A Quick Knit


That's what this pair was... Monica's Hearts-A-Plenty. I started them on 9/12/07 and finished them tonight (9/17/07). Knit in Paton's Kroy-Fancy Free. Hopefully you'll be able to knit these yourself (look for Monica's patterns at The Loopy Ewe in the very near future...shameless plug!). Now I need to start another of her patterns (she is so very talented!).

Christy asked about my sock blockers...yes I did make them myself from wire hangers. There are instructions here. Have fun making them!!

I love your socks. I am also interested in your very nice sock blockers. Did you make them? Hubby wants to make some for me. Did you follow a pattern for the way to bend the wire?

Thanks for any help.

The hubby made me some sock blockers similar to yours in under 3 minutes. ;0) Thank you for the instructions.

Awesome job on the socks, Karen! I really love the color of the Kroy yarn...never saw that back home or I'd have made sure to get myself some. Unfortunately, I haven't found any sock yarn over here in Korea yet, so I'll have to order some and hope the shipping isn't atrocious!
