It's been a bit of a sock factory around here lately. With the deadline for the Warm Hands Network's January shipment looming, I've devoted my time to knitting as many pairs of children's socks as fast as I can. It might sound a bit tedious, but it's actually quite fun with this self-patterning yarn! Next weekend, I'm going to box 'em up and ship 'em out.
By end of day today the pair of turquoise jacquard socks will be completed, and, with any luck, I'll make a start on the second tangerine jacquard sock. Shirley and I are meeting up with fellow raveler Heather in Richmond Hill who has the tangerine yarn I need for the second sock and who is willing to trade for something in my stash.
Coincidentally, the location where we're to meet Heather is not far from The Knitter's Attic. And if we're going to be out that way, we may as well stop in and have a look around, don't you think?
