and the drivers are all focussing fiercely on this point:
Yes, the last weekend, I went to another autocross as Husband's official photographer again. After exploring the various settings of the camera, I can now take pretty good pictures of the cars racing through the track in high speed:
[Note: This is not Husband driving ... I just chose this picture snobbishly because it is a Ferrari! LOL!]
And of course I brought along my socks with me ... they seemed quite excited about the exposure too:
Here they are, finished but unwashed and unblocked:
Pattern: Chutes-N-Ladders from SixSoxKnitAlong
This is a fun pattern to knit. It looks complicated but actually is very easy to memorize.
Yarn: Patons Kroy 4-ply Col: 54010 Newport Tan
The yarn feels soft in the ball but after knit up, the socks are a bit stiff. I was a little bit disappointed. However, this got changed after I put them into the washer. It is machine washable in cold water. The socks become incredibly soft.
Gauge and size: 9 stitiches per inch
I made the largest size with a cast on of 80 stitches. Since I used the tubular cast on, I got 81 stitches. So, I k2tog the last stitch in the round with the first one. This also helped to minimize the gap there.
Needles: DPNs US1.5
Now I can put them away in the closet until October, when they will be sent to my father for his birthday.
