Halfway through our vacation and we've got:
- one pre-trip orthodontic emergency
- one major knee abrasion
- one horse fly bite (Ow! Foolish me wearing capris & not jeans)
- multiple mosquito bites
- and two pairs of socks done:
Cotty socks by lovely Irishgirlieknits
Pigeonroof Studios SIREN TWO sport (superwash merino/cashmere/nylon) in Orchida
size 3.00 & 3.25 mm KP dpns
Love this quick easy pattern which is available in fingering & sport weight yarn. Love the feel of the yarn, but surprised that the the spreckled colorway was way too busy even for the Cotty pattern. Maybe the lace portion will look better after the socks are blocked.
I'll probably knit this pattern again in STR since we're having a Cotty and Dippers KAL on the Socks that Rawk Rav group.
Cat Bordhi's new sock architecture
Socks that Rock lightweight Rare Gems - a My Blue Heaven off-shoot over-dyed with black
size 2.25 & 2.50 mm KP circs
Leg pattern is Crest of the Wave using the chart from Charlene Schurch's More Sensational Knitted Socks. Since the Rare Gem colorway reminded me of the tonal & shade changes of the Pacific Ocean from the shoreline to the horizon, I thought the Crest of the Wave pattern fitting.
I think that'll be it for the vacation FO's. The rest of my WIP's (Ulmus II, Monkey1's tiered skirt, Digitessa sock 1 (still!), and Fraggle Squiggle) aren't far enough along that I'll get any completed by the end of the week. That and I'm boucing between all of them so no one project is getting my focused attention.
