stuart is into socktoberfest
i have almost completed my "obligation" in regards to socktoberfest. i made a deal with a friend that i would knit mates to three of my orphans. the kaffe ones were first, and i've made a respectable dent with two more. the trekking sock (left) saw lots of action at the movies last friday, and a good couple of inches of foot on sunday. but, it's hard to work on the same thing for too long, so i cast on for a monkey-mate and am cruising rather steadily on a mere 64 stitches.
and, i created a new orphan ....
green socken above is knitted with panda wool. i like the sock and i love the pattern. i'm not crazy about using this yarn for socks, as it feels much like cotton when knitting. i do love the fabric and the slight variation of green tones. i was also a bit concerned if i would have enough to get me through the toe, but there's plenty to spare.
now ... the question is, how long will the green socken remain an orphan?
