The orange Trekking socks are done (finished at work this afternoon). Stats: Crosshatch Lace pattern from More SKS, 72 stitches on leg on size US0 dpn's, 68 stitches on foot on size US1 dpn's. Oh so pretty and they fit great. Here they are just hanging out in the azalea (and a few thistle).
Deb offered up a challenge yesterday after reading Carole's blog. Kind of a "flash your sock yarn stash" thing. How many pair of socks would you be able to knit from your current stash. I too, am no match for Carole's 80 pair, but I did beat out Deb. As of last night, I could knit42 pair of socks. 2 balls didn't make it into that shot...my ball of STR and Bearfoot. This count does not include the 6 pair I have OTN. I just did some calculating and it seems I have just enough to finish the 52 Pair Plunge (that doesn't mean that I won't be buying more when the budget allows, ;) if you know what I mean). So conduct your own "spring sock yarn inventory" and let us know "what condition your condition is in".
In sock knitting news...the orange Trekking socks are nearing completion (just a few more inches) and the second Opal Magic (turquiose) sock has been started and the leg is almost done. I will post pics of those upon completion. Have a great Thursday. More later!
