Thanks for your continued good wishes about the state of my health. I did have an appointment with a specialist on Thursday and had a procedure done then that has left me quite loopy for the past few days. Said procedure will be repeated in two weeks. In the meantime I’m fighting bouts of nausea and dizziness and inability to regulate my internal temperature. In short, I’m a mess.
So I shall be brief.
I finished the Cabletini socks. Ta-da!
To recap, these are knit from Natures Palette fingering weight wool in the Odd Duck #4 colorway on 2mm needles. The pattern is my own.
A new sock jumped on the needles. And of course Teddy stepped up to model the toe.
This is Stone Barn Fibers fingering weight wool and the colorway is “Ice Cream Sundae.” I purchased this from The Loopy Ewe. Yum! As usual, I’m using 2mm needles to knit it.
Once again, I’ve doodled up a pattern. Here is the sock at this moment:
And on the hoof:
The KOARC came up with a name for the pattern: Crotalus Socks. I think it’s perfect.
This is my first time knitting with this yarn and I like it very much. It reminds me of one of my favorite sock yarns — Claudia Handpainted. It’s soft with a good twist and is very pleasant to knit.
