... A pair of socks. It seems like I knit so many socks that some of them have to make a pair. These have been my knit in the van, while waiting for the kids socks. These are a simple 5 x 2 rib, knit in STR Scottish Highlands. 56 stitches and size 2.75 mm dpns. I need to take another pair of mindless knitting socks out to the van now. Probably the Yarn Love socks.
I have been working on the sock I started last week. It is a little further along than pictured. I really like this yarn. It is ever so soft. Gypsyknits: Sock it 3 ply merino.
And, I started on another fingerless mitt design. These will be a gift for a friend of my eldest daughter. She goes to the "other" High School in town and their colors are orange and brown. So these will work great for her. They are knit in Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in orange of course. I don't know if that is the real name, I don't have the ball band anymore, but they are orange.
And look what I got in the mail yesterday from The Loopy Ewe , some Woolly Boully Meanie in the Neapolitan colorway. DD1 saw it, and the silly girl thought it was for her. She is so mistaken. She is trying to talk me into buying another hank, so we can have "matching" socks.... except she wants hers plain vanilla and wants me to put a design on mine. Matching????? I don't think so. Isn't it pretty, and I am not a pink person, but I like this.
Well that is all for today. Another crazy weather day here in south central IN. 70 and the windows are open. What is the weather like where you are?
