Pat's Knitting and Quilting
June 19 , 2007
Before I get to the sock agenda....I have some finished socks!
Pattern: cuff down, short row heel (I wanted to keep the fun stripes going) over 56 stitches
In 2 days Summer of Socks begins and I am left with one pair of socks (New Englands) on my needles. My plan is to make some socks that have been in the queue for a long time (although some new patterns just got added when Summer Knitty came out) and I will use stash sock yarn (of which there is PLENTY).
The list includes, but is not limited to....(sorry no time for links today) Miranda, Thelonius, Spearfish, Cable Twist, Bavarian Twisted Stitch, Dream Twister, Bisenkorbchen, Breeze, Nordic Lights, Anastasia, Colorwork from MSKS, kit socks from RBK and STR, Setesdal, and a few more Nancy Bush (if I'm lucky...I'll get 2 or 3 from this list done!) - while at the same time making some plain stockinette socks from gorgeous hand painted/dyed yarn that I have collected. I'm not going to enter the "most socks" contest or anything...I don't want to be in a hurry - I just want to make socks that I love.
