An Update

It seems I have way too many projects "in progress". Just this week I took my first class (of a total of 3) learning to make socks using DPN's. I have made a pair of socks using worsted yarn and magic loop technique. I've also got a sock I started some time ago, with fingering weight yarn,top down using magic loop. I must be crazy to try knitting socks using "fiddly sticks", but I like that I'm learning something new and who knows, it may come to be my favorite way to knit socks.

This is how far I've gotten since class: Pattern is Wise Hilda's Basic Ribbed Sock and am using Madeline Tosh Sock in Olivia colorway.

I'm also still working on the Susie's Reading Mitts. Having trouble with the thumb - some gaps in there I didn't want so have tinked back a few rows. I also did a little personal designing of the pattern, which means I didn't read the directions correctly and cast off without doing the turning row. The stockinette stitch at the top rolls down nicely and it does look okay.

Now back to working some more rows on the socks before next Tuesday's class!
