Today I went to Cornucopia Yarn Shop with Nick to get some non-wooly yarn for a scarf for me. While we were there, we came across Sock Wizard Software. Now, I love knitting socks and have been struggling with making my own patterns. After a discussion about if I’d really use it (YES!), Nick bought it for me! Haven’t had much of a chance to play with it, but I’ve tested the waters and so far it seems pretty nifty.
Today, I also picked up a copy of The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller. I have both of the Stitch ‘n Bitch books and like the way they are set up and the instructions, so I went ahead and got this one (finally!). I’ve attempted crochet countless times and still struggle with it. I want to learn to crochet!! I’m hoping this will give me the kick I need to finally learn and crochet some things that I’ve been really wanting.
That’s all I’ve got for now. No real knitting progress to report as I haven’t been knitting much lately. I need to get working on my Sock-ret Pal socks so they will be done in time (not that I’m too worried about it… I’m halfway down the leg of the second sock). I also have another pair of socks on the needles that are very simple and have been getting more knitting time because of that and I have another pair I want to cast on for. I think I may wait to cast on for the scarf until I’m done with the sock just to get me motivated ;o)
Happy crafting all!
