Ugly Ankle Socks

I managed to knit a pair of socks with some yarn that didn’t quite turn out the way I had wanted it too. I figure that ankle socks to wear a round the house will be a perfect use for yarns that I am not totally satisfied with. I also knit a little mini sock…… Continue reading Ugly Ankle Socks

30 Week Knitting Challenge: Week 18

I wanted to participate but from past experience I knew that I would never keep up with 30 straight days of blogging. So I decided to tweak the challenge to fit my preferences.
