pps & soon i'll move on
no way was I planning to let these go. I knit socks sooo slowly, each pair is held dear. By the end of August they were just about done. I put them aside to save for the neighborhood New Years Eve bonfire. To wear, not to burn. (duh!). Finished Sunday, instead. No problem, we conveniently have 5 inches of fresh snow & ice, new socks gratefully placed on my happy feet.
needles: size 2US
pattern: just your basic top down with a 3-1 rib
Wish I'd made taller cuffs, I was worried about the yardage and of course had a huge amount leftover. I know, that's the reason for toe up. Maybe the next pair! Wonderful yarn, by the way.
And, drumroll, the nephew in the sizable Bounce. Yow, that stretched. Overlook the cheesy silouetting, please. My sister sent this jpeg with the background blending into the tam, and we can't have that. Definitely the biggest hat I ever knit that fit someone- his dreads are all at least as long as the one in front, and he's tucking them into the hat. I just might knit him another with a deeper but smaller (in circumference) brim and slightly less stretchy tam-ness. Maybe I'll use a bunch of mixed Noro leftovers, that'd be cool, wouldn't it?
