is my time. ‘cuz when I give my time, I am giving a portion of my life that I will never get back.
When my cyber-sis expressed how much she would love her beautiful designs knit up by me, without hesitation, I cast on Pretty Little Things, two-at-a-time, this afternoon to work on during guild meeting this evening.
Due to chaotic schedule this week taking older teen to District High School Honor Band rehearsals, I chose light worsted yarn, in Size 1 needles instead of fingering yarn and Size 2 needles.
The teeny tiny goof on the fair-isle motif is miniscule so I forged ahead with a possibility that I may go over the center stitch with the main-color yarn. No gut. No glory.
The folded, picot hem adds a little bit of oomph to the socks to make the ordinary extraordinary.
Mine isn’t as pretty as the designer’s. But, I know I will never want to get out of bed again with this pair of comfy, toasty warm socks. Pretty Little Thing (designer’s sample below) is a great design and super easy to knit up. Purchase your copy here–a nice treat for your feet.
Today’s free pattern (to Ravelry members) is Adult Knights Helmet. It’s so dang cute. Thanks, Brie Crochet. I’m looking forward to hooking this adorable helmet up during Ravellenic games. How about you?
Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!
