I'll be back.

Hello old and new friends. My blog has been inactive but I am still around. I loom-knit, weave and have picked up the sticks to needle knit, too! My patterns page links to Ravelry and I will answer questions about those. Maybe someday I will be back to write more. We will see where life takes me.

Earlier this week, I pulled on my first finished pair of bulky socks. It's too bad they're too toasty for summer-wear. But they were my initiation before I could start my first teeny-tiny-yarn socks.

Bulky socks ... Can you tell which one is my second? It shows off cables that actually line up and a proper kitchener stitch! Someday, I might knit up a third sock so it has a proper mate.

Here is a sparkly sock on my new EvenKnit loom. OK, so it doesn't really look sock-like yet. I'm still trying to find my rhythm on this nifty new loom so they might take a bit longer.

I am trying out Isela Phelp's tulip socks pattern (PDF link). The yarn-over sounded scary until I realized it's just an easy-peasy e-wrap!
