I was able to finish my first sock for the Six Sox knitalong, yeah! The previous pair I started, Scales Socks are languishing, 3/4's done and I don't know why. These "Horcrux Socks" just wanted to be made though, so here they are.
And I just completed my April-theme Socktopia socks this morning. These are an "April Showers" entry. I did some mods to the "Rainy Day Socks" pattern from MagKnits for these. The pattern was originally written for dk yarn, but I had to use my Natural Dye Studio merino / alpaca - it is such gorgeous yarn and it is between a fingering and a sport. Really happy with the results.
I have a little Yarn Pr0n for this week... To the left is my latest Pick Up Sticks package. Two new skeins of "Duets" sock yarn - I believe this officially puts me into Duets 'Ho status. And I decided on Louet Gems for my "Canada" sock for the Knitting On The Road knitalong. And I got some lovely freebies with this order - I'm really excited to try the Soak.
And on the right... my first packet from the Zen String Sock Yarn club. This is Bambewe sock yarn in a club colourway with contrast for toes & heels or entrelac or whatever! I couldn't wait to get started on this, so no skein pictures. These will likely be turned into Cookie A's "Monkey Socks". I can't believe I haven't knit with any bamboo yarns yet, but I'm really excited to see how it goes.
I have some sweaters on the go, I knit them all year long, yes, really, but no significant progress on anything just yet. Hopefully soon. Need to get a Project Spectrum knit underway - pink, yellow and green are usually among my favourites, better go check the stash.
Take care all, Karin
