The sun is shining but as you can see the temp is not all that warm.
When I was putting some correspondence in the mail box at the street earlier this morning
it wasn't that cold out
unlike yesterday when the temps were in the low 20s
and I swear it was the coldest, cold day we've had this winter.
THE day for wearing all the handknits possible -
hat, cowl, cardigan , mitts and sox.
Speaking of sox.
A second pair of the Broken Seed Stitch Sox is on the needles.
I'm lovin' this pattern and the results.
You may notice each sock has their on needle.
What with using two ball of yarn at a time,
it is much easier to have each them on their on own needle.
I'm still knitting them in somewhat of a two-at-a-time manner with an inch or so on one sock and then on the other.
They seem to go fairly fast,
probably because the pattern is a simple one
and now that I have inserted the waste yarn to mark where the afterthought heel goes and only the instep portion is in pattern it IS smooth sailing.
The neat thing about this pattern is
that I can modify the pattern to knit either toe up,
or as this pair is, cuff down.
Since I am using scraps or mini skeins
as long as the yarn lasts until the cuff and leg portion
is finished to the point I place the afterthought waste yarn marker I'm a happy camper.
That way the pattern shows above my shoe and the foot portion can be any color or pattern.
Luckily the yarn I'm using is enough to last well into the foot of the sox . . . . .
so far : ^ )
The weather being what it is
this afternoon will be just the time to finish our audiobook by John Sandford.
Have a good one.
