There is some knitting

It's been a busy week, here.  Mommy is preparing for her trip overseas and is busy doing some shopping for special requests for her mom and grandma. This means there is a little more babysitting for me, but I am glad to do it.  My quiet time will come when my kiddies are off visiting their other grandma.

There is knitting, but precious little time for lace.

Sock knitting works so there is lots of sock work.  These are a combination of a dark grey Kroy and a single ball of a Kroy which was very similar to my favourite pair of socks ever.

I am doing something similar with these and am slipping the dark colour in as the colour changes.  It means I can get a pair of socks out of a single ball of something I like and can make it far more dramatic with the addition of a dark for the toes, heels, cuffs and accents.

I don't remember if I did this striking red, tan and black pair before my monster sock binge of a couple of years ago or not, but I do know that I really enjoyed doing those. Always something to do.  The same goes here.  There is always something to do, something to watch for.  maybe one say soon, I will be doing patterned socks!

Time to get a move on for today. I hear the stirring of busy feet.  That means I have just a wee bit before the kiddies are wanting out of their room.

These people are busy playing king of the mountain (they climb the stairs in the garden) and Paw Patrol (kids show) where grandma's job is to call out the cry to go to the lookout and decide what job they have to do.  No job is too big, No pup is to small. After all.

I absolutely love these socks. I remember when you did the first pair - it was such an easy & striking way to add interest to the Kroy stripes. Do you cut the yarn at each transition, or are you carrying the unused yarn up one side of the sock as you knit?
