In my past post (3 down) I was asked about the miniature socks I was making.
Pattern is a combination of one that comes with the Sock Blocker Key Chain http://www.thebellwether.biz/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=19_34&products_id=57 with a short row heel added.
Cast on 16 stitches in round
Work 5/6 or your choice rows of ribbing
Change to stockinette and work leg to desired length
Work 1/2 stitches (8) for short-row-heel
Continue in round until foot desired length
Decrease for toe
Basic pattern. If you require more info -- let me know.
I was also talking about making a Yarn Themed Christmas Tree next year. If you are a Rockin Socker, we received those tiny little yarn skeins "emergency" yarn. Wouldn't they be cute also on a tree as an ornament? So, for next Christmas I plan on gathering my little skeins, knitting miniature socks and hopefully miniature sweaters.
(I apologize to whomever I got the miniature sweater idea from. I tried to trace back and find your post so I could link to you but I couldn't find it. Please accept my apologies and if you let me know whose blog I saw the miniature sweaters in, I will link. Thank you)
By-the-by if someone could instruct me on how to hide an address when I link, that would be appreciated.
Oh, and is there any sheep/fiber festival in the Michigan/Ohio area that anyone knows of coming up?
On the Thankful Side...... the sun is shining, and January is almost over. Spring is only 2 months away!!
