I have been wanting to make one of these for a while now... today I did. It is 12 in x 12 in not including the ribbon. I used pink satin for the back and a very soft blanket material for the front. I used my Futura for both the embroidery and the sewing.
Homework Finished. Tomorrow I learn the toe. I can tell that this sock is going to be too big. But no problems at all. I have already started the second sock. I had wanted to get as far as the heel with it before my class but, its not gonna happen. One good thing about my LYS is that I can go back anytime I have troubles and they will help... Good thing, I bet I will be needing them!
I'm working on a hat, too. Its called "snowflake" but I don't think I will embroidery the snowflakes. Its just a simple little hat that ties in a bow on the top. I'll try to have it finished this weekend.
I started my sock! I had a great time in class at my LYS... well, not really a class. I was the only student! Just means I had all the attention. I am glad I taking this class. I'm going to learn the tricks. I'm using Regia 4 ply with size 2 needles.The color is Jacquard. Can't give you more information on the yarn cuz it's in German. I am a big lady so I cast on 60 and am doing the ribbing with k2, p1. For home work I sould have 6-7 inches done my next Friday. It's fun!
The picture shows what I did in class. Not much for two hours but the needles are small and the yarn is too! There is a learning curve!
Friday Morning I take my sock class! Sounds funny if your not in the hand knitted sock world, but I am excited. I want to learn the basics so I can start to make the many beautiful socks I have seen on my "Hand Knitted Sock" group. I'll let you know how it goes :)
