Come Blog Along Pattern 01 Post 04
Knitting on the Road: Canada • Canal du Midi • Conwy • Dalarna • Denmark • Friday Harbor • Hiiumaa • Huron Mountain • New England • The Road to Oslo • Santa Fe • Spey Valley • Christmas in Tallinn • Traveler's Stockings • Uinta Cabin • Unst • Whitby
With the heel turn complete and the gusset decreases well underway, at the end of the third week of my Year of Projects I'm in the final stretch on this first pair of socks. Don't you find that the foot and toe go very quickly? The urge to finish I suppose.
It's been hot, hazy and humid here as it has been through most of North America. When we broke the record Thursday for the hottest day ever in July in Toronto, knitting was almost impossible. The wool was actually damp from the humidity and from the sweat from my fingers - the stitches stuck to the needles. Yuck. We've turned a corner weatherwise, returning to more seasonal temps which is a relief.
This sock should be completed in the next couple of days, so next week's update should be a first look at Canal du Midi socks. Now which yarn to select from my stash?
