Of Waffles and Voyages
I have finished my twelfth pair of socks for 2006! Yes folks, the waffles are done. The details for those that care: handspun yarn (roving from Kid Hollow Farm in the Loganberry colorway), knit on size 1.5 US needles (2.5 mm? I think), using the stitch pattern from the Blueberry Waffle socks. I loved this stitch pattern and the way it works up. The socks are squishy and should be nice and warm. I still have a decent amount of yarn left over and I should have enough for a third pair if I add another color for heels and toes as my mom suggested (actually she suggested that I give the yarn to her, but I suggested that she get her own roving and spin herself some socks).
Yesterday was a big day for the Post Office and they don't even know it. I sent my Sockapaloooza socks off on their long journey...to Maryland. Yes, that's right, my Sockapaloooza pal is in Maryland. I will reveal her identity when I know she has the socks (which should be today). I hope she likes everything - I have my knitting needles crossed that she will!
