sock update … yes, i'm surprised too!

my favorite color use to be green. as of lately, i decided my new favorite color is navy blue.

but, i want to knit socks for marco, for when he visits in the winter. and i found a nice green yarn (from stash) for him (green, HIS favorite color) … though he assures me that he will wear any color(s) i knit.


today, while out doing laundry, i cast on this pattern (Haring hit Maassluis), it is free. 

it will be a good knit … all texture, in a gansey style. because of all the knits and purls, i'm trying to hold my yarn in my left hand. 

it is awkward. and i wonder if it would be easier with dpns instead of magic loop. BUT, the stitches are made faster. the slow part comes from switching from one needle to the other.

GASP! You cast on a new pair instead of finishing!
