Seventh Year of Projects - Week 39

And another week has come and gone! 

I spent the majority of my spare time this past week working on only my Sock Madness Round 1 socks and I managed to get them all finished up late this afternoon - which explains why I delayed posting this blog until now...

What I learned knitting this pattern - I am not a big fan of duplicate stitching...  The end result looks nice, but it was so slow to do and I also have a boat load of tails to tuck in (I need to get onto to those soon or I will never finish them...)

Here is the finished project:

Now I need to wait for about a week until the next pattern comes out.  I think I may work on some crochet pet snuggles to donate to the Humane Society.  I want to use up my old acrylic stash and this is a quick and easy way to do so.  I'll post some pictures of what I do with them (assuming I do work on them) next week.  And I plan to get some more work done on my Rowe Cardigan.

Until next week!!


  1. Great socks......sorry about all those ends. My least favorite part too.

  2. The socks are cute but no, duplicate stitching is no fun! Nor is weaving in ends!

    I had to follow the link to find out what "pet snuggles" are. Looks like a great way to use up acrylic stash!

  3. Those socks are wonderful. I'm afraid I don't know what duplicate stitching is, but if it makes lots of ends I appreciate that you may not be a fan of it. I create lots of ends in some of my crochet project, but I can't imagine dealing with them in thin sock yarn. I have to say, though... the cuteness factor of those socks is surely worth it. I love them!!!

  4. Those socks are so darling and you did such a beautiful job. I love the colors you chose too. The pet snuggles sound like a great contribution to the poor homeless animals that abound. Have a great week!

  5. The socks are fabulous and I hope worth all the ends! I don't like duplicate stitching either!
