Pat's Knitting and Quilting
May 21, 2012
These handspun stripey summer socks have been my car knitting project since April. My MIL has been in rehab/assisted living following a hip replacement and it is a 20 minute ride each way to visit her - these socks have been entirely knit on this commute (Dave driving - not me haha) over the past few months - all of a sudden they are done!
Started with FatCatKnits Moxie in Panda blend (merino, bamboo, nylon)
Split lengthwise in 4 strips - spun end to end and chain plied - 102 grams = 385 yards of beautiful fingering weight yarn.
Cakes wound and ready to go with my granddoggy Jasmine.
With chain ply you can actually see exactly what the combed top looked like - how it was painted and there is much more distinct striping than regular 3 ply - I realize I actually like the muted effect of regular 3 ply better than these delineated stripes.
Pattern: None - just plain socks
Fleece pictures probably coming up next - it's that time of year :)
