I took Marble Arches, a Rockin' Sock Club 2006 shipment, on our May trip to Hawaii. My hopes were to finish the socks and post my holiday knitting much sooner than this. Instead, I cast on new items and worked on other things that were of more immediate interest.
I am pleased to say that I finished sock two this evening. I rushed onto the porch out to photograph my small accomplishment while there was still some light left.
The socks are knit using Blue Moon Fiber Arts STR medium weight yarn in the Pink Granite colorway. I used the recommended 2.25 mm needles. The resulting fabric is dense with little give. That's alright, the socks fit and are comfortable.
The pattern has you cast on 144 stitches and knit and purl them together to create the ruffled edge at the cuff. Three sets faux cables put me in mind of Cookie's Tatania sock that I finished earlier this year.
My progress on keeping up with the bi-monthly shipments has been abysmal. I have another pair socks, Winter's Eve, left to knit to finish out the year 2006. Then on to 2007.
I'm not sure that my feet smell that badly, Koko!
My new skein and pattern, a lacy design and loud colorway, has already arrived. I just keep on knitting...
