Summer of Socks 2008 has begun!

June 23rd, 2008

Well, want take a wild guess as to what I did this weekend? The Summer of Socks knit along kicked off at 12:01 am Saturday morning. I made it to midnight, cast on, knit one row, then went to bed – yes, I can still party with the big boys! I knit on and off all weekend, and here’s what I accomplished:

 

Pattern: Toe-to-Cuff Lace Rib Socks, Heartstrings
Yarn: Artyarns Supermerino
Needles: Size 5 addi lace circs

 

 

One sock done, the other growing quite steadily.

 

Pattern: Rainy Day Socks, Yuliya Sullivan
Yarn: Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino
Needles: Size 3 addi lace circs

 

 

Just finished the gusset decreases and am cruising down the foot.

 

You didn’t think I could just cast on for one pair of socks did you? Though the patterns are similar, both are easy to work. When I get bored with one, I switch to the other. Hopefully I’ll have both completed by the end of the week – don’t quote me on that though – life has a tendency to get in the way sometimes.

    Wowza! That’s a lot of sock knitting for one weekend. I love the patterns and the yarn choices. Don’t forget to stretch while doing so much intense knitting. I hope we’ll see the finished socks live and in person in the LYS soon.
