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!

A Fair Isle Socks is just not a sock

This Sock is an interesting example of something that shapes and reshapes itself as you wear it.  My friend Nigel suggested that I turn it inside out and do it in reverse, this would definitely make the floats better. I try the socks on every two or three rows, nothing like a pair of socks that does not go over the ankles.  I am planning to do a double strand on the heel and on the toe.  I have not decided whether it will be black or red.  This sock is being done with Cascade Heritage superwash merino and Wollmeise. I am loving every minute I am spending.  I am definitely learning a lot about this Fair Isle in Sock Fashion.  I have another pair of Socks that I am really wanting to make, they are green and black, Lizard Socks, but that is another story.  I am glad you stop by today to see the progress I made.  I had one of my patterns proofread by a friend and it's a go.  I will start to work on the Other New Pattern maybe Sunday or so.  Thanks for stopping by.
