The temperatures are back up in the nineties - just in time for some finished hand-knit socks!
Well, in actuality, the've been revamping our HVAC system at work and for over a month we had no control over the temperature in my office, leaving us to shiver in the suddenly frigid meat-locker cold. We even resorted to opening the windows to let the heat IN.
So maybe hand-knit socks in the summer are not such a bad idea!
These are socks I started on a family reunion trip to Iowa. I'd chosen a pattern -- Rainbow Socks by Suzanne Kitzmann, but it just wasn't working out in this yarn, so I'll save that pattern for another skein. For this yarn, Plymouth Sockotta in the colorway so eloquently named "367", I changed to Dolce by Sheryl Greenfield .
I like these socks. They're a little more pastel than is my usual taste, but I like them anyway.
I couldn't entirely match the two socks, though they are close twins. Starting the second sock at the same place in the color repeat meant I ran out of yarn just before finishing, so the second sock has a little pink toe. I guess that just means I can tell them apart!
