Portable knitting


As I plug away at the lacey lattice cardigan, I still need to have something portable to work on. I saw this BRIGHT yarn and had to have it. It's Lorna's Laces Shepherd sport, color 630 Bittersweet. My 6 y.o. daughter fell in love with the pink, purple and tangerine color combo. Actually, I also fell in love with the color combo. I was thinking how it would brighten up my humdrum-mommy jeans and clogs. So, I merrily cast on 56 stitches, the normal number if I'm working top down socks in sport weight yarn. I thought I would do a feather and fan design on the leg, a'la Wendy. So far, so good, very cute. Guess what? The leg is waaaay to small for me. Lucky 6 y.o. girl will get socks after all!!! That'll teach me to be so selfish....

Did you buy 2 sks? Because if you did, I bet you can do a pair for you both- maybe a smaller pair for you, but a pair nonetheless. I made socks for a friend and used just barely any of ball 2- got all the way through the second foot (doing it toe up) before I had to change to the second ball. So there may be hope for your tootsies yet!
