How I Spent My Summer Vacation

Yes, eat your heart out, Patons Classic Wool, she took me on vacation! Here I am, basking in my colorful glory campside in Yellowstone.

I've got both feet down to the toe decreases and am surprised at how fast it went.

I must confess, when all else fails, I knit a pair of socks. Actually, I always have a pair on the needles. For two reasons,

Summer is practically here.  I have heard rumors that summer arrived weeks ago to many parts of the continent.  In

Hi! I'm New Around Here...

Hi! My name is Julie (JDKnits) and I'm thrilled to be here with you, blogging about the lovely Patons yarns and patterns.

Next week I'll tell you about the delicious new Patons Classic Wool Roving that I got my paws on for the first time this week. Mmmmmm, you're going to love it! Here's

My Precious!

Since I work from home, the UPS truck is a frequent visitor to our house. And since I absolutely detest shopping and do nearly everything I can online, that only adds to his frequent visits. Honestly, he's part of the family. But still there is a sort of giddy excitement that fills me when the truck pulls up of late.

Too much fun

The Feather & Fan sock went bowling with the family this week. It was the twins’ birthday and they deserved a fun day out. I don’t know if it’s a Michigan thing, or a winter thing, or a Midwestern thing or what, but people bowl quite a bit in the winter ‘round these parts.

These are the Feather and Fan socks done in Patons Kroy Socks Rich Plum Stripes. This was a fun pattern to knit, with enough detail to keep me interested, but not enough

Overly Ambitious

At least the heel turning was every bit as magical as I remembered it. It's crazy how

Freak Occurrence?

A couple of days ago I was at a "sit-n-knit" and we got to talking about knitting style. As I was working on the Fair Isle Socks, it was pointed out that I knit "wrong". You see, I knit all projects worked in the round, inside out. I was amongst a minimum of 10 other Knitters and was

Lesson Learned

Photo 1Since I am the type of person who jumps in head first, it was only natural that I would choose a complex pattern as my first blog project. I chose the super cute, fun, Fair Isle Socks from the Socks in the City pattern book.

Methodical

There's something you should know about me. I'm a very methodical person. I enjoy calendars, spreadsheets, lists, charts and graphs. This trait sometimes hinders more than helps me. For example, I waste about 5 minutes of knitting time each day calculating how long each pattern repeat of my Feather and Fan socks is and how many days it
