Its been more than a week since I posted ... not much going on her (I have had a bad cold and 2 really hectic weeks at work, so not much time/energy to knit). I did sign up for the 52 Pair Plunge, and had fallen behind (and I am only midway through week 2 -- not a really encouraging sign!), so I spent some time on the weekend knitting, and made a quick pair of toddler socks . The red socks are made of Tresco Garn, leftovers from the first pair of socks I ever knit (5 years ago!), and I am not sure who they'll be for. They are pretty scratchy and rough, hopefully they soften up a bit when I wash them (too scratchy for a child!) -- they may just be a decoration to hang on a shelf!
The other pair are my Austerman Step socks -- I am so happy to be done them (finally) ... I love the colours and am so happy they ended up being mine. I am calling them my "Whiskys" after the colour name. They are just a simple ribbed cuff, stocking stitch sock with a short row heel. I finished them on Sunday night, but didn't take a picture of them until just now ... lazy/busy!
I signed up for Sockapalooza ... glad to see I am not alone! LOL!~ over 700 so far! WOW! that is a lot of warm feet!
