On track

I'm at work, counting down till I can go home. I have one more therapy session and then I'm off. It has been extremely boring here at work, with very little hours of therapy every day and nothing else to do. Next week I have no therapy planned at all on Thursday. I asked my boss if I could take that day off, as I don't see the use of coming into work to do nothing. He suggested to bring along my knitting and a book. I told him I already did that! But I would prefer to sit at home to knit.

It's also extremely hot over here. Humid too, there'll be some great thunderstorms tonight (yay!). But then it'll be cloudy and cold over the weekend. :(

Anyway, I'm right on track with my sock knitting. In France I finished pairs 9, 10 and 11 for the 52 Pair Plunge II. Let's see :

Swirl socks 01

Pattern : Swirl socks

Yarn : Hello Yarn Fat Sock (100% superwash merino), Electra

Needles : 2,75 for the foot, 3mm for the leg

Modifications : They were toe-up, so I kept knitting till I ran out of yarn, adding shaping as I went up. They are almost knee high!

I loved knitting these and I already have a next pair in the plans! I can't wait for the weather to be cold enough to wear these.

Flutter by socks

Pattern : Flutter-by Socks (available as a free Ravelry download here)

Yarn : Spunky Eclectic Club sock yarn (100% superwash merino)

Needles : 2mm

These are a bit tight, but I hope that'll change a bit after the first washing. I didn't like the pattern as much as I thought I would and so I decided not to continue it on the foot. It does however suit the yarn nicely!

Carolina Socks 01

Pattern : Carolina socks (only available as a free Ravelry download at the moment)

Yarn : Regia 4ply Africa colour

Needles : 2,5mm for the leg, 2,25mm for the foot

Very nice and quick socks!! I like ripple patterns a lot, they are quick and perfect to give some interest to selfstriping sock yarn!

Those done, I'm now knitting a pair of Tiit socks, from Nancy Bush. They'll take me quite some time, and I want to knit on some other patterns. But I'm on track, if I finish up one more pair of socks I'm good till the end of August! But I'm into sock knitting, so I'm sure more socks will follow! :D
