On The Needles

Not much has been happening on my needles for quite some time.  Way back on March 10th I showed this sock which was started using a long circular needle and trying to learn the Magic Loop method.  Well, that did not go so well.  After dropping stitches, forgetting which way I was going (after putting it down for a week or two), and having to rip back at least 3 times, I said enough was enough.
First attempt with Magic Loop
So I started over from the beginning earlier this week on my trusty dpns, and this is where I am today. Just about the same place as a month ago. Not much progress on these needles either, but I've only had a few minutes here and there to do any knitting,
Back to my dependable 5 dpns
Sorry about the bad picture,  

On a happier note though, I received these beautiful socks from Michelle of Michelle's Romantic Tangle. She heard I loved purple and I so admired these fabulous beauties when she posted them (she called them 'ugly' can you imagine)!.  They fit perfectly and feel so soft and wonderful on my feet and you should see the fancy pattern she used on them.  Michelle took much better pictures when she posted them about the particulars of yarn and pattern HERE.

Thank you SO MUCH Michelle!  I love them!  They go with several of my sweaters and are getting good use.  Everyone compliments me when I wear them too.  They of course think I knitted them myself,   Then when they see the fancy cable section, they know I didn't. lol

Linking up with OTN at Patchwork Times.


  1. Those socks are beautiful!!! I LOVE they way they pool...and I just know they are so comfy... must be something in the air cause the last couple of weeks have found me ripping out everything I knit. I've started at least 5 different socks and have nothing to show for it but a pile of wrinkly yarn. Started another pair last night..wish me luck...

  2. What a lovely gift. You will enjoy them for a long time.

  3. Very fun socks! Hopefully, you'll have a bit more time in the next week to work on the pair you've got started.

  4. I'm so glad you like those socks more than I did!
