On the Needles - 1/18

I got my first purple sock finished! I did the kitchener stitch to close the toe and sewed the end in. I still need to sew the end in for the start, but I will get to that when I finish the next sock.

I finally found a great video to show how to do the stitch and my stitches end up looking like they should!

And I started the next sock and got just about the right spot for the colors to match up. I am still working on the cuff.

I finished the ruffle scarf and I didn't like how short it was so I ripped it out and started again. I think I have figured this out and it is working better.

Max just had to try it out. And he is a little blurry because he wouldn't stay still long enough. lol
