As promised, part two--Sandia Crest sock pattern
I'm a glutton for punishment--if it will drive me crazy, make me look idiotic, or give me a stomach ache, I want to do it over and over again, until I get it right. It's been about three months since I started this blog, and I've enjoyed it immensely, stomach aches and all. As a thank-you for reading, here's the pattern for Sandia Crest. Just click on the link in the sidebar or go directly to the pattern by clicking here. If you like my patterns, follow my blog and you'll always know when I offer a new one. Thanks!
The list of blogs I follow is fairly long--about 80 at this point. Some are humorous, many are instructional, and a few are always inspirational. Getting Purly With It, comes to mind. Nancy, from San Francisco, is on a mission to share her love of knitting with the world and has generously offered many of her patterns for free. Thanks, Nancy. You make me want to push the envelope.
There's another fiber blog that has touched me deeply, and not just with its beautiful knitting. Kate Davies, of Edinburgh, Scotland, is a talented young knitter and writer, and she recently suffered a stroke. If you haven't visited needled, I urge you to. Her knitting is amazing and her writing shines with a beautiful spirit.
That's the great thing about the web--we can share our gifts with people all over the world, right from our keyboards, without ever leaving home, or even getting dressed! What could be better? I just wish they'd stop giving me funny looks at the grocery store. Have a fabulous week everybody.
