Change of Mind

I changed the Bake Sale Sock. Just enough to make it more interesting.

Try this if you want a closer look.

It’s still pretty easy. Even though it has twice as many rounds to complete, it is not at all difficult to memorize/predict/read.

Every now and then as I type this, a certain baby comes over and kisses me on the arm. It is even sweeter since she has learned to work the squirt bottle and is soaking wet.

This year’s mug is made by Pat Parker.

I’ve been working on the sock for the Bake Sale. The pattern is reminiscent of the dish cloth on the Peaches & Creme ball band.

The stitch pattern I ended up using is mediocre as far as Difficulty is concerned, making this a great sock project for social knitting. It’s also gender neutral and quite stretchy so it will suit many types of feet. The slipped stitch pattern makes good use of variegated yarns, but it is also interesting enough to stand out when made in a solid or semi solid colorway. In short, Bake Sale is shaping up to be an excellent all-purpose, go-to pattern. Yay!

Also, did you see my lion?
