Hi knitters, It has been a busy two weeks and I had some surprise company for the last 5 days - so I was having to sneak in my knitting to finish my Project.
I had seen a stitch pattern in a child's sock that I wanted to knit for myself - that was my project for the Olympics. I adapted an adult sock pattern to use this stitch - not too difficult in the end. I also had purchased sock yarn that was already knit into a flat piece called 'Flat Feet' produced by Conjoined Creations (www.conjoinedcreations.com). The flat knit piece was hand painted; some of the choices were quite garish but the ones I saw knitted up turned out beautifully. The idea behind the flat knit piece is that it is easy to travel with - no ball to roll off your lap. I was eager to knit up this yarn and didn't wait for a trip. I watched much too much TV on opening weekend - it was raining outside! - and nearly finished the first sock! The second one was a close call, but the ends were sewn in last night! As soon as I take a picture of them I will try to figure out how to attach it to a blog :-). Signing off with warm feet, Cathy
