Monica Said I Had To
Monica said I had to post, so I hurried up and finished the Meilenweit socks I was knitting. I was close to being done anyway. So....... here they are.
The particulars: Meilenweit Inca
68 stitches on size US1 dpn's.
I decided to let the yarn speak for itself. They are identical until the toe. Why is it always the toe? And after the toe was kitchnered but before I could weave in the ends, I went out and cut some sucker growth from one of the Bradford Pears in the front yard. Well, when I was gathering up the debris something stabbed me in my ring finger near the tip. Mandy pulled it out, but now my finger is red and swollen. I've taken some Benedryl and cleaned and spritzed the wound with some topical Benedryl... so hopefully everything will be alright.
New OTNs is Opal Petticoat. This pair will be for Mandy. I had started it in a 3 x 1 rib on the leg but she likes her socks plain so I ripped it and started over. I love the colors in this yarn... so happy and Springy/Summery. I have also started a pair for Monica (she knows about them) but the yarn and pattern will be a surprise. We will exchange socks in September (when we go to the Wool Gathering). So you will have to wait to see them till then, sorry.
Well, I'm going to see if I can knit. Typing hasn't been too bad. I really need to finish the Fishermen's Socks before the end of the month, we'll see if that happens.
