So last week I finished up this pair of almost day-glow socks and this week...
I'm working on the antithesis of that pair.... large dark taupe socks for my son. (Insert big sigh.)
Now I will say these are knitting up quickly. I'm using size 3 needles and the yarn is Knitpicks Stroll. The color is Basalt Heather. You can see it here. It feels nice and squishy and it is machine wash/tumble dry low. And I find happiness in that they aren't black. Taupe is a nice change of pace. I've ordered more of this yarn in Navy and Dark Gray. Those colors and the black encompass all of the colors of suits the boy owns so he should be looking good.
These aren't the most exciting socks to knit but my son really loves the way they fit and feel and that makes it all worthwhile. My reward for finishing these socks is to work on a pair for me. I have several single socks that are waiting for a mate and one of these will get lucky (ewww.... that didn't sound right - LOL).
Do you have plans for the upcoming 3 day weekend? I'm hoping to get some sewing done and I want to work on organizing my stash of beads and jewelry making supplies. I bought a new storage box and hope to sort, organize and contain it.
Here's hoping you get to do fun things with your holiday!
