A nurse who knits…

A quick project

Here’s a few pics of Waldo modeling my latest half FO. It’s a baby sock from the New Pathways for Knitters book by Cat Bordhi. I’m following her suggestion of knitting baby versions of each of the architectures so I can learn them before progressing.


Please forgive the drunken look on my face. Camera flash tends to make my eyes blink prematurely and I get that dazed and confused look on my face. Trust me… this is the best one. At least Waldo looks good.

As for the sock, I am using On Your Toes. That bamboo/nylon blend I got at The Grove. Needles are Crystal Palace size 2 DPN’s. Can you believe it, I’m using DPN’s??? That almost never happens but Cat only gives directions for DPN’s and 2 circular needles. Since I don’t know how to knit in the round with 2 circs and I don’t have 2 circs of anything, I went to the default DPN’s I’m sure for the next socks, I’ll whip out the magic loop. It’s not exactly the gauge that Cat Bordhi calls for in this particular project but it will fit some newborn baby and my canine baby. As you can tell from the pictures though, Waldo is not a fan of socks.

I’m off to look up New Pathways on Ravelry to see if I can find finished projects. I want to be inspired!

  1. Neat idea! That is a good way to familiarize yourself with the different architectures. Waldo is a great sock model 🙂

  2. Funny! If you do four different ones, his little paws will be toasty warm this winter.
