I am a bad, bad blogger:-(

Why am I such a bad blogger these days? Well because I've been knitting of course. Not to mention trying my hand at a bit of crochet. I find that the less I blog the more I knit. Strange huh? I've finished several projects and have plans for more! It's nice to finish things for a change. I'm usually such a good starter that finishing is a challenge. This has been nice.

Anyway, I do have pictures to make up for it. I will break up my posts into smaller bites so I'll start with socks.

I joined the Six Socks Knit Along a while ago and procrastinated until the July 26th to start the Chutes & Ladder Socks. Part of it was just too much other stuff going on and part of it was fear. I haven't done a lot of cabling and the idea of doing it in socks was too much for me to handle. I had to work my way up to it. So I started on the 26th and finished both on August 1st. I did the magic loop technique, which I love, and I think they knit up considerably faster. This is the completed pair, a closer view of a single sock and view from my eye.







I worked out a lot of my issues with these socks. This weekend I will be teaching a sock class at a LYS. I'm kind of nervous but feeling a lot more confident after these socks. I'm currently working on a hand out with helpful tips so if anyone has any helpful tips I would appreciate it. I'd love to hear from other "sock teachers" as well. Feel free to send me good vibes!
