I was able to finish this pair of big black socks for my oldest son. This is the 3rd pair I've made. Simple 2 X 2 rib down the leg.
So I felt I deserved a reward for this finish and contemplated casting on one of these new beauties I picked up on Wednesday at Knit On in Newport, Ky.
I've never knitted with the Fame Trend on the left or the Jarbo on the right but I did go to Ravelry and check out what others have made with them and they both look great. I'm thinking a shawl with the Fame Trends and socks with the Jarbo. That Opal in the middle will be a pair of lacy or patterned socks and the yellow at the bottom is from jwrayco and may grow up to be socks or a shawl. I haven't decided. I just looked at the tag on this skein and realized it was dyed in Nevada, MO... isn't that the town Judy L used to live in? Its a small world.
But then I remembered I have several socks without mates languishing in my WIP basket and instead I cast on the 2nd sock for this pair.
This is Lorna's Laces colorway In the Wind and it a plain vanilla stockinette sock - mindless knitting which sounds very relaxing. And in a week or so this should become a great new pair of socks.
Well I have lots of plans for my weekend. I want to finish those Big Stars for Nick and I want to get the binding on my Christmas quilt so I can take it to the guild meeting Monday night. Hope that you and I both have happy, productive weekends!
