Brad’s a bit under the weather and is staying home today. Two of our grandsons had a run-in with some mosquitos and need to stay home as well. The sun is out and it’s going to be hot and dry so we’ll enjoy the day inside.
I finished the Monkey Socks and picked up the Exploding TARDIS socks to work on. I still have two more pairs of socks that only need the cuffs knitted.
The other two pairs of socks are in darker yarn than I wanted to work with last night and these are bright and cheerful socks and are a better choice for evening knitting. I’ll work on the dark blue ones today while I have better light.
I enjoyed knitting the Monkey Sock pattern. Knitting one pattern repeat after another is more enjoyable than seemingly endless ribbing, but it’s hard to beat plain crew socks with K2, P2 ribbing and they are very forgiving of my left ankle which needs a sock with more ‘give’ to it. One of the reasons I’m knitting six new pairs of socks is because I have several older pairs that I can’t wear since I broke my ankle. They are just too tight around my left ankle.
And I found another skein of sock yarn from Fishknits Yarn in my stash. It’s a nice shade of green and I might pick a lace pattern for that yarn. I’ve done pretty well going through my stash and singling out one-of-kind skeins that don’t go with anything else for a larger project.
