WIP Wednesday: February Sock (AKA Mongolian Boots) Update
It snowed this weekend and I took advantage of the cold weather to work on my February New Year’s resolution socks. Here’s where I’m at:
Mongolian boots?! I wonder what those really look like? I wonder what patterns and colors they use? I have more of this Irish wool, and I have to say that it is not what you would wear against your skin. (The sheep that sourced this fiber actually had hair mixed in with their wool! I haven’t seen that since I since I spun some California Red that I got dirt cheap. Pokey, pokey, pokey!!) It is perfect, however, for over-socks/boots. It does dye well, is very lofty and warm, and I’m pretty sure it will felt like a charm. Hmmm…
I weave, knit and read in Aurora, Colorado where my garden lives. I have 2 sons, a knitting daughter-in-law, a grandson and two exceptionally spoiled kittens. In 2014 I was diagnosed with a serious rare autoimmune disease called systemic sclerosis along with Sjogren's Disease and fibromyalgia.

Totally digging the socks. I’ve GOT to try knitting them!
They are an adventure. I have learned so many new techniques while doing these socks, and gave up on her instructions and invented a new technique or two on the way. Can’t wait for the toe, which looks somewhat terrifying.
Too cool for socks! Should be gloves!
I think the pattern would be great for gloves/mitts, but I need less scratchy wool. Was that a Christmas request? 🙂
I’ve enjoyed reading your blog. I’ve nominated it for the Liebster award.
Wow! Thank you very much!
