... yes i am. i am slack on posting, but not so much in the knitting. i have finished my june socks for ska. i did not start any july socks, as i'm getting "ready" for august (where i will finish as many pairs as possible).

of course, in order to finish so many pairs, i started another pair! however, i will post those later.

this pattern fell in the "under appreciated" catagory. it's called maylin. i ordered the yarn from a fellow raveler in germany. her etsy shop is here.

ska socks july 018

what i enjoyed about this pattern is the lace is on the front of the sock, with ribbing on the back. it kinda reminds me a bit of some of the patterns from nancy bush. also, for the first time in a long time, i knitted on size 0 needles. i know it doesn't sound like there's much of a difference between a 0 and a 1, but that .25mm is a HUGE difference. the knitting felt exceptionally slow.
