HFeet Jo Handoff
So, a slight change of plans for the weekend and we were able to drive the two hours to spend the night at Jo's. A fun time was had by all and lots of laughter happened. I mean lots. We were up until 3:00 a.m.!
I cast on some quick knits socks Friday as songferret, knitSB and I went to comfest to fulfill my obligation to go for the first time. I can knit and walk around hippies while there is still light, right? Yes.
I had the cuff done when I showed up at Jo's on Saturday afternoon about 2. I continued to knit these while chatting. We got on the topic of christmas and that paula wants me to knit her socks for christmas. I have no details of who I will have for christmas. (there are a lot of kids in my family so we pick names). I thought it would be fun to knit socks for Jo who was going to see Paula the following weekend and taunt her with the socks.
Well, I completed the first one just after dinner and cast on the second. I got them done and handed them off to Jo. Can you tell how thrilled she is? I like that smile!
Anyhow, these are knit using size 10 dpns and lambs pride bulky in a variety of colors. It is a simple, basic pattern from a former LYS used during my "learn to knit socks" class. I've altered the pattern using a twisted rib ribbing stitch throughout. I did the star toe to finish.
You can go to my flickr to see some additional photos of the sock and the sock hand-off.
This pair of socks is my fifth pair of these in about a month. I like these because of the quick nature and my comfort with the pattern. I almost don't need to pattern. I'll add a few pictures of the other colorful socks later this week.
