... That is what you get when you knit baby socks. I had enough left over Cherry Tree Hill in the Tide Pool colorway to knit up a pair of newborn socks. If only I had a wee one to model them. These will either be put aside for a baby shower or donated to the local Pegnancy Care Center. I knit a 1 x 1 rib under the cuff so they would be more likely to stay on. I sent a copy of the pattern to Cindy to try out, she has a new granddaughter, so she can give them a test run. I have a pair of sage green cable socks, (more boyish) in the works too.
Remember the "Navajo" Pagewood Farms, Glacier Bay 3 ply yarn, I shared last week from The Yarn Grove ... I wound it and started a pair of socks. It is a dream to knit with. Tightly spun, no splitting, and feels a lot like Jitterbug. My eldest is reluctantly modeling them for me, (she doesn't like the color). This one is a tad tight over my heel, but fits her perfect. So I am knitting the second one on a size bigger needle for the leg and then will frog this one and reknit it to fit my foot. I decided to see how it would knit up with a slightly thinner yarn too. So, I modified the stitch count a bit and cast on in the Woolly Boully Meanie "Neopolitan" color. The eldest does like these, but so do I, unfortunate for her. This yarn is so soft and is as light as air almost. It also has a nice tight spin. Notice that little bit of snow on the pine. The sun is shining now and you would never have imagined that this is what it looked like a few minutes ago That foggy look is snow coming down. It has been doing this all day, snow storms with near white out conditions, and then sunshine. Since it was 62 degrees here yesterday I don't imagine any of this will stick around, but the roads will be a frozen mess tomorrow since it is supposed to get rather cold tonight.
And of course blogger has not fixed the spell check yet, so again, my apologies.
Have a great week!!!
