I'm Back, Baby!

And I've got a finished pair of socks! These are my Finn Following Socks. The pattern is from The Sock Calendar. They are April's Rainy Day socks, knit in Sandridge from Lorna's Laces on US size 1's. I finished them up over the weekend, but not having a camera, decided to wait to blog them.

Amazingly, I do not have any socks on the needles right now. None. Zip. Not even a tiny cuff is cast on. I have been knitting my little heart out on the Mystery Stole and I'm halfway through Chart 5. WOoHooo! I'm about 60 rows away from the edging and I would love to finish it up this weekend and get it blocked. At this point, I do have a goal date set for releasing the pattern, but I don't really want to share it because if I do that, life will backhand me and I'll either end up A. missing the goal and disappointing people who are waiting for the pattern, or B. killing myself trying to get it done. So we'll just have to be content knowing that I'm far enough along to start setting finishing goals. (I typed goats instead of goals there, hmmmm - anyone know what a finishing goat is? Could it be helpful in pattern writing?)

Have a great weekend!

I finished my Mystery Stole on Wednesday morning and quickly blocked it so I could take it to my Guild meeting that night. It received rave reviews! I convinced several others in my guild to knit it as well, but I am the first one to complete it. Thanks for the lovely design.

Keep the goat as far away from any pattern writing. The goat will eat the pattern!

BTW, after a very crazy summer where I expected to do the Mystery Stole......I have two swatches! and lots of yarn. :( Hop to get to knit it soon.

Those came out great! Shows you that following Finn is not wasted time. I have the same yarn/colorway, so this might motivate me to use it for something, too -- I really like how the colors came out on your socks.

Finishing goats finish off fibery projects in one meal! Don't let anything you want to keep around them!

The socks look great.

Love how the pattern shows off the colorway. Very nicely done.
