I'll be back.

Hello old and new friends. My blog has been inactive but I am still around. I loom-knit (and weave now, too!) but I seem to take more photos of my toddler than my crafts these days. She has that cute factor going for her. Because of this, I have started a tumblr called Tiny Taughts of our home lessons, crafts and projects. Please visit me there and I promise to come back here soon!

SOCKSS!

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!
