Tennarisukka Ankle Sock

I’ve been participating in Socks with Sarah, verrrrry slowly.  Most days I only knitted one row.  I finally finished my first sock.  I’ve been making Tennarisukka ankle socks.  The pattern for the socks is free, and they have really fun texture.  They fit really nicely and are much cuter than the white sports socks I wear all the time.  These are definitely my new favorite socks.

Okaasan Hug Monster

My husband bought me a book of crocheted monsters, Crochet Bakemono, last year.  I just got around to making one of them, Okaasan, for Valentine’s Day.  Okaasan just begs for a hug.

I had a few issues with the pattern.  At first it wasn’t making sense at all, then I realized it was written in British terms rather than American.  It’s confusing because we use the same terms, but they mean different things.  There was very little instruction on how to cut out and apply the felt pieces.
