I forgot to post at the end of April with an update for the sock challenge. Too many things going on — or maybe cause I don’t have a finished “pair” to show you!
While I didn’t get a “pair” of socks done in April, I did get one new sock made which just needs the toe woven, and am working on another sock (not the mate to the new one but a mate to a different pair) which I’m just about ready to start the heel on.
Good thing I’m ahead of schedule with nine pairs of socks done in four months! Part of it was also that I was stopping and ripping out several different socks due to not liking the yarn in a particular pattern or wanting to change the needle size. Also the Spectra scarf I’m making has taken some of the otherwise sock kntting time. So I’ll show you how that’s coming along since I don’t have any new socks to show yet.
As you can see the colors are sloooowly changing shade on this one – but much like most of the sock knitting this one is a great take along project (at least now that it’s not real long) because it’s such a simple pattern to memorize.
These also arrived this week — it’s Malabrigo Finito. It’s only made once a year and is supposed to be the softest wool. It does feel incredibly wonderful and I love the colors – can’t wait to see them knit up tho I may have to see if I have enough of one of those to make a cowl since it would feel so lovely against your neck. These are smaller hanks so it takes two of them to make a pair of socks.
So Sock challengees – did you finish any socks this month — or at least make progress on some?
