My Summer of Socks
I have just finished my 4th pair of socks for July. And my 15th for the year (but who's counting? Oh, I am). These were fun to knit and look so cool. The colors in the yarn make me very happy. I can't wait for suitable weather to wear them. Here are the particulars:
Yarn: Sisu Fantasy
US 1 dpn's
Pattern: 3-1 Rib for the leg and down the foot.
My daughter is upset that they match perfectly. She actually threw them down on the couch when she saw how well the stripes match and said, "you and your matching socks".
WELL! Nothing to get your knickers in a bunch about. IMHO. They are exactly how I like them.
I think I will work on the socks I'm knitting for my sister now (and the stripes will match on those too, BTW). It's hard to concentrate on anything right now. Mandy and a friend (it's a sleepover, which means "no sleep") are upstairs baking chocolate chip cookies and they smell wonderful.
More knitting and sewing soon.
