I looked to my right and there were three more - Angela, Ruth and Jean - with Ingrid being the only non-sock knitter in that line up.
Jean's socks deserve special mention. She knits toe-up, two-at-a-time on circular needles.
And take a look at her yarn!
Ingrid was dressed in her own hand knits from top to bottom today. This is her sock yarn skirt. A gored skirt where the gores were each knit separately then crocheted together. That one-at-a-time method allowed her to knit the skirt as travel knitting. I like the way the crocheted columns break up the bands of pattern. They add great interest to the finished look and prevent the skirt from becoming a perfectly, horizontally striped piece.
Today, Ingrid wore the skirt with another hand knit, a colour- coordinating grey vest. You look lovely, Ingrid.
For the first time since I can't remember when, there was enough sun and warmth today to sit outside for a mid - morning coffee. A sunny morning followed by an afternoon of knitting - pretty perfect day, don't you think?
we all love to feel the sun on our faces :)
It is bitter cold here with a nasty biting wind out of the east today. Will it ever end?
Yay for a change in the seasons! Unfortunately we are having gray=outs as Arizona dirt blows by... nasty winds. But I'm glad you got to sit outside, and wow to the knitted skirt! You go, Ingrid!
This past winter I learned to knit 2 at a time toe up and will never go back :)
