I finished hand winding a center pull ball of the yarn I want to make summer socks for myself out of. I’m not entirely decided on what style of little lace ankle height sock to make. Still, the yarn is gorgeous.
I’ve turned the heal on Isaiah’s socks and am about an inch or two up the cuff. They will cover his calves.
I went to Black Sheep in Eugene and picked up a lot of sock yarn. I have yarn for socks for Lisa and John as well as myself. I visited my friend Mayling today and the leftover yarn from Isaiah’s socks are the perfect color for her so I’m going to make some little ankle socks for her as well. I don’t yet have yarn for my friend Michael’s socks but live near to Twisted so that shouldn’t be a problem.
There are probably other things to make besides socks but right now making socks feels really good. I think I will stick with it.
The socks for my husband (which I toed once and tore entirely out because the size was so off) are 60 stitches around and fit his foot perfectly. Superwash merino fingering weight 45 North.
I’ve had some pretty intense illness issues which are documented at http://www.rebekahgolden.com
This is just a little post to say I finished my socks:
And I’m working on socks for my husband Isaiah:
There are also a lot of craft supplies around here that have been waiting for me to get better. Crazy stuff coming.
If I’m not careful this whole blog will become about making mistakes.
Knitting on the bus, purled my way across a knit in my ribbing. Didn’t notice for two rows. Decided to just do the same (a few rows late) on the other sock and call it a feature. Symmetry is intent.
