I barely finish the old project when I have a new one lined up. I get emails from various knitting groups and this one caught my eye to try from the Knitting Brewing Co.
Mystery Sock II Knit-along.
The idea is you get a new clue to part of the pattern every week or so. You need to sign up to Ravelry and join their group.
So I ordered the Mint Julep as my main color and the Last Call as my contrast color. Imagine my surprise that when the yarn and first clue arrived, I discovered it was written for the Magic Loop style of knitting socks.
Thank goodness for You Tube. Yesterday I spent the afternoon with the laptop and my knitting, trying to figure out how to do it. I frogged 2 times and I think 3rd time's the charm. I seem to have the hang of it.
The pattern involves Mosaic knitting which I have done in the past, so hopefully it won't be too much of a challenge.
Size 1 needles and fine yarn - it's time for new glasses.
