It’s just a week of frogging here! As I was knitting my Fall Socks today, I was really thinking they were kind of small. I tried them on and sure enough, they are just too tight. I should have kept with the 64 stitches I started with and not gone down to 58. I had already turned the heel and it seems as though I did that just slightly too soon as well. Only one thing could be done – it had to be frogged. Did I mention that this is the 3rd time this yarn has been frogged? Yup. It’s my cursed sock yarn. I’m determined, though, because I LOVE the colors, so I will try again, this time with 64 stitches.
When I got home today, there was a package waiting for me! I was really excited about it. Earlier in the week, P-la said she was going to send me this really nifty organizer for my knitting things as she had an extra one and I had mentioned on my blog that I liked it and had been looking for something similar and not finding anything. I was surprised by the size of the box since I had expected something small, but I eagerly opened it to find this:
She sent me the really cool organizer along with a skein of Twisted Fiber Art, DK/Sport Weigh in the colorway Mayhem. I have really been into oranges lately and I love the oranges, yellows and greyish purpleish colors of it! I love these colors and I’m already thinking of what to make with it. When I opened the organizer, I found a tape measure and some stitch markers.
I sure was spoiled! I had actually been feeling kinda bad about recent swaps (and not having received anything at all yet) and this really made my day. Thank you so much P-la!!
Here’s my kit all filled up and organized:
I just love it!
