I had every intention of posting photos two weeks ago. What happened? I feel scattered. I’m torn between mommyhood, wifehood, tv time, knitting, cooking, not cooking, reading, yoga, Wollmeise yarn hunting, (very rarely) cleaning, Ravelry, ebay, my walking group, Baby Boot Camp, the Twilight books, shopping, and staring off into space.
Summer of Socks is drawing to a close and I’ve just completed my 4th pair (see below) and I have 2 more pairs nearing completion. SOS officially ends today and then I want to knit a pair for the informal summer of socks my Chicago knitting Group is doing. September also brings the first solid and semi-solid sock knitalong and I already have the yarn and pattern all picked out. Oh, and I want to knit another little sweater for Cori.
Then there are the dozens of pairs of socks, more little sweaters for Cori, and lace scarves I want to knit. Am I delusional?
Even with all sorts of stuff going on I am so very happy. 🙂
Yarn Chef Socks
Pattern: Silver’s Sock Class toe-up sock on two circular needles
Yarn: Yarn Chef Minestrone In the Pond
Needles: HiyaHiya size 0 circulars
Comments: These socks were my second pair using the two circular technique. While it seems like a perfectly reasonable method for sock knitting, I’m heading back to my dpns, I think. I find it takes more time to slide the needles rather than just move from double point to double point. Plus I was getting some rather nasty laddering even though I was tightening stitches on the “corners.”
The yarn is some I picked up a couple years ago from the Yarn Chef’s Etsy store. I absolutely love the feel of it in the skein and it was very pleasant to knit. It softened even more after its bath. I love the slow fading stripes. I have another skein in my stash that may be knitted sooner rather than later.
