Socks

I am still here. I've been working on family history research. But I was also in San Francisco & Las Vegas with my husband. He refuses to come all the way to Chicago in the winter because of the cold. Can't blame him actually.

Anyway, I made these socks on the flights. I loved working with the yarn but I will never use it again. There was a join in each ball plus, the balls were wound different. One I had to do from the inside & one from the outside. Very disappointing as I was trying to make them match.

I am still beading. I have decided what I'm doing for February so I'll try to get that done today. I still have one more day of February! :) February is Chinese New Year & this year it is my year, being year of the rat. I will be beading something to do with that.

Great socks. It doesn't bother me when they don't match up but for those it does they suggest starting at the beginning of a color and using the beginning of that same color for the next sock. I found I had to set more than I wanted to aside using that idea.

I get annoyed with those knots too. One knot occasionally I can handle but two knots in two balls?
