sockalicious!

Okay, it might seem like I've been idle, as it has been forever since my last posting, but it's only because I've been knitting gifts galore and can't post the images online. But here is a photo of my first, self-designed project: a sock for my husband--



Actually, the cable pattern is taken from Maria Parry-Jones' Knitting Stitch Bible--the Oxo Ripple Cable. Here's a close-up:



--but I designed the sock myself. The yarn is Zitron's Trekking XXL color #182, which I love. It changes color as the day does, and is a very soft yarn.

I love knitting socks, making a three-dimensional object out of a string. But I wish it would go faster! Lovely Husband has a cold, and outside is all bluster and winter show. He needs those socks now!

The socks are wonderful and the color is perfect.

It is odd to read about blustery and cold weather, while here in the northern hemisphere in California, USA, it is over 100 degrees F. (37.8 degrees C.). VERY HOT.
