Note of warning – no photography class can make taking pictures of your own feet easy. I think you’d have to be a contortionist to get it right, so we’ll just have to make do with what I have.
The red Serpentine socks (pattern by Wendy Johnson, Rav link) are finished:
I do love this pattern – these are the second socks I’ve knit using it. I have to say that my heels are getting better and better too:
This time, however, I did reinforce the heels with reinforcing thread. We’ll see if they blow out as quickly once it gets warmer and I start wearing them.
So of course, now that a project is finished, I had to start some other projects right? Nodding is appropriate here. My guy was working late, so I went into my lovely craft room and dug around in the projects that are bagged up and the patterns I have stacked up and the yarn that is stashed and chose a few.
I’m going to learn arch shaping with these socks!
Next, I discovered I had one skein (shame on me, breaks the rules) of this Caper sock yarn from String Theory yarns. I cannot say enough good things about this yarn. It’s simply a pleasure to work with – doesn’t split, feels amazing in your hands as you knit, and such lovely color depth! So, I’ve been wanting to knit another cowl, and I don’t have one to go with my blue jackets. I chose the Silk Fountain Hood by Beth Hood in the Luxury Yarn One Skein Wonders book.
This will be lovely with my jean jacket in the Fall.
Of course, because I had this skein leftover from my wavy scarf in not-quite-the-same-color, I need to knit up some almost-matching fingerless gloves. I chose the pattern called Knotty because I’ve never knit a cabled pattern this intense and it’s always nice to start out small.
Whew! Now, I also need to start on the rest of my Sock Summit homework, so I think it will be a busy weekend!
