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!
You are ready for the final four!
I am so impressed with you!!! You are one VERY talented lady!
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.
