Second Sock and Broomstick Lace

socks2

I finished the second sock of the “too small” DH socks… This is one mistake that I don’t really mind since they fit me…lol   After 2 pair and several frogging trips, I think I am tired of this colorway.. ;o)  But I have to admit that knitting socks is becoming much easier as I go along. 

 

broomsticklacescarf2009When I first decided to try Broomstick Lace I had my DH cut several pieces of .. (did you know that with menopause the first thing to go with the memory lapses is nouns?.. Well.. now you do..lol) ..aha..   1/2″ and 3/4″ dowel rods to make me several “Broomstiks”.   I found some stash yarn and decided to make a scarf with it and used a 3/4″  Broomstik.  It goes so quickly that I am almost finished.  I think I may try a crab stitch edging on this one to see what that will do along the sides.   (Also.. plans in the works to put a bit of a point on the Broomstiks)  Stay tuned…
