I participated in Summer of Socks this year, and my goal was to finish WIPs. Well, SOS ended at the beginning of September, but since I was under the impression that it would go until the end of summer, I decided I would work on sock WIPs through the end of the summer.
Yet another finished sock WIP – this one was from Labor Day Weekend, but did I blog it? Of course not!
Pattern: Kai Mei by Cookie A
Yarn: Dream In Color Smooshy in Go Go Grassy
I just noticed those were started Memorial Day weekend and finished Labor Day weekend. Go figure!
And a little detail of the stitch pattern:
This is a wacky stitch pattern. Not hard, but definitely different. It turns out beautifully, though!
I made some really good progress and finished some socks that had been languishing for a long time, along with a few new pairs. My goal is to finish my second Nebula sock before the end of Summer (which is September 22nd, for those of you wondering).
So far I have this:
I only have a few more repeats until the heel, and the foot honestly goes nearly twice as fast since the bottom is stockinette. Those little cable twists, while gorgeous, are very time-consuming. For some reason the spiraling isn’t showing up on the left sock. Hopefully it will when the sock is being worn.
My other sock WIPs include my second Leyburn – which I would try to finish if I could find it… I’m going to do a bit more searching tomorrow.
I also started a couple pairs of new stockinette socks to work on while watching movies or riding the bus:
The Candy Corn socks – these were supposed to be self-striping, but I think they’re cute even though they don’t stripe.
and my little sister’s birthday socks:
The yarn is Lisa Souza “Little Devil”, which I bought a few years ago with my sister in mind. It’s rough being a blue lover with family members that love red and black. 😉
