Classic Sock from Nancy Bush’s Folk Socks. 48 stitch sock on size 0/2.0mm needles. Regia Kaffe Fassett design line, colour 4261, lot 23639, maybe Caribbean.
I don’t like to match the stripes. I start the second sock whenever I finish the first. This time, I wanted to see the stripes at the heel flap and gusset on the leg, as they’ve turned out.
I’d like to work on something for me. A couple weeks ago (already!) I ripped out 4 or 5 inches of Unst sock (Knitting on the Road, Nancy Bush) in lovely chocolate Shepherd Sock (Lorna’s Laces) because it was too tight.
I bought another ball of Noro Kureyon Sock in purples and greens (as far as I can tell) because I was yelled at in Korean. I thought about a solid colour lace yarn for a more complicated pattern, but then I realized that I can’t manage knitting much in the way of lace these days, weeks, months. Tired brain. So I bought the extravagant colours of Noro to make something simple but spectacular. (I hope.)
I hear Nature’s Palette has a new lace weight line. I want some (gimme gimme gimme). I love the Nature’s Palette colours. I need more lace yarn to dream about knitting.
And I want to make myself some more socks. Maybe with a simple diamond eyelet pattern. That fit the first time around, because I don’t feel like thinking so much.
But first! Finish this sock. I’m sure I’ve finished the rabbit by the time this posts, but the kid wants a rabbit for himself (made from a swatch square!). And I need to move the orange sweater along a bit. And then there’s the robot. And my brother’s mittens (hahahaha) (I must finish them this year).
