My First Knit Along!

Name: Crafted in Millthorpe
20th October 2007


1. To complete or frog 4 partially completed UFO socks.

2. To put myself on a sock yarn diet. Current stash estimate, enough to complete 14 pair without using frogged yarn from UFO’s.

3. To learn Toe Up Gusset Method by knitting Widdershins from

4. To limit self to 2 sock WIP’s at any time. One mindless stash buster and one more challenging with a new technique or complex pattern.

5. To develop a regular blogging habit. My blog is here.

6. To have fun knitting socks this summer.

Current WIP’s:
Illusion toe up socks from yarn dyed myself with another solid cream for contrast. Started before joining SSoS. See photo above.

Toe up baby socks in Bambino Merino mauve multi for my niece born this month. Cast on after joining SSoS.

Do Christmas Stockings count as socks? I have plenty of red and green 4 ply intended for stockings for my parents this Christmas (maybe).

Hey, welcome! I just started the Widdershins. LOVE the cast on. SO MUCH BETTER than the On Your Toes cast on. It's so tidy!

Millthorpe! I'm in Blayney. I was starting to think there were no other knit-bloggers in the Central West!

Hi Kate,

I wondered where you were after reading your posts about the botanical gardens, yesterday.

I work in Blayney and I too was wondering if this was a technological black hole. LOL

Kate (Kiss My Frog) said...

Oh, the technology is here, just not in conjunction with the knitters!

Rose Red said...

welcome! If it makes you feel any better, I've got enough sock yarn for at least 40 pairs (I've actually lost count...)

Michelle said...

Welcome! That's a nice load of sock yarn you have there!

I'm making a couple of Christmas stockings. I figured every two is a pair. However, the needle size is bigger, so I may count every pair as a baby pair.
