pattern: Knitting Pure & Simple #245 Children’s Easy Lightweight Sock
yarn: Regia 4ply Patch Antik Colors #5759-Jeans
gauge: 8spi on Susan Bates US1 DPNs
cast on: March (mid month, I think) cast off: April 1st
notes: These socks were fun to knit. I knit the pattern as written except for grafting the toes instead of just gathering and pulling. Yes, the socks are matchy matchy and I pulled out sections of color so the heels and toes would be solid. I wish I had done the same for the ribbing at the top of the sock, oh well. Even with the sections I pulled out I still have almost half a ball left, 49g of a 100g ball. I may make him another pair from the same yarn, just shorter, or make a pair of toddler socks for the Dulaan Project.
I also finished my first Project Spectrum project for April-May. A Ballband Dishcloth, I know, you’re shocked.
I’m not going to bore you with the details . . . I’ll just point out that it has all three PS colors. I ran out of green for the background (I knew it was going to be close, but I didn’t think I would run out) so I grabbed some yellow to finish off the last few rows. Very spring!
Right now I am working on the Moss Grid Hand Towel from Mason-Dixon Knitting, only one repeat and the border to go then I can throw it into the washer and dryer and see how it turns out. Have. To. Trust. The. Yarn.
