how to do it. The book doesn't show you!! I had to hop onto YouTube (much love), but I found a great video that really, really helped.
Besides that I've got another ski mask on the go, much to my daughters delight. She is a slave driver, and is nagging me endless to finish it so she can have one like her sister. In all honesty I get bored doing the same thing twice, but this is almost all 2x2 rib and stocking stitch so it is going pretty fast. The sooner it is done the sooner I can move on to something new!
I finished Lady MacBeth, which I was reading last week---loved it! I just love historical fiction, especially when it takes place in Scotland! Yesterday I started Pope Joan, and so far so good. At the same time I am reading The Omnivore's Dilemma, but that can be a bit dry so I like a novel at the same time.
Here is where I'm hopping this week, thanks for stopping by!
