Time to share my most recent pairs of socks. I am proud to say I have been going six months strong with my Socks 2011 challenge. Six pairs down, six more to go.
For May, the surprise was “German” yarn I bought to make T. a pair of socks. This is the second pair of socks I have made for him now. These knit up so quickly due to knitting in the round. I was surprised at how well these fit him considering the lack of stretchiness. These are ready for when the weather cools down and his ankle is healed!
Then for June I pulled out one of the yarns I have been waiting to knit – Skinny Bugga by The Sanguine Gryphon. The yarn was heavenly to work with – even better than my April socks, which also had cashmere. I knit a pattern from Wendy Johnson‘s book – the Ribbed Ribbon socks. Great pattern with easy repeats. I cannot believe how well these fit. I may have to stick with toe up socks from now on. Cannot wait to wear these in the fall.
The July socks are already in the making. I am also finishing up my first Camp Loopy project. Cannot wait to share that with all of you.
