Weekend Socks Part 2

Some of you may have noticed or will notice that I have enabled comment moderation. I just wanna say that it was nothing personal about any of the legit readers and commenters I get, but I was tired of having to delete links to Asian porn sites off of every single post I make lately. It's kind of a pain to do it this way, but it is saving me more hassle in the end.

I finished up the second pair of Weekend Socks, Ravelry details here on this pair, on the first pair here. They striped the same as the first pair (even though I didn't plan it), except this pair's toes ended with yellow instead of green. These ones were started July 11, finished the 18th, these are just standard 60-stitch vanillas on 2.5mm bamboo dpns. The yarn is Kertzer On Your Toes 4ply in the weekend print colorway.

Sometimes some of my Knit Nite friends get good deals at a couple of the chain stores in a town about 1/2 hour drive from here. I rarely see anything good when I go. However, I did snag some Patons Classic Wool last week. The benefits of being a knitter and working in a yarn shop is that you can identify a lot of times what the "Mystery Yarn" is, lol. At $4.50 plus tax a bag I couldn't pass it up. There is enough of the Forest colorway to probably make two pairs of felted slippers, the other colorway in this bag is Harvest, but that will need a contrasting color in order to make slippers.
The second bag has a bit of Rosewood, I'll need a contrasting color for slippers, too. The other colorway was a mystery to me, but by the looks of it, it's one of the new colors, Lotus. Probably enough there for two pairs of slippers as well.
There were a couple of bags of Shetland Chunky Tweeds, too, but they had been ripped open and were kind of in a mess, so I passed on them. All in all not a bad haul for the price. Probably four full pairs of slippers and two half pairs (or two kids pairs) for $10.35.
Happy knitting!
