Some time between now and the last blog post, I have finally finished my socks!
Yay for me! While I'm really proud of finishing something that I can actually wear that's not scratchy (like my first scarf), I think I can do better on my next pair, like maybe making it a bit more snug. Now I know why a lot of people are addicted to knitting socks. I'm also extra happy to know that the yarn I got for my sock projects (super wash merino) did very well in the washing machine and dryer along with other clothes and that the dye/color did not run (unlike the Lily brand yarns). I know in an earlier blog I mentioned about practicing on my cabling skills but sad to say, I got sidetracked by my obsession on circular needle cases and while I do have a temporary case (a 6-inch plastic file case) which works fine for now.
CyberSeams, I was able to do it and I've been practicing my left handed knitting skills. I'm sure it will come in handy for when I finally teach my left handed friend at work how to knit.
Also, I have been practicing on my watercolor painting skills. I was really happy to be picking up my paints and brushes again after close to two years of watercolor hiatus.
