I've been taking a break from hats....by knitting some socks.
Still hot outside, still have working air conditioning on the inside.
I have a plan (which I hesitate to mention since as soon as I mention it I'll stop following it. But I'm mentioning it anyway....)
I have a plan to knit one pair of socks per each week for M4A until... wait, I don't have an ending date... Maybe until I feel done? I don't know... Must work on this plan some more...
Anyway, these were Week #1's socks:
These are the Lacy Ribs and Cables House socks (Aug. pattern from 6SoxKAL). I used size 6 dpns and red Cascade 220 (and there's a lot leftover).
Nice, easy, fun pattern that makes a pretty sock.
These were Week#2's socks:
They're a mixture of leftover yarns knitted with a brown that I dyed to go with the variegated. 36 sts, size 5 dpns. (I think. I have a jumbled mess on my coffee table right now, but I think that's what I used.)
And here are Week#3's:
Since I'm still on week 3, I'm still in good shape. I have until Sat. to finish them and only half a sock to go.
