Year of Projects - Hiiumaa Post 01

and its mismatched mate

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 

The first Hiiumaa sock was no sooner started than finished, thanks to hours of hockey and rugby game watching. Also, many thanks to everyone who encouraged me to skip ahead on last week's post! I feel a bit like I'm breaking my self-imposed rules but here's to me living dangerously. Goodness knows what may happen next!

Earlier in the week I finished up my Dalarna socks leaving my sock needles waiting for a decision (posted here). The lure of stash busting was just too much. Besides, the next pattern in the list is knit on 3.25mm needles, and I really need to have a think about what sock yarn might be suitable for that!

Also, as mentioned my Friday and Saturday posts, I'm giving away copies of the patterns for Serengeti Sun or Star Light in support of the designer who's struggling with some serious health issues right now. If you'd like to knit one or the other, please leave a comment before the end of the weekend indicating which pattern you'd prefer and your Ravelry user name. I'll gift either pattern through Ravelry to the first twenty people who express interest before the end of the weekend.

Oh for goodness sakes. My tired eyes read. "Year of Projects - Humiliation 01"!! I was wondering how many humiliations you suffered to have to number them.
I need some sleep! Love em.

I like the new socks! After reading your post about Serengeti Sun I went over to Ravelry and bought it. It looks like a cute pattern.

^_^ Love the comment beneath your socks pic "and it's mismatched mate"! They look lovely though! Very comfy! And so nice of you to support the designer. Unfortunately I don't knit, but I'll spread the word!

How awesome you're adding in neat coloring along w/that brownish grey. What a great project to bring along to such games.
