Thursday’s Needles

The socks are coming along. I’m on the homestretch now and have one repeat to left to do before a few rounds of stockinette and then the toe decrease. I DO love this yarn and I do love the pattern so much, it’s just been very challenging to work on.

Also, a Sock Yarn Blanket update. 🙂 It’s starting to take shape but obviously has a way to go. I’m definitely not wide enough yet, though I’m undecided how much wider I want to go. Definitely about half again as wide, so I can curl up with it on the couch.

And you know, for someone that doesn’t generally like pink, I have a lot of it. LOL

Socks on my needles today

I ALWAYS have a pair of socks on the needles. Right now, it’s these and I’m very anxious for them to be done. For one, there’s always the wonderful feeling of a new pair of socks. But also, the yarn is a very dark cinnamon color and I just have horrible eyesight, so it’s been a challenge knitting with a darker yarn.

The yarn is Knit Picks Stroll Merlot Heather and has been just wonderful to work with. The pattern is Robin Lynn’s My Cup of Tea. The pattern is great and does go by quickly and they fit so well! 🙂

Not sure what the next sock will be, something springy, of course! 🙂
