I have been continuing with my 12 Socks in 12 Months challenge, though I have been very neglectful of posting my progress. My camera is broken (permanently, I think) so I’ve had to resort to using phone pics. I apologize for the photo quality.
My August socks were knit from Yarn Chef Minestrone (merino/nylon blend) in a lovely self striping colorway called Yucca. I used the Lace and Cable Socks [ravelry link] from Wendy Johnson’s Socks From the Toe Up book, and knitted them on two 2.0 mm circular needles. I omitted the eyelet pattern on the top of the foot and also did a short row heel instead of the one suggested in the pattern.
My September Socks [ravelry link] were a fun project. They were knitted from Ancient Threads‘ Sockittome, a merino/nylon blend dyed with logwood purple, cochineal, lac, and quebracho black. The pattern is one I improvised and I worked a delicate three stitch cable down the sides, although the cables are hard to see in this picture. Much of the knitting was done on the road between St. Louis and Indianapolis as I visited my expectant sister twice in September – once to help her move to her new house, and again for the baby shower. I’m looking forward to being an aunt again!
I’m still working on the toe of my second October sock and plan to finish it up today. More finished project pictures to come!
