Super Short Knit Socks

Super short knit socks
Pattern: Super Simple Short Sock by Meghann Holcomb (For those of you who don't have a ravelry account, by the way why not???, here's the link: Super Simple Short Sock by Meghann Holcomb)
Size: 9" for a size 7.5
Needle: US 2 - 2.75 mm
Yarn : Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock Stripe
How much? 0.85 skeins = 182.8 yards (167.1m)

I named this project they way I did because I didn’t entirely stick to the pattern…as usual.
The pattern gets kind of confusing when you get to the part of the gusset, so instead I resorted to Silver’s Sock Class as usual, that is undoubtedly the best sock knitting instruction out on the web!
So for future reference I did:
5 rounds of twisted ribbing,
9 pattern repeats of the Heel
Round 1: Sl1 k1
Round 2: Sl1, Purl to end
Round 3: Sl1, K1, Sl1 to last st then Knit
Round 4: Sl1, Purl to end
Then for the shaping I used Silver’s Sock Class Heel Shaping instruction:
Round 1: Knit 18, k2tog, k1, turn
Round 2: Sl1, K5, K1 more then turn
Round 3: Sl1, Purl to within one stitch of last turn, P2tog, P1, Turn.
Round 4: Sl1, Knit to within one stitch of last turn, K2tog, K1 and turn
Repeat 2 and 3 until all stitches on both sides have been worked on
Then for the gusset I used Silver’s sock class gusset instruction:
Round 1: Knit all sts
Round 2: Needle #2 k1, SSK, k to last 3, K2tog, K.
Round 3: Knit all around.
Repeat rows 2 and 3 until 64 sts remain between 3 needles, 16, 32 and 16.
Then I knit 55 rows of stockinette St and then finally
Round 1: Knit all sts
Round 2: on Needle #1 K to last 3 sts. K2tog, k
Needle #2 k1, SSK, k to last 3, K2tog, K. On Needle #3 k1, SSK, k
Round 3: Knit all around.
repeat rounds 2 and 3 until 16 sts remain(20 rounds) then finish off grafting the toes.

Merry Christmas!

"For unto you is born this day in the City of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord"
Luke 2:11


Today is a wonderful day (although it should be everyday) to remember what took place over 2000 years ago, predestined in eternity past before man had yet to be created. The birth of the awaited Messiah, the Savior, Christ the Lord. It is a day to celebrate not only His birth, while at the same time be humbled by the condition in which the God of the universe was brought into this world, but to celebrate His life, His death and His resurrection. It is a day, if you are a Christian, to thank God for His salvation which by His grace we have received; if you are not a Christian, today is the day of Salvation, a day to look within and see our wretched sinfulness and to look to Jesus the God-man who on the cross bore our sins, received the punishment we deserve, died and on the third day resurrected, so that we through repentance and faith in Him may be saved, and be justified before the Lord. It is a day to spend in prayer whether it be in thanksgiving and/or repentance, a day to celebrate Christ the Lord and saviour. So go spend it as you will but before you do and while you are still on the internet, here are a few articles/videos/blogs you should, I correct myself you must read:
1. The Christmas Story by Dan Phillips
2. Is it dangerous to Celebrate Christmas?: Deconstructing Christmas by Jen Guerriero
3. The Reason for the Season: It's about the Cross by Go Fish (A Video/Song)

Thanksgiving in Miami

I need help! I'll be spending thanksgiving day and weekend in Miami with my cousin and her husband's family and there are three items I'd like to buy but have no clue, and I'm sure they'll have no clue as well, where to buy them so ATTENTION all Christians (or anyone who might know) in Miami where can I get the following:

1. An Electronics Store where I can buy this item (if it has the shape of a microphone even better :D i.e. ) ?
2. A MUSIC STORE where I can buy CD's by Keith and Kristyn Getty and Sovereign Grace Music?
3. A Christian Book Store where I can buy the ESV Bible study?


This post will be up up until a few days before my trip, I leave november 26th. Any help will be greatly appreciated!
