i started a mindless sock recently to keep my head from exploding.
i finished (and started) a doily.
here's the sock …
i don't remember when i bought the yarn. it's a regia sock yarn though.
on the label says, "made in italy"! i liked it when i bought it. then, i didn't care for it that much. when i cast it on, i did out of desperation to have a sock on the needles … with mindless knitting.
i picked this self-striping yarn because i figured worst case scenario, if i didn't like it, i could over dye it.
but, i really like it! … the colors and how wide the stripes are. it's a keeper.
i'm on the toe now … and will cast on #2 after finishing this one.
next, a finished doily …
looking at this picture, and photos of the other finished ones on ravelry, i perhaps should had blocked this to be more of a hexagon.
now, it doesn't matter. the last round was a _____ (insert expletive).
i do love crochet, but the instructions are so much different compared to knitting.
in crochet, each row/round is written as a run-on sentence. so, when i'm looking at the instructions, and then work on my thread/yarn … i've completely lost my space in the instructions.
so, today, i got a helper.
post-it notes "flags" !
these little guys will help me follow my patterns. i've had some before, and they are worth the money.
i started another doily …
this one is in white thread. my 1st in white thread. this will be my last one for the next month i think … due to vacation and other projects.
i want to finish this one by the 4th --- as a holiday decoration --- with my other blue and red ones.
