So Close I Can Taste It

My Roller Rink Disco Vanilla socks are in the home stretch! Just a smidge more 2×2 rib to go. 

I’m secretly sad that these won’t fit me. My sister will love them and she’s totally knit worthy but the yarn is just so awesome! It’s the Montford fingering from Twist Fiber studio in the Roller Rink Disco color.

I should have enough yarn left to knit a second pair with contrasting heels, toes and cuffs. At least a short pair anyway. Maybe even a plain pair of yoga/pedicure socks. So that’s some consolation but still kind of a bummer.
Happy Knitting!

And So It Begins

I’ve finished the garter section of my Old Man of Storr shawlette.


There were a couple of nights that between the late hour and a glass of vino that caused a few dropped stitches☺️. I tried using my double ended crochet hook to fix them but ultimately I hated how the tension looked. I tinked back the 200+ stitch rows and reknit and it was worth every redone stitch. Now the garter is perfect and my stitch count perfect!

I’ve installed a lifeline (black crochet thread) and tomorrow I’ll start the lace rows! Wish me luck

Happy Knitting!!
