Pat's Knitting and Quilting
October 15, 2008
My friend Linda - a talented, creative and fearless knitter - designed these beautiful socks! I love everything about them. The pattern is easy and fun - also quick - 5 repeats of the chart and you're DONE! They are knit toe up and end with a new-to-me (since I rarely knit toe up socks) tubular bind off - the perfect stretchiness with a very clean look. There is a nice smooth transition between the undulating leg pattern and the cuff ribbing - so pretty and a perfect fit!

Clue 2 of Through the Loops Mystery Sock complete! I've just printed off Clue 3 which looks like it's going to be a beautiful eye of the partridge heel.
Still have 2 more pairs of socks going - and predictably... I'm now being strongly drawn to hats/mittens/sweaters - A good impetus to finish all of these socks up!
As for quilting....I continue to make 4" stars for the Mother Goose quilt - not too many more - soon I'll be putting the top together.
