Episode 4 was fun to watch, too!
I'm baffled, though, as to why you can't just knit another inch ribbing. I would. I really would no matter what anyone said. I might be a bad sock knitter. O.O
Have a great week!

Dorothy, I keep forgetting that you knit socks top-down. *smacks head*
That's another reason to knit them toe-up, for me anyway. Another reason is no grafting at the toe. I'm sold on toe-up!

I love the Spring Forward socks pattern. The pair I knit ended up too small for me...so I gifted them to a friend with smaller feet. I'm queueing the Hermione's socks. I love how your socks are turning out.

I love how your afterthought heel turned out with the self striping yarn. I'm thinking about frogging my toe up Vesper socks now.

My goal this year was to knit Yarn Miracle's mitten advent calendar....so far I'm only 2 mittens in. And I want to knit an American Girl cardigan for my soon to be 8 year old's doll. I've got 6 weeks to finish that one. I need to get started.

I did the homemade detergent for awhile...and noticed my whites were turning gray. I'm curious if your recipe is the same as mine. I've always wondered if there was something in our water...or if it was the soaps?
