Quick Houdini Update

I've just finished picking up stitches and opening up the footprint. Before I go down to the garden I wanted to show these really quick.

Now a little weaving!

I didn't post anything on weaving yet. I got some cotton yarn last week and am experimenting in weaving dishcloths. So far this is what I have. I'll weave one in plain weave and then wash them and see how they look!

Houdini Update

Houdini footprints done! Now for the scary part. I will pick up stitches on each footprint and then cut my knitting open to knit upwards for the leg. Wish me luck!

So I'm mad at my Soay Cardi... I got close to finishing the 2nd sleeve and find they are different lengths! Ugh! Don't know if I'm going to rip them out and start over or try to adjust the second sleeve. I'm punishing it by putting it in time out. So.... Just having the socks to work on isn't enough and I started dishcloths yesterday. DD asked for some and I saw this pink and white cotton yarn in sale. Cute pattern huh? It's called Raindrop by Lily Sugar and Cream website.

Houdini Socks Update

Starting the decreases for the toe/heel in the footprint for the Houdini Socks. Once I close the end up I'll take step by step pics of the process to pick up stitches and open the footprint to knit the leg.
