Over the course of the past month, I have been working on three different pairs of socks.
For each of the pairs I have been working on, I have finished the first sock, and have the second sock in the works.
This pouch arrived yesterday. I had ordered it from Thirty One Gifts. I am going to be using it for my knitting, when I take a project with me when I go out. Over the years, I have had many “purse projects”, and having this pouch will help keep my knitting together, neat and as untangled as possible.
I am trying to take advantage of the fact that I am only working 10 – 15 hours a week, and spending my free time knitting, all while I am trying to figure out what I am working towards.
Over the past couple of days I have also knit up a couple of yarn swatches to see how the yarn washes. These Yarns are a bit rough, and I wanted to see if washing would soften them up.
Yes, I did swatch the yarn for my Christmas Socks, because my socks feel a bit tougher than I would like, and I am really hoping they soften up with washing and wearing. I am not a fan of stiff wool socks.
