As mentioned yesterday... I've already got a new pair of socks on the needles...
Sunday night, I was preparing my work bag for the next day. I went to put Nutkin in it, when I realized I was only one pattern repeat from the toe. I was going to be taking the train both ways on Monday (so a total of 5 hours commute time). That last repeat and toe just wasn't enough to keep me occupied.
Instead of hauling both Nutkin, and the materials for a new project, I decided to focus my commute on the new project, and finish Nutkin up when I got home that night.
So I went stash diving and came up with a ball of Online Supersocke 6. Valentines is fast approaching, and I'd like to have something small and heartfelt for my sweetie. It's a tight deadline, but with the amount of time I spend on the train, I think I can make it.
It helps that the yarn is sport weight too - combined with a slightly larger needle, it helps immensely with the progress you see there.
The yarn is a nice mix of brown, burgundy, purple and mauve. A little offbeat, but still slightly masculine.
Pin Striped Socks pattern, first seen on Dee's blog a little while back. It's nice and simple, but still fun - perfect commuter knitting.
Now... the clock is ticking so I better get back to it!
