I went to the knitting group again last night. They weren’t kidding when they said it was huge on Mondays. There were SO MANY knitters there, it was awesome. I met a bunch of nice girls and got to talk about some of my favorite things (ah, like my love for Jason Segel!). I also managed to finish (including Kitchenering the toe and weaving in the ends) Danny’s socks! So the first one took more than a month and the second less than a week? So strange, but so it goes. I still can’t find my good camera (and I unpacked a lot more stuff looking for it) but at least these photos were taken in the daytime, so the color is more accurate.
These were knit on US1 needles with Cascade Heritage Paints color 9872. I have plenty of leftovers from the skein and I’m thinking of maybe striping the green leftovers with these grey ones for some ankle socks. We’ll see.
After I got home last night I asked my boyfriend to help me wind up some Socks That Rock (a Valentine’s gift from him) so I could start a new pair. We wanted to watch Buffy at the same time, though, so I let him off the hook (he’s never seen it before – we’re currently in Season 2) and wound it myself. It took a while to figure out the right rhythm, but I finally have a center-pull ball that I’m proud of. I started working on a pair of Jaywalkers because I’ve knit a lot of Monkey socks and I really like the Jaywalkers I got from Sockapalooza.
This is Socks That Rock Lightweight in Turquoise, US1 needles, and the Jaywalker pattern. I can’t wait to see how they turn out! It’s my first Socks That Rock and so far I like it. I have one other skein, of Silkie STR, also from v-day. It makes me so happy to finally be able to knit it!
