Year of Projects - Denmark Post 04

Knitting on the Road: Canada • Canal du Midi • Conwy • Dalarna  Denmark • Friday Harbor • Hiiumaa • Huron Mountain • New England • The Road to Oslo • Santa Fe • Spey Valley • Christmas in Tallinn • Traveler's Stockings • Uinta Cabin • Unst • Whitby 

Progress on my Denmark sock has been slow and steady. Depending on how my work day goes, I may be able to finish this first sock today. And then get started on the second sock before I entirely forget the mods I made to the heel now that I've added two repeats to the sock to accommodate the smaller than recommended needles and the finer than recommended sock yarn.

There has been lots of progress on my secret Christmas knitting project. You'll have to take my word for it though, because to look at those massive balls of yarn that never seem to get any smaller, you'd think there was no progress at all. They've become quite the topic of conversation around these parts; mostly we've been bouncing ideas around about what to do with the million yards that are likely to be leftover once the secret project is done. Please don't forget that it's a secret - the intended recipient reads this blog and the comments. If you know what it is, please don't let the cat out of the bag!

Once my Denmark socks are done I plan to have a good look at the rest of the patterns in the book Knitting on the Road to see if there are a couple suitable for gift giving. If so, they'll move to the front of the queue. There's very little time left until Christmas and I think I'd better focus on that deadline ahead of everything else.

Wow, you are really doing a great job of building suspense. I hope there will be a big reveal once the intended recipient sees it!

I wish I could make socks so fast :) I love the feel of them and wouldn't mind having only handknit socks in my drawer. So far though with 4 people in the house all wanting socks I'm just not fast enough. And all yours are so darn pretty too *sigh*

Your sock looks good, hopefully as I type you've already done it completely. I've been trying to think what you can make with the leftovers and being th foody that I am, all I can think of is a bowl of raspberry ripple ice-cream .....gosh, I do hope that's not what you're making for the secret gift ;-)

The sock is looking super. I think I may know what the secret project is, leftovers could be made into coordinating items if it is what I think it is, or another of the same. Loooking forward to the reveal to see if I have guessed right
