Knit For Me, My Sister's Knitter Head, Neck and Feet KAL, Stitching the High Notes Pumpkin MAL, Swap Gift 4 Me, WIP Sock

16 Knit for Me

Hello. This post has been prepped because I’ll be running errands today. Joann is having their 20% purchase right now and I need to get some Christmas fabric for the next swap I need to work on. Plus, the teenager needs some ingredients as she’ll be making Harry Potter-inspired cupcakes for her girlfriend who’s having a birthday party most of Saturday before they gussy up and go off to Homecoming. I have to drive my daughter and three of her teammates to another high school for an away match this afternoon. And no doubt this weekend will go by fast as well.

Sock knitting has been my go-to WIP during tennis matches.


I gots a HFO! Disneyland 2018 (part of My Sisterโ€™s Knitter Head, Neck and Feet KAL)ย half done.

I tried it on and it’s snug, probably not as snug as my Yer a wizard, Harry. My right foot is an eighth of an inch longer so the foot seemed a teensy bit short. I do have a high instep as well so I’m hoping a wet-blocking will relax the fabric more. I’ll save this sock for my left foot.

I know I should cast on the second sock asap but I’ve also been working on Hogwarts, Hermione, & Halloween (part of Stitching the High Notes 2018 MAL).

I’ve been doing good on keeping the Hermione’s Everyday Socks stitch pattern going. Last time you saw about 32 rounds (eight repeats) of it. Now it’s at 52 rounds, 13 repeats). This pattern uses the Eye of Partridge heel but I’m almost tempted to try a different heel, the Fish Lips Kiss one. That however would require some concentration.

Before I log off…Jen was my swap partner for Knit Equals Joy’s 2018 Fall Mini Swap: Pumpkins, Pumpkins, Pumpkins. I received this wonderful package of pumpkiness:


Don’t you love her knitted pumpkins?! I got spoiled and got two instead of just one.

As for what I made for my swap partner, I was trying to get everything done before the post office went on lunch break so I totally forgot to take a picture! I asked Meg if she could snap a close up of the pumpkin I had knitted for her and of the handmade card I sent along with it. Stay tuned for that.

Okie doke, off to measure knit fabric. I hope you’re having a good Friday. TGIF. I’m behind on blogs and hope to catch up this Sunday as Saturday is slated for sewing. TTYS!

    1. Thanks. I’m trying to remember right now what I bought which was on the next day because a little monkey wrench called the teenager forgot her uniform for the match and Mommy had to search for it and wash it got thrown in.

  2. Great job finishing the first of the Disneyland sock! But I can understand the pull of that gorgeous orange sock yarn right now. Totally fits the season. As is your swap gift…love the pumpkins, especially that white cabled one.


  3. Hi Stefanie!
    That looks like a really comfortable sock. I love the knitted pumpkins that you received from your swap (they are adorable and I didn’t realize it was possible to knit a pumpkin ๐Ÿ™‚ ) Can’t wait to hear news about NaNoSweMo!


    1. Thank you very much, Sophie! I think I better put a reminder on my calendar to post about NaKniSweMo this Thursday as it’s the first day of November. Oh boy I better make some time to knit every day. I hope to finish my sweater by the end of the year. I doubt I’d finish it by the end of November but want to at least complete it as I’ve failed and drooped out twice already with this meme. I have to create a spreadsheet also to keep track of stitches.

      1. Looking forward to your post Stefanie! Good luck on knitting a sweater in November. Whether you finish or not, the journey is the best part right? ๐Ÿ™‚ I didn’t realize you would have to count stitches as you go along, but that makes a lot of sense!
