Hmmm is right. Back in January I had set a goal for myself to knit 6 pair of socks and sadly I will not meet that goal. The Rosalynd Socks, designed by Patti Waters, knit in Pearl will be completed before the year is out, but it will not be number 6.
Having completed the first sock I am working on the second one. Somewhere around the middle of the first sock I bit the bullet and started cabling without a needle. A bit tricky with such small stitches, but it saves fiddling with that extra needle. I will admit that cabling on socks is not my favorite thing to do, but I love how they look so I persevere.
The first socks of the year were my French Quarter socks, designed by Anne Hanson made in Kashmir. I finished the first one and started the second one, but I have to tell you cabling on size 0's is a challenge for this slow knitter. As soon as I finish Rosalynd though I am going to finish the second French Quarter sock while I am in a cabling mode. :-)
By early summer my Hayricks, designed by Anne Hanson made in Pandora were ready to be worn. These are a perfect lightweight sock for those cool spring/fall days. I really love these socks........almost better than any of them. Comfy without being too hot.
After reading Carole's post about Dale's new socks and how it has been 2 years since she knit him a pair...I was shamed. You see, it's been about 4 years since I knit Mr. Woolenrabbit a new pair of socks, so come January his socks made with this hand-spun will be the first socks of the new year. :-)
