It's About Time

I've been back in Canada for a week now but getting over jet lag has been harder than in previous years. I think the older you get the harder it is.

Anyway, I do have some stuff to post. I did a lot of knitting in Greece since a; my husband was otherwise occupied and b; the weather wasn't the greatest. I knit five pairs of socks. I only have photos of four since one pair I gave away to our wonderful neighbour Sophia (see my post on my other blog) before I got a chance to photograph them. They were nice though and I'm certain they were appreciated.

I've started another pair of socks since returning home but his pair will not show up here until they are finished. They will be very colorful since I've decided to stripe them using every leftover sock yarn I have. I hate waste...

I've also started the Noro Scarf. I'm late to this project since just about everyone in Ravelry has done this one. Better late than never I figure and it is going to be nice. I will gift this to someone special since it's pretty pricey. The yarn alone was over forty bucks.

I'm impressed you knit up so many socks! For G's, I measured the circumference of her foot (6") and did a swatch (how many stitches on a 2.75mm needle over one inch) and multiplied that by her foot circumference.... I think it turned out to be 42. I did a 1X1 rib for an inch and a half, then switched to straight stockinette. The length of her foot was also just over six inches. E has a foot size one size bigger than G - an 8 I believe (children's shoe size). Hopefully that helps? I also weighed G's finished sock and it was around 35g.

Carmen thank you, that is most helpful. I have enough leftover sock yarn to make a couple of pair for Ellie...

It's about time! I was beginning to think you didn't get much knitting done. How wrong could I be? Wow! That is a lot of socks!

Hi Brenda, hope your feeling better. I have still been blogging just not the knitting blog. I've been at where I can usually be found when I'm traveling.
