Out with the old, In with the new

Out with the Nov socks of the month.

By the time they got to a length that I could try them on I found out that the slip stitch rib had eaten up all elasticity in the leg and I couldn’t even get it over my heel/ankle even though it measured out to the right size. Oh well, I wanted to knit them 2 at once magic loop method anyways so now I can! Blessing in disguise.

In with Claudia Handpainted sock yarn fingering weight in color Walk in the Woods on size 2 circular needles. Using the slip stitch rib only this time, they are moving along quite nicely. Now that makes me feel accomplished.

I have been considering casting on for something else. It’s a large project, a bit of a repeat for me but I think well worth the repetition. Worsted weight Feather & Fan ‘shawl’ which would really end up being a huge blanket. But who can pass that up?? I love circular blankets and I don’t need a replica of a shawl I already have so why not do it in worsted weight? I loved the pattern, I loved working on it even though it took hours per row at the end. If I have yarn on hand I might just cast on. hmmmm….we’ll just have to see what I can come up with. I do have 13 hanks of aqua/green/white crack yarn that I could use.

That is too good to pass up. It shall be done.
