Last week I went to Madrona. which gave me a great opportunity to stock up on some Goth Socks and get quite a bit of knitting done!
First I worked on the socks that my mom abandoned, mentioned a couple posts before this one. Although my mom gave them back to me because she didn’t like the color, I got tons of compliments while wandering around Madrona and knitting them. And it wasn’t long before they were finished!
Yarn: Four Seasons Gründl Hot Socks, color 933
Started: ? Fall 2008
Then I pulled out another longstanding WIP, my Herbivore. After checking the pattern to see where I had left off, I realized that I only had a few more rows to knit if I wanted it to be the length specified in the pattern. Because I had quite a bit of yarn left, I did a few extra repeats.
Pattern: Herbivore by Stephen West
Yarn: Tosh Merino Light in Baltic
Coincidentally I finished it exactly one year after I started. I bought the yarn last year either from the Fiber Gallery Madrona booth, or immediately after coming home.
I also made quite a bit of progress on some plain socks from yarn I dyed in Stephania’s class in December:
