SSP and Working on Writing Knitting Book

Working on writing my kniting book and the ribbing of this wool gray baby sock

I have been having health challenges lately and getting much better though still resting a lot and recovering.  I have to sit most of the time as I regain my strength.  The Lord is our strength and He is so merciful.  Also, we’re excited at the news of another baby on the way.  My little baby bump shows above in the photo.  🙂

Yesterday I had some energy to continue working a little on a knitting book we hope to release as soon as possible.  In conjunction with the book, we also would like to release videos as well for instant download.  Our family continues to pray about all these projects.

In the photo above, I am working on the ribbing (K1P1) for the gray baby sock.  I love using double-pointed needles!  🙂

I also love working on knitting sweet baby socks!  It also makes this book writing project even more meaningful being pregnant with our sixth blessing.  We desire to bless others with this skill so that you too could knit baby or toddler socks for your children with high quality yarns at an affordable price.  Our family loves saving money and great bargains, especially for high quality products and items.  🙂

I’m sorry if the photo above is not very clear.  I mainly wanted to show a YO pair I was working on.  Do you see how there’s a stitch on the left needle and it is joined to the stitch on the right needle?  I am working on SSP.

Since I am on the purl side, I slip the stitches knit-wise.  This corrects the two stitches that are slipped.

After I took this photo, then I returned the stitches back to the left needle.

In the photo above, I’ve corrected the two stitches that were slipped to the right needle.  The two stitches were returned to the left.

Then it was time to place the right needle behind the two stitches and Purl them off.  It looks like a funny step.  If you keep your stitches close to the tips of the needles (being careful not to drop any too) it makes it easy to Purl the stitches off.

Do you see the drawings and sketches on the paper in the background?  Our family is so excited about our book projects, especially this one!  This knitting book is geared towards beginners in a step-by-step method.  I don’t want to just leave you with a pattern.  I want to be able to teach you without having to be beside you.  We want to teach you a valuable skill and are passionate about educating!

Enjoy your baby sock knitting!
