Well, yesterday completely slipped me by!
If you’ve been reading along here for awhile, you’ll know that the first Thursday of the month is sock time! I didn’t realize until late yesterday that it had already come around again (I blame my cold!)
This morning, as I sipped my coffee and knit, as is my wont, I was thinking what a shame it was that I hadn’t done any sock knitting all month, and that I’d have to miss this month’s update … all the while I was knitting on a sock! Doh!
Granted, the socks aren’t for me — I was thinking of my languishing Antirrhinum socks, which I haven’t touched since last month. But, after finishing up the little baby poncho I was working on in Tosh DK, I decided to make some little socks to match. I chose the Babyccino Socks, and I’ve really enjoyed them. They are tiny so, of course, fly off the needles — I knit the first one in an evening.
I love the texture stitch, and they also feature a short row heel, worked differently than I have done before, so that’s been a nice learning experience.
I’m using the same Tosh DK in Ginger, paired with some Malachite (both very old yarns!) I just need to finishing turning the heel and knit the little leg, and off these will go to Canada!
And the pattern actually goes up to adult sizes — with the lovely texture and being out of DK yarn, I think these would make some super scrummy house socks!
Linking up with my fellow Thursday sock knitters — Paula at Spin A Yarn has finished a gorgeous pair of Hermione Socks, Stefanie at Wooly Cakes and Wooden Spoons has a really cool pair of completely afterthought socks on the go, and go see with Kat at Felinity Knits is up to as well! If you’d like to join up, we write about socks on the first Thursday of the month!
Also, wanted to say thank you so much to all of you for your lovely well wishes and comments to the news I shared earlier this week! Being sick has put me behind on everything, but your comments were so kind, and I can’t wait to respond to each of you!
Ok, that’s it for me! Hope you have a great weekend planned!
