Another pair of socks knitted. Yep, it's another completed project every day here at Still My Life, With Knitting. These are the Cotton Socks. Pattern coming Tomorrow! (Or thereabouts) But here are the highlights. Yarn, 8/2 cotton (unmercerized) held double -- two colors here, grey and black. Size 1 needles. Notice the toes on these -- much better, IMHO, than the blocky grafted toes on the Jaywalkers from yesterday. And the ribbing, a good way to make a nice comfortable, stretchy sock from an inelastic yarn. I'm going to wash these up over the weekend, we'll see what a trip through the washer and dryer does for them.
I'm excited for Knitting Knite tomorrow. Hopefully Heather will be able to make it. We haven't seen her in weeks. Something about not wanting to leave the kids home alone. Whatever. They were sleeping anyways. (Personally, I would have just brought my kids and made them sleep at B&N. But that's just me. My kids were the ones trying to lie down and sleep on a sidewalk in London.) I know CQ will be there, because I'm driving her. And Carly says she's coming with her new knitting friend, and hopefully we'll see Zeepo and his wife, so we should have a good crowd. Knitting, conversation, a good excuse not to be working...what more could you ask for? I know, coffee, but they have that over in the cafe.
