T’s been home for the last three days. The dig went well and he had good weather. The flight home was very long. We’ve had a great visit. It never matters how long he’s here, it’s never long enough for mom 🙂
I had promised to make a lens sock for his new lens and started it soon after he left. I went as far as I could and then had to wait until he returned to check the size. It was a good thing I didn’t finish since it turned out to be way too small. So a quick frog and a restart … and voila!
This is a really nice pattern and a free download from Ravelry. Microfiber makes a soft, lint free fabric. The sock is knitted with two strands. I knit the first three rounds, added an eyelet round for a drawstring and then started the 1×1 rib. The ribbing made for a good cushion. The lining was knit a bit shorter with only one strand and sewn into the sock under the eyelet row. Braided jewelry cord was used for the drawstring.
There’s another dishcloth on the needles. I have to catch-up on blog reading that I’ve missed in the last three days. And then I absolutely MUST get one of the shawls finished. Busy week ahead 🙂
Thanks for visiting today!
