I am hoping that this blog will help you and me experience the craft of crochet as well as knitting. During times of silence or turmoil, crochet and knitting continuously help me quiet my mind at my own pace, enabling me to find my center. I have patterns for sale in PDF Format, you can find them at their own Pages at the top menu. The posts are classified By labels which are at the far right, all the way down. We are the Borg! I think it will bring Order into Chaos!

First Noro Sock Pair

My first pair of Noro Socks and it will not be my last. I have to learn more about making socks and about blocking them. The Wool feels very nice on my feet and I will tell you that I was able to fuse part of the yarn to have a no weaving at one area. It worked, Noro may be fused with a bit of work on the hands. My next Noro Project may be two socks on two circulars and I don't know if I want to make them with short row heels or not. I figure you can do the Heels until you need to turn a point and then put one of the socks on double points or on another pair of two circulars and work both heels the same way. I will make some like that just to see how they are made.
I am going to put this through the washer in cold water. To tell you the truth I went ahead and put them in the dryer for 7 minutes just to give them a shock, it went fine. I am working on creating or modifying short row heels in stockinette. I just don't like the look of garter stitch short rows on the heel of a sock. Maybe when I make one pair like that I will be able to appreciate the heel. Thanks for stopping by!

I guess I will never suffer the second sock syndrome from now on. I want to wear them lol! I am practicing short row stockinette and see what it looks like. I washed them and they feel fantastic.

I love noro because of its unpredictability!!!!
