Countdown: 40% into the Olympics~a little bit of tinking ahead!

The Olympics are 40% over…so far so good…I have gotten past the gusset decreases and am 2 pattern repeats past the gusset decreases and notice a mistake so I have to tink back a row or two.  That’s ok, I’m glad I tore back and picked up the gusset again.  I am just getting a little impatient because I really want to start working on hubby’s socks now.  Soon enough.  He’s just so patient and I selfishly dropped his socks to start the Olympic challenge.

oh well…..

I didn’t have much time to knit today, but I did manage to get the heel turned on my sock and started the gusset…only to discover that I picked up one of the sides funny so in the true Olympic spirit, I am going to tear it back tomorrow and do it right. If it wasn’t for the Olympics, I am sure I would have chosen to ignore it this time. I know I’m going to love these socks, though, so I know I will be happy that I decided to do it right….at some point.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Didn’t get a lot of time to knit today, but I did get almost all of the way through the heel flap. 

It was a great Valentine’s Day for more reasons than one…God is so encouraging when we need it!

Here is my first new lace sock….and the second one in progress. I am loving knitting these and I think that I may try knitting some more plain colored socks and practice knitting different patterns for awhile. I am so excited that I tried something new for the knitting olympics!

The Knitting Olympics!

I have joined the Knitting Olympics! I decided to knit the Simply Lovely Lace Socks from the newest edition of Interweave magazine. I cast on my socks at 2 pm….and 3 false starts later, was off and running in true Olympic spirit by about 7 pm! I am so surprised that I have completed my first sock…and 4 false starts later, am 3 pattern repeats into the second sock! It is so exciting to be part of something big like this. Since I am making good progress on my socks, I will try to get hubby’s socks that I had started earlier in the week done also. Pictures to come soon!
