Fifteen of Fifty-Two
Pair fifteen of fifty-two for the 52PP and my second pair of August socks. They are knit with Fortissima Socka in color #9072. (Not seeing this color listed on their site any more, either.) These are for the store. They're standard 60sts on 2.25mm needles, heel flap over 30sts, toe to 20sts. Pretty standard.
Finally I have a picture of the scarf I knit on the road for my MIL for Christmas. It's just plain garter since you can't tell anyways. I used Patons Carmen in Camel. (I don't see this listed on the Patons site any more, so it must be discontinued. They had cut out a lot of the colors, so it's not surprising to see it totally gone now.) It's soooooo soft, but I don't like knitting with it a lot. I've made two adult scarves with it and two child scarves.
I'm a winner! I was one of the lucky winners of Pat's Blogiversary Appreciation Day contest. I will be receiving a skein of lightweight Socks That Rock in Rose Quartz. I'm not a super-pink person, but I've been eyeing that colorway since I saw it on their site. Then I tried to win a skein of Alyson's leftover from her wedding stockings but sadly lost. So I guess it was meant to be after all, just from a different blogger! Now I'll have to go over my sock patterns and pick something lacey. I think that color needs to definitely be girly socks. (Be sure to check out Pat's finished Mystery Stole 3 -- it's gorgeous! I am tempted to try the fourth one.)
We did get in a new order of Austerman Step while I was away. These two followed me home the other day, I swear. Kinda weird, too. One of Heddy's vacationing co-workers came in yesterday, and the same two colors followed her home, too.
Have a nice holiday weekend for those of you with Monday off.
