Turkey Tracks: February 7, 2012
Yes, I’m still knitting socks.
Here’s a pair given to daughter-in-law Corinne at Thanksgiving. Though she lives in Charleston, she travels to Philadelphia and to Maine in the winter.
I particularly like this yarn because it has little glitter bits woven into the yarn. It seems so festive:
Here’s a pair started in Charleston over Thanksgiving and given to daughter-in-law Tamara when she came to Maine for Christmas this year. This yarn was so yummy to work with–I recall it had something added–aloe? lanolin?:
And, here’s a pair I made for myself, using Cookie A’s pattern, “Lindsay.” This one was a bit easier as it repeats consistently over 8 rows. And, it had a short-row heel and toe, which was so fun to make. My first time with a short-row. The column that runs down the sock is only on the outside of each sock. That’s the kind of detail about which Cookie A thinks.
Here’s what the pattern looks like when stretched out a bit:
These feel great on my feet.
