Well, I suppose if I am knitting 4 pairs of socks in the next two months I can make Sock Sunday a regular feature.
Progress this week has been good. The once and future "Mush!" socks have been reincarnated. Nothing special going on here, just stockinette for miles.
The "Always" socks are up to row 67 of chart C / D and the gusset increases are well underway. This is a new kind of heel for me so I am following directions and hoping it will turn out well. I made my first Russian join yesterday when the yarn broke at a tender spot. So far, so good.
These are the "Forest Hideaway" socks, so named after the colorway. This yarn was a reward for finishing the Camp Loopy projects a couple years ago. It has been waiting for the perfect project and so far it is turning out well. The yarn is very lovely and soft. I am improvising the pattern: started with ribbing, then moved to spiralling ribbing, then got bored and kept just three "paths" going down the leg.
End of a (dyeing) era
