Thanks for all your well wishes for a great weekend for our living history. We had blue skies and lots of fun. I’ll have pictures and details tomorrow but today I have socks.
These are the finished Primavera Socks. They are for my May Day Sock Swap pal. The yarn is Trekking color 145. It’s very bright orange but my sock pal indicated orange as one of her favorite colors so I think I chose well.
Teyani brought this pattern – a free Ravelry download – to my attention and I’m so glad she did! It’s simple but entertaining and I found that it knit up very fast. I did substitute my usual heel and toe treatments rather than use the ones as written in the pattern.
On Thursday these socks will be winging their way to my sock swap partner. And I will be winging my way to Maryland Sheep & Wool. That’s right. I’m going to stay with Hillary. We’ll be touring DC on Friday and hitting the festival on Saturday. I’ll be back home on Sunday night – a whirlwind trip, for sure! But you know it won’t be so fast that I won’t remember to capture every little detail for you guys. It’s a tough job but someone’s got to do it.
