I finished my Knit Picky Socks last night! They went pretty quickly and I'm very happy with them. The colors are not something I would pick out on my own, but I really like it - very cheerful! I love the way the yarn worked up - no pooling or flashing, just a very nice variegation. (Great job, Laura!)The socks fit well - I'm finally getting to where my socks fit, and aren't too tight. In fact, I probably could've made these a teeny bit tighter, but I think they'll be good. I had a little yarn left and I made a sock for my keyring sock blocker while watching the British/original version of The Office last night.
Pattern: My own, sort of cobbled together from other patterns
Needles: size 2 bamboo dpns
Yarn: FootPrints by The Painted Sheep - Knit Picky Colorway :)
Time: just over a week
This morning I cast on for a new sock in Trekking XXL. I'm trying to keep socks on the needles at all times to keep up steam for Summer of Socks - and to pare down my stash a little. My last socks looked like rainbow sherbet, and these look like Neapolitan Ice Cream...yum! I'm using my Chrystal Palace dpns for the first time, and I really like them.
I'm moving along on the Ogee Lace Skirt as well. No new pictures, but I'm about halfway done with the body of the skirt. It's a really fun knit, but I'm enjoying having a simple stockinette sock that requires little thinking and no eye-crossing charts.
