Yarn Along Wednesday

It is Yarn Along Wednesday and time to link in with Ginny at Small Things and post something about reading and making.

reading and knitting

I have returned from my holiday with my son and our  friends from BarwonHeads.  I took a stack of library books for the children and myself and some DPN needles and finally mastered “turning a heel” with the help of this excellent book. ” Sock Yarn. One-Skein Wonders” Edited by Judith Durant from the library.I was inspired to try knitting socks again by Ginny’s post  a few weeks ago and I apologise for my post looking a bit “copy cat”but as Charles Caleb Colton made famous “imitation is the greatest form of flattery” and I am so pleased to have finally mastered heel turning. I am not satisfied though as is the human condition, I now desperately want to master the art of picking up short row loops without leaving a gap. Seriously! 🙂

  1. I don’t knit but I enjoy your blog and remember to come visit when I see your comments at our mutual friends blog. I recently finished a HUGE queen sized quilt covered in pieced autumn leavees. So glad that is done!
