Sound the trumpets! I give you the new header for Once Upon A Sock…
Ever since I joined the group, I wanted to make a header for our monthly posts. I at first thought to draw it by hand, like a kawaii chibi knitting a sock, but my perfectionist streak totally gave me drawer’s block. Then I thought of word art and poked around Pinterest. I tried Cool Text but wasn’t feelin’ the results. I tried Tagxedo and Wordle, but our laptop doesn’t have the needed plug-ins and I do not dare install them as the mister would go Donkey Kong if a virus happened. So I then read this pin, and proceeded to hunker down and put stuff together via Microsoft Word. There was a lot of tinkering, manipulation of text, and editing but I finally got to where I wanted to go. Kat, Katherine, and Paula will feature this header in their posts as well.
Right now, since mine is prepped, I won’t have their direct, Once Upon a Sock post links until tomorrow.
I have made terrific progress on my Yule Ball sock. The leg is completed in the Hermione’s Everyday Socks stitch pattern. I inserted the heel placement yarn for my afterthought heel; this comes from Susan B. Anderson’s Smooth Operator Socks pattern. I won’t put in the heel until the end.
Thinking ahead, should I use contrasting yarn? I don’t really have anything to go well with this Space Cadet yarn as my sock yarn is pretty much variegated. I do have some solid colored yarn but the colors I have, like black, brown, or green, don’t complement this pale pink. So something to think about because I would rather not buy yarn just for this purpose.
That’s all I got for today. Please check out Kat, Katherine, and Paula’s posts.
I will update their links Thursday after drop off but their names in green will take you to their homepages. 05.05.: All links have been updated. Thanks for comin’ by. TTYL.
