Last Week Chez Play – Socks!

IMG_8807

I finally finished a pair of socks! Sprightly Socks has a very easy-to-memorize slipped stitch pattern which made KIPing easy. And I successfully turned my second Fish Lips Kiss Heel with only one holey gap while dragging this project to the bus stop everyday. They’re a little snug to get on and I wish I hadn’t gone down a needle size for the ribbing, but they fit! And they’re warm. The yarn is Darkwing Duck, dyed by Shameless Twist for the Tripping Yarn Balls Retro Toons club. I love how variegated yarn works with this pattern.

We enjoyed our last night at the drive-in for this season. I was able to finish the cuff of my next sock project before it got dark. Shazbat is the free Mystery Sock pattern for this round of the Sock Knitters Anonymous Sock Down. I highly recommend participating in SKA if you love knitting socks OR want to learn to knit socks. Each month’s Sock Down focuses on a different feature or skill such as colorwork, cables, lace, self-striping yarn, using leftovers. And there are prizes from lots of great dyers (like me!) This yarn is Gemini dyed by Tyrannosaurus Knits for the Tripping Yarn Balls Zodiac Club. Minty green like Doublemint gum (get it?)
