Week Twelve – The Madness Continues

Last week I mentioned the Sock Madness 5 knitting competition that I qualified for.  I neglected to show the completed socks from round one.  In week ten I showed the progress of these socks.  The pattern is Supporter’s Socks and the pattern is very simple, but the result is very nice.  

We received the pattern for round 2 of Sock Madness on Tuesday afternoon (22nd) and I finished 15th out of 45 in my team.  A pair of socks knitted in 5 days, not bad.  Only 37 move on to round 3 and I made it that far.  Yay!  The sock pattern for round 2 is called Nornir and below are mine, complete with my new clear clogs to show them off!  Whoo Hoo!  The pattern has a boat load of slipped stitches and I doubt I will ever make them again, but the final result was nice, albeit a little snug.  The clogs came from Knitter’s Dream.

Now I am back to waiting for the pattern for round 3…only 25 will move on through that round.  Wish me luck!

  1. Hi, thanks for visiting. Blogger listed you in my SPAM folder, so I tracked down your blog.
    I was very glad to have you visit and was intrigued by YOUR mention of fistula. Then I began reading about your biopsies and such…
    Having had 2 different cancers 3 times, my heart went out to you immediately.

    I’m on FB as Beverly June; you may friend me if you wish. There are tatters groups on FB, too.
    Best wishes for happy knitting and knotting
