After making those Not So Ugly Socks, I picked these up. I started them 5 or 6 years ago! Whenever it was the Regia was wowing us with the new and exciting self-striping yarn. These colors are all my Mom's favorites, and I even remember starting these as a present for her (maybe for Mother's Day?). But I never finished. I moved away from the whole self-striping thing for a bit. But making that last pair of plain old socks reminded me that plain old socks are perfect for movies, doctors offices, and sometimes, even bad traffic! These are 62 stitch socks on size 1 needles, with a heel flap. Mom will love them.
Also in the knitting bag is my February Ladies Sweater - which I'm loving. I was freaking for a bit that I wouldn't have enough yarn - but now I think I'll be OK. I have about 8 inches of lace to go:
But, I also wanted to get another sock on the needles. I'm going the the Lowell Spinners for a Stitch and Pitch on Monday night! So I needed something small. I'm going to work on the lace top for the Summer of Love Lace socks (from last year's RSC):
I loved this yarn when it arrived, just never got around to knitting it. I just want to get the cuff done this weekend, so I have the easy stockinette part for the baseball game!
OK - I'm ready for a little vacation! Let's go! (Guess I have to wait for the work day to be over first. Sigh)
