Last week, I started a brand new pair of socks and I was wondering how much I'd have time to knit on them before baby got here. Would I turn the heel? Would I finish sock #1? Would I get to the toe of #2?
I actually finished them! I'm sorry I don't have a great picture, I'm not really in the mood for a photo shoot (and bending over to photograph my own feet is not an easy task, let me tell you!).
Pattern: Glynis, by Cookie A
Yarn: Slackford Studio, LLC Stalwart Sock in From Dusk Till Dawn
Needles: US 2 - 2.75 mm needles
Notes: I usually use US 1 needles for socks but I had read comments saying it wasn't a very stretchy pattern so I opted for bigger ones. They fit very well so I think I made the right choice. I also chose to do only eight repeats (instead of nine) on the legs, because I have short legs.
If you ever knit this pattern, don't forget to check the errata.
So I finished the socks yesterday and I cast on this morning for... another pair of Cookie A socks, also from the book Sock Innovation. This time I'm making Eunice, using Knit Picks Essential Tweed in Plum. I guess I'm in a purple phase. I really like the yarn, it's a shame Knit Picks has stopped making their tweed sock yarn!
So, do you all think I'll get to finish these socks before baby gets here?
