Kinda Magic

We have a new sock yarn coming in February. It looks very cool. Why am I showing this so early? It is for experienced sock knitters. You might want to get a pair of socks on the needles now so you're ready when the yarn arrives.

REGIA is pleased to announce a brand-new release, one that will make the perfect gift to discover in a stocking this year... A collection of unique leopard print self-patterning socks! - it's magic!

Why it is for experienced sock knitters only:

• Tension is super important in this pattern. - A small difference in tension could throw off the design!

• No one person knits exactly the same way, so for the KINDA MAGIC SOCK YARN knitters might need a few chances to get the tension spot on. - So experiment until you’ve got it.

• Once the knitter has figured out the correct tension, she can show off her socks knitting know-how by concentrating on becoming the ultimate knitting master.
  • • As a knitter new to socks knitting, you might want to get used to socks knitting techniques with one of our REGIA effects, where tension is not so important to receive the desired design.

How to knit the KINDA MAGIC SOCKS:

• This design only works with a cast on of 60 stitches.

• The 80g ball is for socks in sizes 36 to 41.

• This sock is worked from the cuff down, working as a tube, then one will add the heel in at the end.

• The heel and toe are worked in the same way, making things a little easier.
• To help the knitter further, the beginning of the yarn is marked with EASY START on the ball band.

• And to help getting the correct tension, a small stripe section in stocking stitch is added. It is important that the stripe should be exactly 1 round of knitting, if it is longer than 1 round, the knitter should go up a needle size. If it is shorter than 1 round, you should go down a needle size.

• Once in the main section, the knitter will see the leopard print spots appear as she works. If the leopard print design is leaning to the left, she is knitting too tightly, if they are leaning to the right she is knitting too loosely.

I didn't make it to church Sunday morning but Beth did and came home talking about a restaurant in Hamilton called 541. 

Dad and Beth went for lunch today. The food is not expensive and they both enjoyed their meal. When paying you can donate money which is put towards buttons. These buttons can be used by those who don't have money to pay for a meal. Here is a great article from The Globe and Mail which explains the restaurant and the buttons.

Beth said that the restaurant is very nice. It's an old bank building. You can also donate hats and scarves. They are hanging for those in need to take.

Here is the link to their website. If you live in the Hamilton area, please check it out.
