Sunny weather socks
On this first summer weekend of perfect weather I had the good fortune to find myself in a Muskoka Chair at the shore of Lake Erie. A perfect spot to get to work on my first Glynis sock. The pattern is not complicated - although I'll admit, it took me more than one try to get through the first few repeats of the lace pattern. But now that I've finished five repeats, I've pretty much got it down, knock on wood. Unlike most Cookie A. patterns there's not a lot of drama. No travelling stitches. No complicated charts. Short easily memorized pattern rows. Plain knit on alternate rows. But an attractive and comfortable result, I think.
And over the next couple of days I'm going to have a look at dishcloth patterns to knit. I have a few balls of dishcloth cotton from my Mom ... when the cottage owner asked if I could knit a couple of dishcloths for her, it seemed like an ideal way to use them.
