Fibers on Friday & Fiber Arts Friday




I'm a little behind with my sock knit-along. I had a disaster with my previous attempt and had to frog the whole sock. It had taken me about 8 attempts to get that sock going so I decided that I need to start with a much simpler sock pattern and chose the 'Simple Socks Recipe' pattern. 

P1080559

So far so good, and because it's a simple stockinette pattern, I should be able to get to the heel without incident *touch wood*

To see the progress made by others, pop on over to Visions of Sugar Plums and check out some lovely projects over at Wisdom Begins in Wonder

  3. Yikes, I hate multiple-start projects sometimes. I'm glad that the Simple Sock Recipe is living up to its name and not giving you any trouble so far---especially since the yarn you're using is just gorgeous. I love the richness of the blue.
