Finished SocksNovember 9, 2006
Yarn: Trekking XXL in colorway 133
The yarn has been raved about all over the internet, and when I bought it I kind of thought it felt rough and thin. It doesn’t have the softness that some of the other sock yarns I have used. However, the thinnes makes these socks great for wearing inside shoes and they really fit my feet like a glove. I am hoping after their first washing they will soften up a lot.
These socks are pretty basic. I started them back in August and put them down for awhile as knitting on size 1 needles gets a little boring for me.
I don’t get stuck with having the one sock problem that other people have because after I finish one sock I immediately cast on for the second. Then, I have been telling myself I can only have one pair of socks going at one time. Or atleast one pair per needle size. I am sure as life goes on I will continually make exceptions to my silly rules as I always do.
I am happy to finish them, especially since I haven’t been feeling well lately. Last night was particularly bad.
Well, I will continue trying to clear my plate of all my WIP’s. I really don’t have very many left. Yay!
