I really was hoping for a rainy long weekend so I can finish up my socks for Tour De Sock that starts on June 1. Instead, it stayed dry (though not sunny), so I worked on my deck plants and my garden. Today, I went shopping for food and went to the Apple Store to buy AppleCare for my new phone. I did knit a little while watching the movie, The Impossible - really good - sad, but good.
OK - since I last posted, I have finished two socks - not a pair! The first one is the Asymmetrical Socks.
I just finished the gusset of the left sock so the cables are moving towards another when worn as a pair. I'll show you when I finished.
I also finished the Solfar socks.. Unfortunately, I forgot to take a photo of it by itself. So here it is with the Asymmetrical Sock:
Clue 4 of the SKA Mystery Socks was released. I finished one of the socks and am working the gusset of the second sock:
I used Handwerks Sock Plus 8, which I understand it to be discontinued. I sure love this base. It's not as soft as my MCN, but it shows stitch definition very nicely.
And, I helped instigate the Monkey Madness over at SKA. So if you haven't knitted Monkey socks before and want to know what the fuss is all about, why not join us? I was surprised to find many people like me, finding this a fun pattern to knit. This is Monkey sock # 9 (yes! I've finished knitting 8 PAIRS of Monkey socks!). Using another new yarn (Zen Garden Serenity 20. I've used Serenity before, but this is a little thinner).
And now, I have to go find some suitable yarn for Tour de Socks. I need 400 yards of fingering weight yarn and 50 size 6 seed beads! Should have those in my stash!
Enjoy your Memorial Day weekend (what's left of it)...
