eighth socks finished

20 September 2007 2,294 views 6 Comments

The only Christmas knitting that I’m going to do this year is finished. One pair of socks for the father in law. The pressure to really crank out a lot of handknits (albeit self-imposed) is a bit much, so I’m officially putting myself on an every-other-year schedule. Sorry family, no knits for you.

Pattern: 6 x 2 rib with the Yarn Harlot’s basic sock recipe from Knitting Rules
Yarn: Indigo Moon fingering weight, bought at Three Bags Full in Vancouver.
Needles: Size 2 US (3.0mm) KnitPicks DPNs
Started: August 10th, 2007
Finished: September 17th, 2007
Final Verdict: When the Husband tried them on, I realize that they’re too long in the foot. They’re just for wearing around the house in the cold Cape Cod winter though, so I don’t think it’s a big deal. Merry Christmas FIL, forget that you saw this post!

    They’re lovely! I’m knitting several pairs of socks for my SIL, and probably a pinwheel sweater for my niece. But I have the first pair of socks mostly done and the second pair started, so this is feasible.

    Yes, Holiday knitting really bites the big one. I’m making something for each parent and everyone else can sit and spin!
