Remember when I used to show photographs of my finished hand knits while they were still hot off the needles? Yeah, me too. Things sure have changed around here when it comes to my prompt execution of a photo shoot but I do have some finished July Socks to show you today.
Aren’t those colors awesome? The yarn is Spunky Eclectic Tough Sock and the color is called Twenty Ten. As in SPA 2010. You probably don’t remember this, although I think you should because every.detail.of.my.life should be burned into your memory, but when I attended SPA in February of 2010 I was recovering from pneumonia. I was so happy to be there and Helen, one of the original and awesome SPA divas, was so happy I was there that she gave me the first SPA gift of the weekend and it just happened to be this particular skein of yarn.
So, yeah, it’s been marinating in the stash for a bit. I’m so glad I finally knit socks with it, though – just look at those pinks and blues and browns and golds. Yummmmm.
I went with a simple picot edge sock because I didn’t want anything taking away from the pretty pretty color combo. It wasn’t at all because I’m a lazy knitter. Nope. Not At All.
There was practically no pooling, which is sort of a miracle for a yarn with this many color changes. That Amy, she’s a genius.
And I have finished 7 pairs of socks for 2012 which means I am right on track for my goal of 12 pairs for the year. I think that might just make me a genius. Or at least a smart cookie.
Oh great. Now I want a cookie.
