Kilt Hose Fever Approaches Again

Posted by mtmom on July 4, 2010

I totally missed blogging last week! — Sorry ’bout that.  Onward!

The instructors for our bagpipe version of Music Camp arrive this coming Thursday, and I want to be ready!  I’ve been adding to my extended swatch of possible yarn choices for Robert to look at, and working on finishing the kilt hose for myself which I began about this time 2 years ago.

Swatch rolled up

top end. . .. . . middle (sportweight to left, worsted to right). . .

. . . bottom end (worsted to left, doubled fingering to right).

And, yes, I have written down *all* of the yarn names and colors.

Nearly done with the knee-high stockings.  I plan to make the cuffs separately, with extended ribbing (in smaller yarn) to be tucked in at the tops of the socks and then folded down.
