We’ve had a lazy morning. Instead of running errands, Elliot and I made sourdough crackers seasoned with Herbs de Provence. They are delicious, but the best part by far is having him as a helper in the kitchen.
I hope you are having a good start to your week. It’s going to be hot here this week, so I imagine we will be very lazy this week.
The rainbow socks are done. I’m sure they will get a lot of use next winter when I start wearing socks again. I think I’m going to take a break from socks for a bit, mostly so I can create more worsted scraps for my worsted Northeasterly blanket.
I haven’t been knitting much lately. The only thing I have worked on this week (other than my blanket) is this pair of rainbow socks. I have the first sock done. I did a short row heel, which is not my favorite. I’m going to have to go in and tighten the stitches where the heel starts and ends because there are little holes there.
My goal is to finish these before the end of pride month. There is a lot of playground knitting to be done this month, so that should not be a problem.
I’m only a couple of inches into my second sock, but I’m already thinking about my next pair. I’m going to do a short sock pattern, probably Day Off Socks or Rose City Rollers. I’ll be using one skein of koigu yarn, which won’t be enough for both socks. I’ll be doing the heels and toes in a contrasting color.
I’m not sure which color to use, so I would love your help choosing. Please let me know in the comments if you think the heels and toes should be light or dark.
Have you made short socks? Do you have a pattern you would recommend?
