We are in the middle of a long weekend in the U.S. — that is, those of us who get Monday off from work for Columbus Day.
I’ve been productive. I finished my sweater.
And started some socks. Teddy very handsomely offered to model.
This is Opal 6-ply (sport/dk weight) from the “Best of Rainforest” series. It’s the Demian colorway, and I made some very good progress as you can see here.
These are very large socks, destined to be a holiday gift for someone with very large feet. That’s one of the things I love about Opal 6-ply — very high yardage so there’s plenty when you need to knit socks for big giant clown feet and be able to match the striping sequence.
A couple of you asked about the hat in my last blog post. It was published in Knitscene earlier this year. The Ravelry link is here.
Okay, I need to get back to my edits/re-writes. And Miss Lucy is busy as well. She is in full holiday-weekend mode.
