Stacks may be a 'slight' exaggeration. There is one finished pair, and a newly began pair, but I must admit to being just slightly obsessed with them above all other knitted objects at the moment. My prediction is that this will only be a momentary obsession, but will be a long lasting passion with many more socks to be seen in my future.
So the Jaywalkers are finished. Knit over the course of about 2 weeks on 2.75mm in Lorna's Laces "Iris" colourway. I initially started them on 2.25mm but they were too tight on me, so I jumped up 2 needle sizes, which made them pretty big, too big for me in fact. Once I realised this, I worked on this labour of love with my darling husband in mind (who has size 12 feet).
After the mammoth effort on the HUGE jaywalkers, I figured something for me would be a much quicker knit. I also wanted to do a toe-up sock... it's fascinating all the different ways of constructing the same object, and I currently want to try them all! So I stumbled across the Vinnland pattern at the Anti-Craft yesterday before I left on an overnighter at the in-laws. Lots of knitting time in the car meant I got to get a good start on them. I'm knitting them in the Monster Knits "Meadow" colourway that I scored off ozebaby a couple of weeks ago. They don't look like much off a foot, but stretch out the pattern and they look awesome! I'm very happy with these so far!I also picked up this book at the mini-wool expo held in Coburg a little while back. It's full of gorgeous patterns, and I just can't decide what I want to do first! I bought some Cleckheaton Coccoon in baby pink a couple of days ago, and I'm keen to attempt the waving lace ones pictured on the front .
