As you may have gotten from the title, I have some finished pairs of socks to share with you today. Not being quite prepared I didn’t share them as quickly as I had hoped and dived right into a mini four day vacation with my family and boyfriend. Vacations by the lake are amazing, vacations by the lake at your Grandmother’s house are even better. Unfortunately (or fortunately) I didn’t take photos this time as I was thoroughly enjoying the sunny weather, and for you that meant no blog post to show off my socks. Well here it is!
The first pair (rav link) I finished actually just before my WIPs roundup post went up. I knit these out of Cascade Yarns Heritage Wave in the Solar colorway on US 1 (2.25mm) dpns. It was an enjoyable experience and the way the color plays on the socks is so cool. I don’t have any socks on the red side of the color wheel so they fill the void nicely.
The other pair of socks I finished are these stripey beauts (rav link). I knit these magic loop (my ususal) out of Knit Picks Felici Fingering in the Sprinkles colorway. These were so much fun to knit as I always wanted to knit ‘one more stripe’. I may need to cast on my other skeins of Felici soon.
Well, there you have it, two new pairs of socks ready and waiting for fall. This year I’m on the fence, do I want fall to begin yet or not? The pull of wearing warm woolly handknits again is certainly getting stronger. I guess I’ll take what I can get!
