Welcome to the newest outlet for all that is me. I have combined the Knitwith.us website and the Nautical Knitter blog into this little corner of the internet that I call Deborah Fillmer dot com. If you are new here and want to know more about my past, check out the Me page. For updates on what I am currently doing or looking forward to, hang out here for a while. Please feel free to leave comments on the posts and get involved in my adventures.
What better way to start a new blog than with a finished object? These socks were started at the beginning of the 2008-2009 college basketball season. They were a great “grab and go” project for taking to the games and the cable pattern was quite simple to memorize. This was the first time I had ever done a cable pattern and the pattern was written well enough for a beginner to understand.
I am a notoriously slow and methodical knitter, so finished objects for me are something to be celebrated! Therefore, I present to you my completed Updraft Socks.
Pattern: Updraft Socks – Air Collection
Modifications: Eliminated the cable pattern on the foot
Yarn: Knitpicks Essential – Ash
Needles: US 0
both look great 🙂
It’s looking good! Go, you!!
Very nice socks – well done!
I found you! The socks look great…enjoyed knitting with you tonight.
They look great. Yet another sock pattern to add to my ever increasing queue. Those are cool sock blockers too. Where did you get them?
Thanks! The sock blockers were made by my step-father several years ago…I love them!!
