I had a great weekend!

Happy Monday everybody! I had a great weekend. I had the chance to spend time with my hubby! We had a lot of fun together. I also got the chance to finish my sock, yay!!
I have to say it doesn’t look perfect, but you know what? It’s OK, because it’s my first pair of socks, and it’s the first time that I have finished a big project with DPN’. I feel great and I look at them as a proud mom.

Feliz Lunes para todos! Mi fin the semana estuvo muy lindo. Tuve la oportunidad de pasar tiempo con mi esposo! Nos re divertimos juntos. También la oprtunidad de terminar la media que me faltaba, estoy muy contenta al respecto. Tengo que decirles que no esta perfecta, pero saben que? No me importa porque es el primer par de medias que he tejido en mi vida, y es la primera vez que termino un proyecto largo en agujas de doble punta.!
Me siento feliz y miro mis medias como una mamá orgullosa.

On Saturday I got 2 packages on the mail, it was my yarn!! You should see, it looks beautiful, now a have some pictures to show you.
El Sábado me llegó por correo la lana que estaba esperando, no saben lo linda que es! Ahora tengo unas fotos para mostrarles

I love pink and green together!! Me encanta el verde y el rosa juntos!!!

This is the one that I order for my mom, isn't pretty?
Esta es la que ordene para mi mamá, no creen que es linda??

I was thinking that today I’ll start my mom’s socks, but I‘m concern about the pattern that I picked. When I knit the first pair I did it with worsted yarn and DPN’6, casting on 40 sts, the yarn that I’m going to use now is fingering weight and I’m going to knit with DPN’3, but the question now is: how many sts should I cast on? Do you think that if I make it with 40 is it going to be too small? I really want to use the same pattern that I used for the first pair, because I already know it. If you have an idea about this can you please let me know? I need help! Thank you my friends!

Estába pensando que hoy voy a empezar las medias de mi mami, pero tengo una preocupación acerca del patron que elegí. Cundo tejí el primer par use lana gruesita con aguajas doble punta N0 6 Y 40 puntos. Ahora voy a usar lana finita en agujas N0 3 pero nosé con cuantos puntos? Ustedes creen que si le pongo 40 puntos van a ser muy chiquitas? Qué hago? Yo quería usar el mismo patron que en las primeras medias porque ya lo conosco, alguna sugerencia que me ayude??
Desde ya muchas gracias amigas!

I almost forgot to show you, some yarn that I found on Etsy for only $2.50 each! and of course I had to order it!

Casi me olvidaba de mostrarles una lana re linda que encontre en Etsy, por solo $2.50 cada una, por supuesto la tuve que ordenar!

What do you think?
Que te parece?

See you later, have a great afternoon! Después nos vemos, besitos,

I've had this link in my bookmarks forever hoping one day that I'll get over the fear and knit up some socks (I have a pattern that I really want to make for K.)

It gives you a chart for what weight yarn and how many to cast on. Hopefully that'll help you out.

Thank you very much Angie! I will try this and we'll see what happens!
I hope everything is going well!

The typical women's sock pattern is for 60 or 64 cast on stiches. I usually stick with 60. (Men's basic sock is cast on with 72) All for fingering yarn. One thing to watch is your said you were going to use size 3's. Are you a tight knitter or a loose knitter? I always use size 1's with fingering weight yarn. So the size 3's might be a bit loose. Just thought you'd like to think about it first before putting all that work into something that might be too loosely knit :o) Good luck!
