been making socks socks socks. too lazy to take pics right now. I’ll try to muster up the energy tomorrow.
Tofutsies is splitty while knitting. I the way these socks feel on my feet tho. also, the label recommends size 2… I used a 2.25mm 1, and even that produced a fabric that’s a tad too holey-for my liking. but the FO is comfty.
Socks That Rock lightweight superwash merino is super comfty. cushy, scrunchable, soft and snuggly. if you haven’t tried STR yet, what are you waiting for?!
after using KP DPNs, I cannot use my bamboo or birch! too slow and sticky! :cheering:I the KP DPNs! :cheering:
my 2nd pair of Lorna’s Shepherd came out fraternal. the striping on one has a slower, wider sequence, yeah, I’m bummed, but I’m still going to wear them.
now I’m making some Regia Bamboo Color socks for my friend Jen who so kindly out of the blue made and sent me notecards, and socks for both my mom (Regia Silk, Lana Grossa Meilenweit Trend) and dad (Regia Multi Effekt, Regia Jacquard).
CV’s ankle is a lot better.
Dyl comes home in a week. then we start the lovely tasks of buying him school supplies, clothes, a watch, and maybe a cel phone (hugangous maybe, I’m not convinced he needs one quite yet). he turned 14 yesterday and for his present, his mom took him to the Giants-Padres game. we tried to spot him on TV. he start high school on the 27th. he can’t participate at TKD yet (Drs. will clear, or not clear him for normal activity in the Oct-Nov timeframe after another angiogram), but the owner invited him to teach the 4-6 year olds, just to stay in the swing of things and keep the school philosophy and code of conduct in his head.
