So I did it! I got the sock done in time!
With one day to spare for blocking and photographing.
Crazy how much knitting you can get done if you knit every single time you nurse for a few days. I just have to stick to socks b/c anything bigger than that gets in her way.
So the details… The pattern is the Sunshine Sock (rav link) by Cookie A from the new book Sock Innovations. Quite simply I love her designs. They are so well thought out. The ribbing flows into the pattern which flows into the heel seamlessly.
I knit them on size 1.5 bamboo needles - seems to be the perfect gauge for this yarn.
Oh the yarn. It’s Destination Yarn in the colorway “Tampa” Aside from the whole Florida/Sunshine connection (LOVE that) I wanted to knit something summery and this seemed to fit the bill.
Of course I’m biased since I’m the dyer… but… honestly? Blues and turquoises aren’t really my thing. I’m more of a pinks/reds kindof girl. But I had the yarn so I figured what the hell. Worst case they become a Christmas gift for someone more into Blue than me:
Uh huh. That’s not going to happen. I LOVE them. They are mine. All mine.
Tomorrow is July and I have big, BIG fiber-y things planned for July including a whole new series of colorways based on a whole new concept in travel yarn. It’s pretty neat. Plus I’m going to continue the Sock Innovation Knit Along thing by knitting Rick:Pic from the book
