The Mean Mom

Just ask my 7 year old, he'll tell you. Don't believe him? Ask my 14 year old, if she still leaves you in doubt, my 17 year old can confirm it too.

Chilly toes!

For those of you following along in the Saga of the Sock... It is no more. I had that dropped stitch, and then while checking to see whether it was time to start the toe decreases, I discovered I have big feet. Hey! Stop laughing. They have to be big, I'm tall.

Since they didn't really fit, and they were messed up, I undid all my hard work. The cat was very interested in the pile of yarn that was growing on the bed beside me. I re-balled the yarn, and cast on again.

Hopefully this one will be better.

Maybe I'll have learned to count...

We'll see...

Once I get a sock to turn out, I'm moving on to sweaters. I also saw a really pretty doily. You remember doilies don't you?

Maybe I should stick to scarves... what do you think?

    I think your socks will be great! And your feet aren't big at all :)

    I have never done a sock so I can't really comment on them. They strike me as like mittens, they somehow intimidate me! How many scarves have you done? How about a shawl? Those are a nice step up from a scarf. Or better yet a felted bag! Those, now those are great! I did one as my first non scarf project. It was the Oregon Tote and I get more compliments on it! I am actually making another right now for my MIL for Christmas. Sweaters are great too, just time consuming. A bag can get you some more immediate results!

    Aww, poor sock! I can't tell you how many times I re-started my first pair ;) Keep trying, you just need a basic sock calculation pattern. Give me your gauge in stitches per inch, give me your foot length and circumference around the ball of your foot and I can give you a nice easy pattern!
