Happy to report a few knitterly accomplishments today.
I completed four rows on Moonlight Sonata. I've decided that I'm death to KAL's. Maybe that judgement is precipitous, but it seems that whenever I get in on a KAL, it dies a sudden and completely insignificant death. Not that I'm bitter.
Once you get past the first two repeats of the moon motif, the shawl becomes a much more enjoyable knit. I can now "see" what I'm doing. The pattern makes sense, and I am much less likely to make glaring mistakes. I might even have to make a sunshiny one in yellows when I'm done with Moonlight.
Today, I also finished the toe on Doug's Shoreline Trail sock #1 (sock on right).
Vital Statistics: Men's size-12 sock: Leg is 8" to beginning of heel flap; foot is approx. 11" long.
Worsted weight yarn (basic merino): I used 64grams for sock #1.
Cast-on 48st. on 3.75mm needles
Today, I finished knitting the foot and toe of my Forest Camo Tresko sock #1 (sock in middle).
Vital Statistics: Women's size-8 sock: Leg is 5" to heel flap; foot is 9" long.
Tresko Worsted Sock Yarn: I used 48grams for sock #1.
Cast-on 40st. on 4mm needles.
I've posted the sock on the left before, but here it sits waiting for its partner.
Vital Statistics: Women's size-8 sock: Leg is 8: to beginning of heel flap; foot is 9" long.
Worsted weight yarn: Basic Peruvian Wool in Twilight colorway: I used 46grams for sock#1.
Cast-on 40st on 3.75 needles.
The bright yellow ball is Butterscotch DK waiting to be cast on for sock #1 of yet another pair. Interloper. See the disturbing trend that is developing? Where are the dance partners for all these singleton socks??
And finally...the item under the blue bowl is a teeny bit of gift knitting I completed between yesterday and today. Ready to mail off on Monday.
