Here are the completed River Run Socks.
The voting was close between River Run and Waterfall as the name for this pattern. As of this posting, they are just about neck and neck in the polls. But since a commenter pointed out that there is another sock pattern for sale out there that is called “Waterfall Socks,” I decided that River Run should be the chosen name.
Thanks to all of you who suggested names and to everyone who voted.
To recap, the socks are knit from Dream in Color Smooshy Sock Yarn in the “Deep Sea Flower” colorway on 2mm needles.
This is a very stretchy pattern, I have discovered. It would be great for someone with feet and ankles that swell during the day, as the sock can expand to accommodate changes.
So I started a new sock, just barely.
I broke out some of my Fiesta Boomerang.
This in the “Mochachino” colorway, and using a 2.75mm needle I’m getting 6.5 stitches to the inch. It’s a very interesting yarn — nice and springy, and very very soft. I’m very interested to see how it will look knitted into socks.
Thanks again for all the kind comments on the state of my health. I don’t want to turn this into a medical issues blog, so I really want to keep this type of discussion to a minimum. I’ve mentioned the issues I’m having to explain why I am not available to answer questions via email, and why at times my blog entries will be short. My issues have been diagnosed and I’m working to get some resolution. Nothing life-threatening, just extremely painful. Resolution is a long and arduous procedure due to the bizarre way my doctor’s office works. Or rather, does not work. It seems as though while the doctors and nurses there are often responsive and compassionate in their work, they simply haven’t figured out how to communicate with each other so that simple things that they are supposed to be doing get done within a reasonable time period. So I have to keep calling and calling and calling and leaving messages.
Maybe ten years from now I’ll look back on this and laugh. But I doubt it.
Lucy doesn’t think so either.
