More unusually hot temperatures plagued us this week. It isn’t the best weather for getting things done. But we’re getting a cool down for a couple days before the heat returns, so maybe I’ll be more productive. Only time will tell. It’s a good thing I have some small projects to keep me occupied. Like socks….This is Skinny Singles yarn by Hedgehog Fibres. For this pair of anklets I used the color Genie. It’s a bit like candy. Or sunshine through stained glass. I love the way the speckles of brighter color pop up.
For those of you who are interested, I prefer to knit the toes up and start off with a crocheted chain before using two DPN’s (double pointed needles for the uninitiated) to increase to the required stitch count. For me, with this yarn and these needles, that’s 52 stitches. Then I knit over to a 9″ circular and I’m ready to knit with minimal mental energy required. One of these days it will actually be cool enough to wear these. I hope! I’m done with the heat.
So, what’s new with you? Can you believe Christmas is about two months away?! I’m having a problem getting my head around that.
