One Sock Down

I have completed one sock from the Trekking XXL yarn I received for my birthday. As you can imagine I haven't worked on much else. I started it on Sunday and finished yesterday (Thursday) so I figure 5 days to make one sock isn't too bad!! Onto the next one. I did notice in pictures of others socks made from Trekking that the two socks do not match. Being the perfectionist that I am ... I am hoping that this doesn't bother me too much. I just love the colours!

I did finish a preemie baby hat to go with the little dress I finished last week. I am debating whether I should make some booties to go with this outfit our just send it off as is. I am thinking the dress is a not long enough to cover the babies feet so booties may be in order. The only problem is I don't have a pattern to make booties that small ...

I am still looking through my Japanese knitting books and trying decide which patterns to try first. I have swatched 4 of them so far and just love the intricacy. I want to make a baby sweater for my friend Linda who is due at the beginning of June using a couple of the patterns. I am just waiting to finish my socks and a pair of booties (if I decide to make them) before heading into a new -- and challenging -- project.

Check out Stitches of Violet to see some of her progress with a pattern from a Japanese knitting book she purchased. Just beautiful!

Hi Cheryl,

I just wanted to say how much I admire you ...

For doing all you do for charity and for being so good at what you do!

The pictures that you share of things you've made are wonderful and I so envy you. :-)

Will this bootie pattern work?

Oh, this sock is *so* gorgeous - what a great Trekking-colourway this is! And I'm absolutely impressed by the more-than-cute baby set that you did - very beautiful indeed! Happy Knitting!
