The socks for the Artist just flew off my needles. I’m not sure if it was the vibrant colors, the simple sock pattern, or my knitting Mojo.
I cast on sock #1 on July 28 and finished sock #2 Monday evening…except for grafting the toe as I try to do that in the morning when my brain is rested.
This was hand-dyed yarn from the marathon dyeing session at the end of June.
The colors remind me of tropical fruits: pineapple. mango, papaya, and coconut. Refreshing colors on hot summer days.
The pattern was a basic top-down sock in plain stockinette stitch that really showed off the colors and an Eye of Partridge heel flap.
Once again to save as much of the hand-dyed yarn, I knit the toes in a contrasting color. This time it was Knit Picks Stroll fingering weight in Scarlet.
These two pairs are off to Colorado to the Artist and the Princess.
Next up are socks for the Karate Kid…just as soon as I finish a sewing project.
