Talk about immediate gratification.
This sock is knit from Dream in Color Classy — a worsted weight yarn. It’s the one I swatched up a few days ago to see if I could get my usual sportweight gauge from it. Well, I could, and I did. I used a 2.75mm needle. Oh, and the colorway is “Happy Forest.” Love that name!
I’m calling these socks “Van Dyke Lace Socks” — not terribly original, but the pattern is a simple Van Dyke lace repeated over the body of the sock.
I split my 4 ounce skein of yarn into two equal balls. The total yardage of the skein was 250, so this sock is made from 125 yards.
Three grams leftover on the first sock:
I toddled into work today, and I’ll be going to work tomorrow, so progress on the second sock will be much slower. But I have Friday off for a medical appointment, and then all next week off.
Roseann asked me if there is any spinning in my future. I’d love to finish up what’s been sitting on my wheel for longer than I care to remember.
(Please note little Ragdoll feet in the photo.)
This is a Crown Mountain Farms Sock Hop roving. I’ve spun up most of it — here’s the first half, plied into sock yarn. Sorry for the over-exposed pic — it’s much greener in person.
It’s been so long that I can’t remember the name of the colorway. (Hangs head in shame.)
Maybe I should set myself this as a task — freaking finish spinning my Sock Hop roving already!
My other plans for next week? Prepare a Thanksgiving feast for the KOARC, Lucy, and me.
It’ll likely take me all week. That’s my story, anyhow. And if the doctor tells me that I’m still on restriction for how much I can lift, the KOARC will be putting the turkey in the oven!
