Done...... Done ....... Done...........

I finished the olympic socks, after I got done with the toe and picking up the stitches on the sides, the sock was fairly easy. I continued the lace pattern up the front and into the cuff.

I got the blanket blocked, the slippers sewn together, and the yoga socks finished up.

Now I am working on the table cloth again and the teddy bear.

This week will be a busy week getting ready for hubby's surgery.

The Olympic socks are getting bigger. I worked on the first one until I got to the heel and then started the second one, then put them on the needle together. The toe was the worst part. I don’t like short row toes or heels. I am doing square heels on  them instead of the short rows,

knitting olympics

The knitting Olympics starts this Friday. If you haven’t signed up here is the link.

I will be doing a pair of sock. I have done lots of socks before, but these are not regular sock. This is a totally different way to knit socks. Neither cuff-down nor toe-up! A fun challenge. They start with a lace square and then you do the toe, work the bottom, heal and then cuff.

I will post pictures as I go.
