New SockI finished the Fire Socks last night- well, except (of course) for the ends. Considering that the yarn turned my fingers red as I knit with it, I have to wash these socks (maybe a couple of times) before I wear them, unless I want red feet! They look good, though, and I'm looking forward to wearing them. Of course, now that the temperatures are getting into the 80s, I don't really want to wear socks at all... isn't that always the way!
I also cast on for my next pair- regia jacquard with woolease sport toes and heels- partly to save some "fancy" yarn for another pair, and partly because I really like the look of the contrast toe and heel- looks so cute!! I'm expecting to have to frog this project, though, since the start of the sock is also my gauge swatch, and I'm not sure what the regia will do in comparison with the woolease sport. I'm also knitting them for my friend with feet that are LARGER than mine- 9 or 9.5 I think, and wider, so I'm trying to guestimate the size. I guess I need to get her to measure her feet next time I see her (possibly tonight). She'll think I'm nuts, but then her socks will fit! Perhaps I'll be lucky and won't need to frog after all... but we'll see.
Yesterday was glorious. Amazing temperatures- my friend and I went for a nice long walk/hike through Great Falls, MD. The falls were spectacular due to the good amounts of rain lately, and the weather was perfect. Such a lovely treat! Consequently, though, I didn't get much of anything done knitting-wise... I finished the Fire Sock, and started the next sock, but no progress on the vest. Ah, well... perhaps tonight- hope springs eternal! :)
