Hey there folks.
First, a(n) FO! Ms. R's Redbow socks are done, and are due to be posted tomorrow! (first photo for colour accuracy, second for proof of completion)
Pattern: Toe-up Socks with Gusset and Slip-Stitch Heel from Wendyknits
Yarn: Fleece Artist Basic Merino Sock Kit, colourway unknown
Needles: Addi Lace 2.5 mm circular
Start: February 3rd, 2008
End: March 1st, 2008
Mods: Worked over 64 stitches (increased one extra stitch at start of gusset and decreased it at end of heel). Double-wrapped short row toe. Worked with magic loop. 3x1 rib over instep and leg with an inch or so of 1x1 rib at cuff. EZs sewn bindoff.
Verdict: Same as the last pair. Love the yarn, the needles are great, an excellent pattern. It went suitably fast and I will definitely be using this pattern and yarn again (and again and again). Heather, I reallyreallyreally hope they fit well!
So what do I do when I cast off some socks? Start more of course. These will be in the Shibui Sock (colour more accurate in the last post, I think) for another birthday in a few months. Oh, and please note, goat shown for size comparison (there are more photos over in flickr and on Ravelry). I'm thinking the Hedgerow pattern...
But of course I can't knit 2 pairs of socks in a row. That would be crazytalk! (hush you) So...
(is that... damn goat...)
For now I will say only this, Harrisville New England Shetland (two 900 yard cones), a pretty darn popular project (I don't mind being trendy, I don't mind being trendy, I don't mind being trendy.... yeah, I'm not convinced either), and I will tell you more when I post next. I will post when I have at least *some* progress to show. Oh, and it's not a secret project this time, but I do need to hold back a little bit of content, eh.
