Summer of Socks!
Posted by Amber on June 22, 2008
Hey! It’s summer! And that means it’s summer of socks! I got started Saturday at Stitch with some Koigu I picked up when we first got it in (February?):
It’s KPPPPPPPPPPPPPM, P630-24.
I know a lot of people have been buying sock yarn for Summer of Socks … I think I could knit entirely from my stash and win the most socks contest. I was playing with ravelry’s stash output-to-Excel feature… and um … I might have more than 14 miles of sock yarn at home. BUT! I still wanted to get on the consumer bandwagon, so a few weeks ago I got – Sock Blockers!
I found them on etsy, from seller thankewe. Super fast shipping and she adjusted the shipping estimate and refunded some of my money after they mailed! I guess I’m jaded – I expect people to hold the entire amount and say “Handling.” So it always makes me happy with these little things. And they sock blockers are really nice – lots of varnish and very smooth on the edges!
I love the blossoms!
I doubt I’ll finish sock #2 in two days, but I think these are going to be great bus-knitting, so maybe by Friday!
