Aloha! Despite not getting enough sleep, I am in happy spirits after coming off a high from attending a fun workshop last night and having a good walk/run this morning. Our east bay is slowly cooling down; it’s still low 90’s but I can tell the difference, thank goodness. What temperature is it in your hood?
I was going to wait tomorrow to post these but I’m too excited to show these formal, close-ups taken by Jellybean.
#1: Cookie Jar KAL
I hope to take another photo shoot when it’s colder. Why you may wonder? It is my dearest wish to find a vintage or neutral, flowery midi skirt to wear with these socks. I have lace midi skirts but I felt they would detract away from my socks. I also plan to look for some cute, strappy sandals to wear with these as vermillion on Ravelry took a cute photo of her Hederas in these leather sandals.
Here’s a close up of the lace stitch pattern:
I’m really proud of these socks.
#2: Travel Socks
You know from the last podcast my DPN’s were clackin’ some mad knitting before the husband and I flew off to Seattle:
I didn’t like the idea of walking through security barefoot *shudders at the germs* which is why these were started. When he and I were waiting for the shuttle to take us to SFO from long-term parking, it was hella cold, something we always forget about. I whipped these babies out at the shuttle stop and my feet warmed up nicely.
I love this Regia yarn. It’s hardy and has good weight. I need to look for more at STITCHES next February. I did wash and block my travel socks after our trip which softened up the yarn a bit. And this Rose City Rollers pattern really fit my feet well. I now kind of like the fit of this rounded toes more than the standard wedge ones.
That’s all for today, folks. Have a good day. Aloha.
