Dietrich is east of Shoshone, Idaho. Shoshone is between Jerome and Hailey. Dietrich is on Highway 24 between Shoshone and Paul. I don't check this site very often as the postings aren't very frequent. I spend a lot of time on Ravelry. Love to knit and have just taken up spinning about a year ago. Both I can take with me anywhere.
Hi- I've got a question about your pattern [which I just started yesterday]. They're for my dtr and she only wants anlke socks. But I don't understand the dec before you get to the heel flap, can you explain? This is the first sock I will make with a heel flap etc. Your pattern says after the 20th row of st st to dec 2 - do you dec 1 stitch on 1st dpn and 1 st on 3rd dpn on the same round [round 21]?? I'm afraid that will make the top of her sock longer than she wants it to be to do 40 rows of the dec. But I'm just learning about patterns, too. So I hope you can help me. Thanks.
Do you have a pattern for your socks? Are they really simple. I'm going to try a sock with a heel and whatever other parts there actually are to a sock. But I must start the other half of this pair for my sister, first. Thanks
The sock I just finished is just basically a tube sock but since it's my first real sock, I'm pleased with it. The stitches are very nice except I think I knit a little loose. I'm using size 3 DPN, so maybe I should go to a 2?? You seem to be an expert so any advice is appreciated.
Is the book you mentioned really a rule book or is it a novel? I love to read also. Have you read those knitting group novels? Don't know who rights them and I haven't read them but those books are on my reading list. I have an extremely long reading list. Hopefully I can make some time for that favorite past time, too.
Geez... first I tipped my tea mug all over my jacket on my way to work, then discovered that the stupid mug LEAKS and is dribbling all down my SHIRT, as well! Good thing hubby was passing through and could bring me a clean shirt! Must throw this stupid mug OUT! (But my tea this morning is so good! I am trying to drink the rest of it with a handkerchief wrapped around the mug to catch the drips...)
I had to laugh when I read your comment about the most yarn - ha. She's been gone two years now and I cherish memories like this one. Better to laugh than cry OR just laugh so hard you cry. Both works!
