I finished a pair of socks in Malabrigo yarn, Tiziana Red colorway, that had been lurking with some other UFO projects. Two of those other projects were also socks. Yesterday I found another UFO in a basket in the workroom/studio. You guessed it. Another pair of socks.
That’s them on the right. Another skein of Malabrigo, Solis colorway, that I forgot about. All three pairs are to the stage of gusset increases and I’ve got my stitch markers in place to keep up with my increases.
It will be nice to have four new pair of socks in the sock drawer and I can weed out a couple of other pairs that are faded and worn.
Now that I have the increases begun on all three pairs of socks I think I’m going back to working on Gabriel’s summer blanket. It’s really mindless knitting and good to work on while watching TV. The socks are small enough projects to take with me when I’m away from home and actually the blanket isn’t that large yet so it could be travel knitting as well. This is some sock yarn I’ve had in my stash for a couple of years. It has slubs of nylon in it and it can be laundered in the washer and dryer.
Then there is the “in progress” Prayer Shawl using two colors of my hand-spun yarn. And a Harry Potter Scarf. And the Fourth Doctor’s Scarf. And the Sockhead Hat. Are you beginning to see the picture?
