There’s a New Sock in Town
The booby socks just weren’t working out. They would have been too big for me, ending up pretty slouchy and they were-well-lumpy. I think my gauge when purling is a little uneven, which probably caused the lumpiness. Luckily, I didn’t stay in denial for too long. I ripped them out after turning the heel and will use the yarn for something else.
Never one to go without a sock on the needles, I quickly cast on for another. I’m sorry that the photo is so blurry. Believe it or not, this is the best one that I could get. Hopefully I’ll be able to get a better shot in some natural light.
I must be the last knitter in the world to cast on for a pair of Cookie A‘s Pomatomus Socks. This pattern didn’t really jump out at me the first time I saw it, but I think it really works well with my new Happy Feet yarn. Like I mentioned a while back, I’m hoping to have these done in time for my tap performances. My other semi-mindless projects are all at a point where they are too big to schlep along with me to class, so this will be my number one travelling project. Finishing the pair in a couple of weeks should be no problem at all. Since they should be completed before the end of the month, I also hope to use them for the ‘April Showers’ theme in Socktopia.
In non-knitting news, my Dear Fiance now has his own radio show! Last night was his first go at it and I think it went really well. The little board towards the front of the picture is a toy that he ‘needed’ to make the show better. If you’re awake on monday nights/tuesday mornings from 1-3 Central, check out their show online. I’ll also be in the studio, but you probably won’t hear me. Unless, of course, the microphones pick up the clicking of my needles!
