So I finished one Sockapaloooza sock. What can I say? I can only tell you that the pattern is really a pleasure to work with. It is easy to memorize (or to click with it, as Paula put it) and the sock turns out beautiful. And I think the pattern goes really well with the bright red yarn, maybe even better than the purple in the book. So, the knitting went like a breeze and before I knew it, one sock was done. Did I cast on immediately for the second one? Nah. Not to do with second sock syndrom ... just that I don't want to finish it so quickly!
Mmm ... what next? I decided to return to Husband's socks. This time, I chose another pattern from Knitting Vintage Socks, Gentleman's Plain Winter Socks. I don't have picture to show you though. Just imagine 4" of 3k2p ribbing following by plain stocking stitches all the way down to the toes! I am now at the midway of the ribbing.
Besides the sock, I have actually been working on 2 sweaters. One is the green sweater for Husband ... the 8.5 sts per 1" sweater. I managed to add another 3" of stocking stitch, not too bad, huh?
Then, some time ago, I started the Must Have Cardigan from Street Smart. Actually, the cardigan is the one that I have wanted to work on first before I set my eyes on Urban Aran. The pattern is another super easy one to remember:
Knitting-wise, that's about it. I received Rowan 39 over the weekend ... yeah, THAT Rowan 39. There are a few things I'd like to talk about but I think I'll leave that for the next post. For the meantime, Happy Knitting everybody!
