Hi. My name is Carole and I’m a sock knitting addict. All you other sock knitting addicts out there – and you know who you are – should be raising your hand right now and saying, “Hi, Carole.” This is the part of SKA where I tell you my story so just sit back and relax.
On Saturday I finished my Trekking Ice Cream Socks.
Aren’t they pretty? Ooooh, the colors. Too bad this color combo (#126) has been discontinued. I found it on ebay, though, and you probably could, too.
These are my standard 72 stitch picot edge stockinette socks knit on size 0s. They fit me perfectly every time, even if they do take forever and a day.
Anyway, I finished these on Saturday and decided to give the sock knitting a rest. After all, I’ve finished two rounds of sock madness in the last few weeks and the sock knitting has been a bit intense around here as a result. Round Three starts tomorrow and I thought a few days rest from socks would be a good plan. Smart, right?
Ahem. I lasted until Monday afternoon and then I caved and wound up this Schaefer Anne and started the socks for my Bloomin’ Feet pal. I simply cannot be without socks on the needles.
