Our last Summer Socks Follow Along email #6 will cover shaping the toe and using Kitchener stitch to graft the toe. It's a part of sock knitting that goes fast since there are fewer and fewer stitches. Watch for that email in your inbox.
I hope you're enjoying these emails. As always, I invite you to follow along as I knit.
We are celebrating! As a little bonus, I want to let you in on a huge joy in my life. My husband Ed and I are celebrating 55 years of marriage this week. We were married in 1968, during our college days, and and have sustained our years together through multiple homes, three wonderful children, four grandkids who are the best, and a whole lot of living.
Thinking about those years, I realize that I have been knitter for all of them since I started knitting in eighth grade. My mother was a knitter and so was my mother-in-law.
Four of my five sisters knit, too. And that errant sis -- she's a crackerjack quilter. My memories are filled with needlework. I might have even been hemming my wedding dress at the last minute on that day 55 years ago.
I'll throw some anniversary photos in at the end of this email. It's always fun to look back.
