Happy New Year Everyone!
As usual, I finished my December SAM 8 socks about 11:30 pm. I only had a toe to do, but procrastinated all day.
I started sock 1 in March for our Monkey's for March KAL at SAM 8...what month is it now? Lately my goal is to get a few of those unfinished socks done. All I have left for socks is a pair of cuffs and like 4 rows started of another, that will be frogged and restarted. So I'll start off 2010 sock wise a lot better than last year. (no we aren't going to talk about the other Wips are we ;)
Which I don't mind, but after 3 pairs in the last 6 months, a bit tired of them now. The left sock was started in March on 2.75mm circular, a bit loose, but not too bad. I had also knit the entire cuff with the same needles. The right sock I started a week ago, knit only on 2.5mm. Darn, I like how the colors work better on that one....sigh..what a difference .25 can make.
So I tried them on to see if I could make the yo's open up a bit and see the pattern.
yeah, not too bad..
The yarn isn't too bad, pretty soft actually. The only beef is some unspun areas, which I noticed more on sock 2. The yarn comes in 2 skeins so maybe it was just that one skein.
The color is pretty good, better on sock 2, no huge pooling of colors either. Just maybe should have picked a different pattern.
Anyhow, glad they are done! Onward to 2010
