Still doing socks...
I finished the Sweet Socks the day before Sue's birthday. I think they turned out nice and she seemed to like them. They also counted as my June socks for SAM 6.
The first sock is done and I am on the cuff of the second sock. I'd like these to be the first socks I finish for Summer of Socks.
Next up is a pair of Log Cabin Socks by Anne Woodbury from "Handknit Holidays" by Melanie Falick. I'm using Cascade "Pastaza" #021 on size US 6 (4.25 mm) needles.
I find it hard to work with the bulkier wool when the temperatures are in the 80's so they are hibernating for a while. They will probably be finished when it cools down. I think this pattern will make good Christmas gifts. It's a fun pattern so far.
And the socks I'm actually working on tonight are a pair of toddler socks that I'm trying to finish by midnight so they count as my July socks for SAM 6. I knew I wouldn't finish any of the other socks so I cast on with leftover OnLine Supersocke "Hiking" using size US 2 (2.75 mm) needles. The first sock is done and I have 1" left on the second before I start the toe decreases.
Will I make it?
Yes, I will. But only if I stop writing this post and get back to knitting them. I'll post pictures tomorrow.
