Knitting on toothpicks


As long as there is snow, I’m going to keep photographing my WIPS in it  for you. I think snow takes on the color around it.  Doesn’t the snow look blue to you?

As you can see I’ve ribbed the entire cuff.  While sometimes knitting socks on tiny needles feels like I’m knitting tooth floss with toothpicks, this time it just feels light and dreamy.

I forced myself to go on a hike with Fireman yesterday. Snowscapes in nature are gorgeous to me.  I got to HEAR the water moving and bubbling.  Was it cold. …. OH baby it was cold.

Let the Olympics begin!  I’m ready.  I’m going to see how many socks I can knit during these games.

  1. LOL -my #2 sock needles feel like toothpicks after knitting Sigla (10.5 needles which feel like tree trunks).

    Your sock is beautiful – love, love, love the blue. I am itching to get out hiking somewhere – lovely snowy picture.


  2. If I don’t have to shovel it or drive in it, I love snow! Thankfully, I haven’t had to do much of either this winter.

    ❤️ the blue yarn, and the ribbed cuff. Ribbed cuffs fit me the best.


  3. Great photo, Kathy! You were brave to go out in that frigid cold. Jill said Chicago had subzero temps, and I’ll bet WI did also. Love your blue socks! I have way too many in the works as usual. Enjoy your day, and stay WARM!


  4. Such a pretty creek photo, although it DOES look really cold! I think you’re right about the snow looking blue. It definitely looks blue to me. I have ripped out Dennis’ socks twice now and have settled on the number of stitches I want and am almost ready to turn the heel. I only work on it away from home right now though since all of my brainpower is going to Piper’s sweater right now.
    I hope you’re having a lovely afternoon.


  5. Those are great pics!!! Yes the snow does look blue! However I think it really makes the color of the yarn stand out that much more. and oh goodness that is a gorgeous pic of the creek!!


  6. Pat’s XC coach used to say “ there is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothes.” PAT’s father used to say “ winter has no fashion”. My mom used to say “ the weather is not important unless you are having a picnic.” LOL


  7. You are funny.. I actually thought you were knitting on actual toothpicks! The socks are gorgeous and I like the ribbed top. The creek is fabulous! ((hugs)), Teresa 🙂


  8. Pretty sock!!!

    I was enthralled by some water running under ice on the street today. It bubbled along under the thin ice. I was sad when we got a green light and Steve had to drive on.
