With the recent high points of my life being my ' Aunt Of The Bride' sewing project and the New Orleans wedding, the blog has boasted few, recent knitting posts. But there was some knitting.
On the drive to the airport, I finished a very long-overdue, second sock. Sock number one was knit in the spring of 2010 for the Need A Sock? book. Creating the book meant a marathon of sock knitting. When it finally went to the printers, the sock yarn and needles took to hibernation. But there are more than a few single socks waiting for mates.
This pair I kept in the glove compartment of the car knitting on them when I was a passenger on long drives. Heading to the Detroit airport for the flight to New Orleans was a long enough drive to get the pair finished. Yahoo!
This pair of mottled purple and green
Patons Kroy Stretch yarn.
The pattern is a variation of the basic pattern from the Need A Sock? book. Sporting 2 x 2 ribbing for the entire five inch cuff, they become 'Bobby Socks' when the cuff is turned over.
These socks, meant for me, are my de-rigeur size. 64 stitches on 2.25 mm needles with, when measured from the completion of the gusset decreases to the beginning of the toe decreases, a six inch foot.
