Peaknit is Two!

Wow, the time truly does fly when you are having fun. I almost missed it, but my blog turns 2 today! I will have to start thinking up a contest...hmmm.

I finished my Loksins yesterday. I extended the coin lace cable down the heel - I think I am in love. I actually put the heel on "backwards" - there is a stockinette runway up and down both the front and the back - one is 6 stitches, one is 8 - I put the heel on the first one wrong and didn't realize (of course) until I completely turned the heel on the second one - so I did rip back the whole heel but I'm leaving them backwards, the 8 stitch runway is adorning the front rather than the back - who will know? Well, except all of blogland now:)

Loksins in Mama Blue Sea Merino - little wing

I cast on a pair of Child's First Sock in Shell Pattern using another skein of the Sea Merino, I can't wait to share - it is coming up fabulous!

Tonight I have a date with some Dream in Color Classy - we are going a-swatching as I cast on my Tour De France KAL project.

While I am crossing my arms and still harumpf-ing at my problem knit project, it feels good to cast on something fresh - but I am not going to stay mad for much longer - I need to win.

Oh my, those socks are just lovely! Great colors!
I'm all about starting something fresh for new perspective. I'm sure you'll win with the other project. Hang in there.
And Happy Blogiversary to You! I always enjoy your blog and your knitting - so talented! :)

They are beautiful! Why is it I never think to improvise when it comes to socks? I will on any other garment, but I struggle with socks so much that I just follow the pattern in hopes that they will resemble something wearable. I love the colors you've been using. Looking foward to the Child's First Sock. I love that pattern.
