Pat's Knitting and Quilting
October 3, 2006
Oh how I love an excuse to concentrate on socks! I finally completed my Friday Harbor Socks last night (the toes have been patiently waiting to be done for several weeks). These are comfy, cozy, soft, warm beautiful socks!
Next for this October sock celebration.....the continuation of the Austermann Step husband socks. Tried them on him last night and I have to continue that heel flap a bit longer - his heels sure are deeper than mine!
Last but not least is the October/November sock for the Knitting On the Road KAL and happily one of my very favorites.... the TRAVELER'S STOCKINGS. I am using Knitpicks "Gloss" ( a soft lovely comination of merino wool and silk) in the Woodland Sage colorway. This is the 1st time I've used this yarn and I am so pleased. It has that beautiful sheen from the silk and the softness of merino. I think the texture will show up nicely. This is also my 1st time using KnitPicks needles - doing 2 socks on 2 circulars, size 0 (2mm) and so far so good! I completed the lace edge last night as a reward for completing the Friday Harbor socks.
