The end is in site!

I have finished all the boy’s socks. Woo-Hoo. I’m working on the girl’s second sock. I’m doing the “Old shale” pattern on the ankle as a fold over cuff with a 7×1 ribbing over all. I made a couple modifications, I shortened the pattern repeat from 24 to 16 for the fold over so she can wear them with boots. I used ShiBuiknits, Orchid colorway purchased from They are turning out soooooo cute. It is way more fun to use a interesting pattern.


I currently live in Williamsburg, Virginia with my husband and three youngest children. I'm trying to spend as much time knitting as I can.
