Gosh where did the week go — my last post was design wall Monday. It’s been a busy, tiring week and my knitting pace has fallen off compared to the last two weeks. The past two weeks by Friday night I’d be finishing off the foot and toe of the second sock of a pair of socks. Not so tonight.
I do have the first sock finished of this pair — my 3rd Socktoberfest pair. And I do have the second sock barely started on the needles next to it but certainly won’t be finishing that off tonight even if I don’t go to sleep.
But — I did also start on the 4th pair of socks. I was just about done one night with the toe of the sock shown but if I finished the toe, I wouldn’t have the next sock ready to knit on during the bus ride to work. I get a lot of knitting done on that ride to and from each day and I don’t like having to cast on a new sock on the bus. So rather than finish the toe, I cast on and started on the Zigzags Sock pattern.
The Zigzags are made using another of the Opal Bicolor yarns so it has such great colors to it. You can’t tell from my photo but it’s call Zigzags because there is a single row of purl stitches that travel up and down around the socks in what else? – yes a zig zag pattern. Just a great subtle little texture addition that I really like.
But it’s only October 19 so I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I can meet my personal challenge goal of 4 pairs of socks.
Oh and my package of yarn purchased on I love yarn day has arrived but I’ll show you that after I can ge a good photo in daylight because I so love the colors — and it’s Skinny Bugga so what’s not to love!
