I was casting on my sock…cast on 56 stitches, join being careful not to twist (sound familiar).  So I am ready to get started, right? *Wrn to make 1—huh?  I flip the page to check for abbreviations/stitch definitions,  none to be found.  This happened to be during my lunch hour today and I was with a fellow knitter….do you know what a wrn is, I inquired? She had never heard of this stitch either.  Very odd.  I checked KnitSpeak when I got home,  wrn stands for wool round needle, this is the British version of a YO.  Mystery solved….I can now commence with my cuff.  Happy Knitting Everyone!

Cast off

SLR_0369r I hit a bit of a milestone yesterday morning.  Lady Eleanor is cast off.  I will be weaving in the ends this week and the fringe will be added after blocking.  The color is a little off in the picture but you get the idea.

I've been itching to cast on some socks and I think I'll start on these. SLR_0371r

The Big Reveal

Slr_0361   Thank you, Debbi!  We Slr_0340 swapped our Silly Socks this afternoon. Debbi spoiled me with these lovely blue socks that fit perfectly (I need to get the specs on them), some Spunky Eclectic roving,  some of Mary's fabulous stitch markers, a yummy cookbook, handmade soap that smells good enough to eat, hot cocoa (that will be going Slr_0342r with me to work), a fantastic sock pattern, and a whooping 600 yards of yarn called Dragonfly.  And thank you Christine, Crystal and Kathy for the wonderful narration….it was almost as good as being there.  What a great idea Julie and Crystal ! The group reveal photo's are here and go over and check out Madame Purl's lovely new socks.Slr_0345  Slr_0344   Slr_0352
