A crafting blog. Nice. How um…. unoriginal and boring. Too bad! I am creating it as a way to track my progress as I learn new skills and hone some old ones. A nice side effect would be the pressure to get more done faster since the world would know that I am procrastinating.
Right now, I am spending most of my free time working on finishing a pair of black socks for my dearest. As this is my first time making socks, they are pretty basic. However, I ignored all of the warnings about doing two socks at once on one circular needle using the magic loop method. Many cautioned against using it on your first pair of socks. Some even rated it as an intermediate project. I disagree. I can’t knit worth a poo, and I am almost done. Hooray! Its so easy and fun. I wouldn’t recommend any other way. Um… then again I haven’t tried any other way.
