Sock in the rain
Or more accurately - sock on a sock blocker safe and dry inside while outside it's raining like it will never stop. Every drop is making me ever more glad I found that patch of sun on Friday! Let these colours chase away the grey.
This is the never ending Wollmeise sock that I frogged the too small version of back in March having previously abandoned the stranded tangle. It's taken months to finish this first one (and my Mum knitted a big section when she came to stay!).
I love the yarn, I love just knitting it plain, I love the swirl of colours at this stitch count - so very different from the smallies - I think these are 72 stitches cast on v 56 and it's magic what that does to the yarn. I don't love my lack of sock knitting this year, just not feeling the socky love so strongly.
My feet don't agree! They are definitely full of affection for the hand knits cosying their toes at the moment and as this pair are promised to my Mama it's a good job there's a need for travel knitting that a sock meets so well. It's at least kept these creeping along and as it's not long till holiday time and some long drives in the van hopefully that should kick the second one (and my sock mojo) in to gear.
