rainy day knitting
That's my pair of funky ankle socks done. Leaving a long tail and weaving it back and forth through the cast off edge went a long way to subdue its tendency to curl. They fit nicely, they're comfortable and they're practical for summer, but if I do them again I'll make the ruffled cuff longer and maybe bead the lower edge of the ruffle to weight it down.
Most of this weekend has been overcast and rainy - perfect knitting weather. With my ankle socks off the needles, I should really be turning my attention to finishing my Heartland Lace Shawl. I should, but I haven't. Somehow, a quick and mindless stashbusting project has more appeal. Maybe by Monday I'll have the energy to pick up the shawl again? In the meantime, it's dishcloths for me.
