My knit group planned an extra outing this week at Tom's Farms.
It's a nice little place with shops selling produce, candies, jams, fresh baked breads, etc. along with a couple different restaurants, a pond, attractions for kids and more. We sat in a shady spot by the pond and the weather was perfect. We stitched and chatted for hours. Some of us even grabbed a bite to eat. One of the knitters in the group tried to teach me how to knit toe-up socks.
I just wasn't getting it though and eventually ripped it out and moved on to something else.
When I got home, I looked up some how-to help on YouTube and found THIS video.
It made all the difference and LOOK! I'm doing it!...
I'm so excited! I've got a good start on the toe and should be up to the foot part in a few more rows.
Hopefully, I'll be able to find a video on how to knit the heel parts that makes as much sense.
It will be so wonderful to not have to do kitchener stitch anymore. And, to be able to utilize more of the yarn and not worry about running out.
After our stitch gathering, we all headed over to the market there and bought some fresh fruit and veggies. Of course, I had to stroll through the candy area to see what they had!
I spotted the peanut brittle and couldn't resist buying a box of it. It's SOOOOO yummy!
I think I could eat the whole box! I'm trying hard to restrain myself.
Have a wonderful weekend!
