I should have pulled them up to the same height, but my son was upset that I made him take pictures of my feet on the front stairs with the neighbors watching.
These socks were made using a circular US #2 needle (36"), Yarn Treehouse luster alpaca (black) and Trekking XXL color #100, one skein of each. And there's plenty of the Trekking left over. I might use it to make another pair of socks, but because the colors are kind of bold alone, I'll again pair it with another yarn.
My friend Aylin is expecting her first baby on July 17th so we are only a couple of weeks away. I made this blanket a couple of months ago, just freehand, no pattern. I figured it was a good way to reinforce what I learned about entrelac knitting. By the time it was done, I was thanking my lucky stars. Boring!
Fortunately, the blanket is as lovely as can be! Made with bamboo yarn from Sarah's Yarns, 2 skeins of white and 2 of blue, and size US #6 needles. The blanket measures 36"x40" and it's as soft as a baby's bottom.
Now I must take the time to warn you - I signed up for the Tour de Fleece with Ravelry, which means that I must spin yarn every day that the cyclists ride the Tour de France.
I'll be spinning yarn every day starting tomorrow through July 26th. There are days of rest (for me), but not for YOU because I'm taking you with me through every spinning triumph and every spinning disaster.
You can thank me later.
