Friday FOs

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
For: Me!
Mods: None
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!

    Wow, these socks are fantastic! I especially like the first ones, I'm way impressed by your cabling! But also the second ones rock, such a great colorline that you've been using! Congrats!

  2. Beautiful socks! I haven't used Trekking but I love the way it knits up.

  3. I just finished a Garterlac Dishcloth and it was a nice little break from socks on small needles.

  4. Great socks!! I love that trekking variety as well.

  5. Those cable footies look comfy. They would make a great gift.

  6. Nice cable socks! Wow! And the Trekking socks came out great too!

  7. Your footies are lovely! And I adore anything knitted from Trekking 100. :)

    PS can be as demanding or undemanding as you like. :)
