I finished the Trekking 107 socks tonight. My usual Plain Jane socks; 68 stitches on US1 dpn's. Love them, can't wait to wear them. I like the
first sock (the one on top) better than the second...that's always the case with Trekking for me (I like one more than the other).
I've made a pair of Fetchings for Mandy (yeah, I know, I'm the last knitter on earth to knit these). I knit them in Knit Picks Wool of the Andes (my Sockret Pal gave me 2 skeins of this so I will be knitting a pair for myself too). Mandy is being picky...she thinks they need the thumbs. Whatever....
And here is the latest pair to jump OTNs. Meilenweit Fantasy. 68 stitches, US1, 1x1 cuff, 3x1 leg and foot (when I get there). It's very happy yarn.
Jane is having a contest (yarn prizes are involved, so you know I'm going to play), show the first pair of socks you ever knit and the latest. Well my latest are at the top of the post, so now for my first...Opal Lollipop. My cast on has gotten so much better and looser (I don't knit tourniquets anymore).
And these two have gone to the frog pond. The orange sock wouldn't go over my heel...so "if" I restart them, they will have 77 stitches instead of 66. The other sock I started in Monica's Dancing Tulips pattern (her patterns will be available soon at The Loopy Ewe) in some Perchance to Knit yarn. Love the pattern, love the yarn... just not together. I will find the perfect match for each down the road.
That's it for now. More later!
