The end is in sight

The end for the socks I started about a year ago, that is! I'm about 2 rounds away from decreasing for the toes.

The second one has gone together a lot more quickly than the first and I'm really starting to 'get it.' Now I can't wait to start another pair. I've learned a few things along the way. For instance, no matter what the pattern tells you, it's a good idea to try on as you go to make sure the sock fits. I had to tear out about five rounds because the sock was waaaay too big around. Now it fits just right.

I think I've said this before, but I'm jealous of anyone who can knit or crochet a whole pair of socks in an evening.

I need to go out and buy yarn for some projects, including a baby blanket I started a few months ago (and put away to make Christmas things) and the white and pink baby outfit. But it is 13 degrees outside and I'm not sure I want to go anywhere. Brrrrrr!

  1. Are you knitting or crocheting the socks? I've yet to find a good crocheting pattern for socks. It's still bitter cold here and I'm not going anyplace. Except to bed for a nap. lol
