TDS: Stage Three

The only difference between an experienced knitter and new knitter is that the experienced knitter makes bigger mistakes faster. Be bold; there are no terrible consequences in knitting. ~ Stephanie Pearl-McPhee

It’s the end of the month. Normally, I would post a photo of all the projects I’ve finished this month. Can you guess how many I’ve finished? That’s right, none. I’m close on a few and I started a few more. I became slammed at the day job and there may have been a week or two this month the British Hubby and I thought we would be relocating to a completely different part of the country for his job. (Don’t worry for now that’s not happening.) Life has been so chaotic, I haven’t even been keeping up with Tour de Sock (TDS). 014It’s been so long you probably need a refresher. TDS is a two month long international sock knitting competition with six stages. This year I decided to also work on sock wips during TDS. I did great for stage one and then cast on the stage two sock. Above is the progress photo of TDS 6.2.18. I’ve managed to finish the first cable repeat on sock one. There are about 540 completed pairs of this sock already. 017Stage three finished quite a few weeks ago. The pattern is bicycle race. It has cables and beads. I like this one, but I used the only bit of knitting restraint I had this month to hold off casting this one on right away. Stage three has about 330 completed pairs. Instead I pulled out my Watermelon Socks from last year. I’ve just turned the heel on sock one. I love how colorful these are. 019It’s Cheep and Cheerful Friday! It’s a rare occurrence that I have the same brand two weeks in a row. That’s how much I like this brand. 021.JPG
