img 071Recently I’ve been working exclusively on a pair of socks for my father’s birthday. I didn’t finish them on time (and I’m not finished yet!) but I did let him try on the one sock I had done. No pictures of the finished sock yet, I’ll save that for when they’re both done. I’m using the pattern for Eunny Jang’s Bayerische socks (which I love) and Dalegarn’s Baby Ull (which I also love -soso soft superwash merino). I’m using a larger needle size because they’re knit for a man, but it looks like they’re going to be a little loose around the leg, so I’ll sew in some elastic. They don’t look loose here with me modeling them, but they slouch when walking around.

I’ve been so busy with these socks, I haven’t had any extra time to dedicate to my blogging. I have been watching my blog stats though, and thanks to Knitting Pattern Central for featuring my pattern for the Ribbed Lace Bolero last week, my blog visits have skyrocketed to over 25,000! Holy crap! Thank you Knitting Pattern Central! Also thank you to my subscribers. I love reading your comments and following your blogs too.

I promise lots more knitting and blogging soon (as soon as the socks are done). I have a million new project ideas that I can’t wait to start.
