I managed to finish up two pairs of socks in the past few days. Yippee for socks (the only thing I seem capable of knitting this summer)!
Pattern: Cabled Footies from One Skein
Yarn: Lorna's Laces Shepherd Worsted
Needles: Sz 8 Clover DPNs
Dates: July 2-25 (on and off)
For: My One Skein Pal
Mods: I didn't make the toes as pointy as the pattern calls for.
Thoughts: A bit baggy around the ankles. But cute! Hopefully will make lovely warm house socks whenever it cools off.
Pattern: Generic sock pattern
Yarn: Trekking XXL 100
Needles: Sz 1 Chiagoo DPNs
Dates: June 1 (or so)-July 22
Thoughts: I think it's funny that one of these socks is brighter than the other. Ah, the joy of the Trekking! Love them!
In other sock news, I apparently have a sock curse. I restarted the purple Koigu socks as the Mermaid socks from Cool Socks, Warm Feet, and it was too small. Drat! I'm thinking a wee socky break might be in order. Of course, I have some plain vanilla socks on the needles, but I may work on some other items before I go back to the socks.
I'm also a bit burned out on Project Spectrum. I've been badly neglecting it for several weeks, and my time is about to vanish when I go back to work on Tuesday. So I may not pressure myself to finish up these last few pairs of PS socks. We'll see.
What else can I get off the needles this weekend? Stay tuned!
