The Garden Path socks are done. I cast off the second one on the train this morning.
To recap, they are my own design (will be available for sale at The Loopy Ewe in the near future), knit from Dream in Color Smooshy sock in the “Spring Tickle” colorway on 2mm needles.
This makes 18 pairs and the Summer of Socks ends Friday at midnight. I’m betting I can crank out one more pair.
So those of you who guessed 19 pairs for the Summer of Socks may well be right. Those of you who guessed 18 pairs, no, I am not open to bribery.
I did indeed start a new sock, from Fiesta Boomerang (sportweight) in the White Zinfandel colorway.
Love this yarn and love this colorway. Love white zinfandel wine, too, for that matter.
Here’s the sock in progress:
I’m calling it “Hearts for Heidi.” It’s being knit on a 2.75mm needle. Take a look at the needle:
It’s one of the new Knitpix Harmony birch needles. I’m liking it very much!
I bought the circulars in 2mm and 2.75mm, because those are the sizes I use for socks (fingering and sportweight respectively). I do think I will be buying them in the Options set as well, because I’m very impressed with their performance.
And they’re pretty too.
Do you have a favorite sock pattern of all the ones you have created or perhaps one you found the most challenging to get the way you wanted it to look?
Good questions! I think my favorite design is the L-Bee Socks. The one I fiddled with the most was the Asparagus Cables.
Don’t forget — my 2008 Calendar, available in my Cafepress store, would make a lovely holiday gift. And I’m donating the $1 I make on each calendar to an animal charity! The link to the store is also in the sidebar, right under my picture!
