I haven't posted about my knitting for a while, largely because I hadn't finished anything in a long time. After running out of yarn on two large projects, I started work on a pair of knee socks with random stripes generated by die rolls.
Finally, I finished the socks at the beginning of November.
I knit the socks from the toe up and used a four-sided die to select the color and a twelve-sided die to select the number of rows.
Next, I needed some fast projects. I was tired of not finishing things, and I was way behind on my goal of at least twelve finished objects for the year, so I started knitting dishcloths. It was fortunate timing, because this was a difficult few weeks, and a bit of mind-less knitting was in order.
When I had used up the last of my cotton left-overs, I started another pair of socks. I finished this pair on Tuesday, then on Wednesday morning I went for the first time to the yarn store in Wyandotte, Riverside Yarn Gallery, where I purchased more yarn to complete my scandinavian stranded colorwork cardigan. If I can complete it before the end of December, which I think I will, it will make the twelfth completed project for the year.
