Alive and Knitting

I haven't blogged for awhile, but I have been knitting. My knitting has just been rather unremarkable. Until Monday (I think) I had nothing finished. Before then if I showed you my progress you would have wondered why I was showing you the same thing over and over again.

Monday though I managed to finish my Rhiannon knee high socks. In this heat I can't imagine wearing these anytime soon, but come fall I will be happy to have a pair of cabled wool knee high goodness.

These socks were knit using approximately 5 skeins of knitpicks essentials sock yarn. The pattern is Rhiannon from Cookie A. I knit these on size 0 addi's using magic loop. Most of the cables were knit without a cable needle.

The down side of these socks is that I feel like they make my calves look bigger than they are. Generally I like my calves and feel like they have a nice shape, but in these I feel like they are gigantic, oh well, they will be worn anyway.

On WRS I am up to row 32 of the second repeat. It still pretty much looks the same, so I am not going to share a photo.

I hope everyone has a great 4th of July!

I can't believe how quickly you finished them.

I haven't been keeping up with my blog reading enough, but I've been thinking of you! I miss you so much. I definitely definitely want to make a trip up to Boston sometime soon, and when that actually happens, we MUST hang out!! I hope we can swing it. :)

And the socks look gorgeous. I know I always use that word to describe your work, but what can I say? It's always appropriate. Your knitting is amazing.

I love how your socks turned out. I had that pattern in mind before I saw you were doing it and now that I see them on you, it's got me itching to buy the yarn. Not looking forward to a size zero needle, though. You did a great job and I think they look great on.
