Rocking Circle P

Rocking Circle P is my small farm in Northeastern rural Utah. We're a small fruit, nut and fiber farm.

I'm going to get this down, even if it makes me totally crazy. I love socks and making socks. So here is my newest effort at some socks. This is an EFG (extra fine guage) or FG (fine guage) loom from Decor Accents, can't remember which. They make the best looms. This particular yarn is my own handspun. I've got to get some little rubberbands to mark the K2P2 so I don't have to count all the time. It's coming along nicely, but you can't tell what size it is going to fit. Purling around the corners is a bit of a challenge, but I'm developing a technique. I found some nice patterns for a remake of Ron's socks. I'll be starting those again very soon. Oh, I also bought some yarn and pattern from Knit Picks to make a really cool aran sweater for someone special. sssshhhhhh......don't tell.

Socks Make Good Dusting Rags....Don't They!
Well, the sock passed all the tests for the superwash. That bad boy sock didn't even shrink a teensy bit. Pilled a little.....that's all. So I now have a sock that would fit a size 14 foot or larger. Anyone know anybody who needs just one big sock? Well, if nothing else, I decided it would make a great dusting rag. I'm off to search for patterns for mens socks.
Happy Sunday everyone.

Ok, so what if I made a sock for Big Foot. I'm going to wash it and see what happens. The yarn is suppose to be superwash, so we'll see what we get when attacked by the local washing machine, warm water and the dryer. Are there any sock police out there? I think it is a good thing that I have several skeins of this yarn. I might be able to make a pair that will fit him yet.

Where did August go?

I've been a busy girl and enjoying life and the pursuit of happiness. It's been 20 years since I have had so much fun with a fella and we have been having a blast. Nice to have a little male companionship. But, I have been neglecting my blog. I haven't accomplished much over the last month, been too busy having fun, but I did get this fiber spun and finished one of Ron's socks. Just one...I know.....I'm worried!.....and it turned out huge. Maybe I see my son's foot as larger than it really is. I'll post a picture in a while.
