Love Your Library - Week 1

http://snapdragoncrafts.blogspot.com/2015/01/love-your-library-vol-1.html

Book:  The Knitter's Book of Socks: Patterns: * Stepping Stones * Darjeeling * Hickory * Elm * Salted Caramels * Firefly * Rocaille * Buddleia * Veil of Rosebuds * Isabella d'Este * Tutu *
Lady Tryamour * Kensington * Hummingbird * Prana * Strago * Cape Spear * Percheron *
Turbo Toes * Annapurna

The first pattern, Stepping Stones, is by the author Clara Parkes and is a pretty straightforward pattern...I am almost done with leg one.  The heel flap looks like it'll be interesting, as we work with two different yarns (or pulling from the same ball at both ends)  Supposedly it'll make the heel nice and thick....so I should get to that today...not sure if I'm going to use a contrasting yarn or not yet...






I was not able to knit much the past two days, but today is my last day of vacation, although I have to do some lesson planning..I should be able to get the rest of the leg and the heel done...

Come join us at Snapdragon Crafts.....

My saving grace this week is 6 sporting events where my butt will be parked on a bleacher! Got the cast on done last night and a good amount knit on the shawl.

I like the color of your yarn. That book isn't in my library, but I've heard good things about it.

I love the names of those socks and I was just looking at that book last night as I got the KnitPicks catalog in the mail. FYI - They're having their book sale at 40% off.
Love the color and look how much you have done already! You Go Girl!
