Socks on the Way

I've finally made time to start the fluted banister socks using navy Regia plus Cotton. I'm skipping making waves for now. It never ceases to amaze me when I make the simple mistake. They're never the big honking mistakes that you can see a mile away. Just little subtle differences that show up after closer inspection.

I started the socks late last night and only this morning did I realize that I skipped the set up row after the ribbing. Is it a major error? No. The more significant question is, "Is it a major error for me.?" That answer would definitely be yes. After much agonizing and letting go of a little bit more of my perfectionism, I've decided not to change it.

SC State Fair - 1st Place Purse & Most Perfect Specimen Knitting Posted by Hello

It's Official!!!

Wow! Didn't realize it's almost been a month since I last blogged. I've been busy knitting and finishing entries for the fair. At long last the wait is over and the results are in. I won "Most Perfect Specimen Knitting" for a modular purse. I thought the shawl would have taken that prize. In addition to winning the big prize, I also won 3 first place and 2 second place ribbons. Woo Hoo!!!

Today I'll be demoing along with several other Palmetto Purlers at the SC State Fair. This is my second year entering and doing the demo. I'll try to get some good pictures to post. Do I feel validated for all the time I spend knitting? You bet!!! Now to get all the Christmas goodies made and finish Master Knitting Level II. Tempest fugit!
