The Candy Socks are finished! Hooray! I finished them last night, sitting alone in the dark on the catwalk of the school theatre, while waiting for a drop-lowering cue for a dance recital. Very exciting. I was very afraid that I would totally fudge the bind-off for the second sock (actually the first sock which I had fudged before), but all turned out well. They’re very cute socks.
Just in time for a weird, hot, humid Baltimore summer, of course.
The next pair I cast on June 21st for the Summer of Socks. They will be Koigu ankle socks/slippers for J, for college. I’m not exactly sure about a pattern yet, nor am I sure exactly what I’m doing. I’ll have to look into that. Good thing I have time. T_T
I have packed up the dyed yarn PLUS stitch markers (I hate split jewelers’ rings) PLUS candy, and I’m very pleased with the way the yarn turned out. Did I mention that?
At the moment, however, I am avoiding an English essay. Last week of school? Please end soon kthx.
