I'm still recovering from Sock Camp, so instead of folding my laundry I worked on my second Cedar Creeks sock instead. But at least the laundry's been washed & dried.
Cedar Creeks KAL
yarn: Socks that Rock lightweight in Braun's Woods
needles: Knit Picks - metal dpns in 2.25 mm (picot cuff) & 2.50 mm (most of the sock) and 2.75 mm circ (heel flap)
64 st for the foot
less pointy toe
Love, love, love how the Braun's Woods knit up in this pattern. Love how it feels on the feet too once I used the correct size needles for the socks to fit my feet.
Now on to my other WIP's including a couple from Sock Camp. Gotta finish that second baby Coriolis sock from Cat Bordhi's Insouciant Socks class. I'll have to re-do the bind-off on the first sock with the EZ sewn bind off though. I was playing around with the bind off I had used for my stole (the k2tog, place back on left needle, k2tog, etc), but I think it's too tight.
I don't know who this pair will be for since Monkey1's teacher will be having a girl, not a boy, and I feel she's a bit too traditional to go blue for a girl.
And my "mindless" knitting from Tina's & Stephanie's class:
This first half is done on size 1 (2.50 mm) KP Harmony dpns and the second half will be on size 0 (2.00 mm) KP metal dpns. To be more correct, I should be using the size 0 Harmony dpns, but that small diameter in wood with medium weight STR and my death grip makes for a snapped dpn waiting to happen.
Tina dyed 5 colorways for this class:
- white/teal (halves)
- white/teal/wisteria (thirds)
- white/teal/wisteria/shamrock (etc)
- white/teal/wisteria/shamrock/baby blue
- caramel/teal/wisteria/shamrock/baby blue
When done, this scarf will be a great visual lesson on how gauge/needle size will affect color pooling in STR yarn w/differing number of colors. (Hint - pooling is not Tina's fault.)
