Time for a mid week check in on the knitting and reading . . .…
I finished Dale’s Cable Twist Rib socks. I only started these last July, that’s not too bad, right? The first sock was almost completed but it’s been languishing in the knitting basket since August when I had cast on the watermelon-striped Vesper sock yarn for Hannah. Then I had some Trekking I wanted to try and . . . well, you get the idea. Plus, I was getting wicked ladders on these socks. But Magic Loop (thanks again, Julia and Cate) solved all that and I picked up sock one last Sunday. Finished it on Tuesday and started sock two right away. Finished sock two on Saturday. I love worsted weight socks! Boy do they go fast. When you actually work on them. Ahem.
Here’s a close up of the pattern. Very simple and no cable needle required.
And now Dale is whining that he wants a sweater to match. Yeah, sure. Not a problem.
In the meantime, I think I will join Mason for a martini. Is there AA for Siamese cats?
