One foot in front of the other ...
I finished my Bird of Paradise socks from the Sundara Yarns Petals Collection. It has a slip-stitch rib all the way from cuff to toe. I love them a lot, but boy do they look different from Two Sharp Sticks! Hers are lovely and I love it even when stripping yarn pools, but the pools are wild on hers and only slight on mine (if at all). Really gives them a different look and color don't you think? I wonder why? Do you think it's the needles I used or the way the yarn was dyed? My gauge is different and I knit a different size maybe? It's a mystery to me that they could be SO different!!
This is how my skein started out, Eyeknit! Is it the same as yours started out in life?
I'm still just so amazed that the two pair could be so different from each other using the very same pattern. And I can see by your close ups that we did them the same.
A knitting mystery! Only the knitting gods know the answer.
Look who I went to see this weekend ...
It was her first birthday party! And here are some more of my favorite Munchikins ...
Or rather, the Girls!
And just days before, Jayden finally started to walk.
One foot in front of the other ... Go girl go!
And the contest is still on for "Name My Teacozy" ...
I'll pick out the best 10 by Thursday afternoon and have the judges pick from those on Friday.
