As I've mentioned before, weekends are too darn short. As such, I try to keep mine free - no pressure to do anything, go anywhere unless I feel like it.
However, this weekend - I did have one goal.To finish Dave's Brithday socks. And I did! (Only 18 days late, but who's counting?)
Can you believe I started these in December? Nine whole months to complete. One reason is because he has such big feet - it's much more fun making socks for my dainty little tootsies.
The other reason is the yarn - it didn't have a ball band, but I'm pretty sure it's Opal. Not a bad yarn, but I've been spoiled with our Wandering Cat line.
However, Dave is happy and hasn't taken them off since I gave them to him yesterday afternoon.
And, since I finished them so early in the weekend, I decide to tackle another pair:These, of course, are for me. Again, another yarn I wasn't overly thrilled with, so I had to force myself to finish them.
It's Twisted Fiber Art's Playful in Firefly. The dyeing is beautiful, but the base, while fairly soft, tends to be splitty. I'd much rather knit with her Kabam (a merino/bamboo mix), so I'm saving up for a skein or two.
So, that's two more second socks completed before the summer is over. Only four more to go - and three of those are ankle socks!
