Although I was very lazy all weekend and did little knitting Friday night or Saturday, I did get a “second wind” on Sunday afternoon and got in some good knitting time while watching movies. so the second Halcyon sock is coming along nicely.
In fact, all that’s left is the ribbing.
In a fit of efficiency never to be reached again, I’ve already written up the pattern and it is available as a pdf, here.
The pattern stitch is very subtle, so you can use a striping or variegated yarn with good results.
Hey, who wants my leftovers?
As you may know, Wollmeise comes in 150-gram skeins. I have two balls leftover that weigh about 30 grams each, so about 60 grams total. Enough for a child’s pair of socks, right?
If you’d like me to send you my leftovers, leave a comment to this entry and I’ll choose one at random and send that person the leftover Wollmeise. One comment per person, please. I’ll pick a winner tomorrow (Tuesday) afternoon.
So I am of course thinking about what’s next. I’ve worked up a couple of designs from which to choose.
Speaking of sock designs, did you know that Aire River has a couple of new versions of their knitting symbol font available? It adds a couple new symbol choices for k2tog and ssk. There is a version 1.04 for the PC and, far more exciting, a version 2.0 for the Mac! I could not get the previous version (1.03) to display properly on the Mac, so I’m pretty excited about this. Thank you, Aire River!
Lucy is once again in hen-on-a-nest position.
The picture of contentment.
