Socks and garden necessities


Today, we decided that perhaps summer will come, so went to Lowe’s and purchased enough peat moss and sand to fill our hoop house boxes back to the top.   Over the years, as I’ve taken produce and weeds out, the quantity of the boxes has diminished.


I also decided on another sock project.   Somehow my hands feel lonely without yarn in them.   Mostly, I’ve been spinning, but it is time for knitting again.    There is no particular pattern as I just knit 6, purl 2 on 64 stitches.  And since I didn’t easily find where they match, (still haven’t), I’m just making them “cousin” socks.   I’ll be wearing them, so it doesn’t really matter.

    Pretty socks! I wish the sun would come out again! I am not a rainy day gardener……

      I agree with you. We had just a tad today, but the forecast for the next 10 days is all rain. I’m so behind in my gardening, I interviewed a woman today who is willing to come and help me by pulling the weeds out of my boxes, but she needs a bit of dry weather.

  2. I have new sock yarn and really like the idea of k6, p2 rib. I think I will give it a try. I usually do k3, p1 for a rib or just knit all the rows. Gardening must be in the air! My DH cleaned out our balcony boxes this week. Cheers! Evelyn

      I did a normal k2, p2 for the ribbing at the top and then switched to k6, p2. Enjoy the knitting and send a photo when done.

    I like your “cousins socks”. Cute name for them.

      Thanks – I still haven’t found the repeat in them. I’ve never had yarn like that before and yes, the two skeins are out of he same lot.
