this morning. the leaves are changing and it has felt like fall for at least a week now. my new socks are perfect for the season.
whew, it has been awhile since i have completed a pair of socks! for those of you who left comments, here are the details.
pattern :: knitting pure & simple beginner's lightweight socks
needles :: knit picks size 0 on 2 circulars
these are slightly thick because i used size 0 needles. i am hoping this will make them last longer. i keep referring to these as my cannon beach socks. my goal was to have them completed by my trip there this weekend with the girls. i am so excited for a weekend away - i really need it and CB happens to be one of my favorite places. it was where our family vacationed every year when i was growing up. ellen's family had a place there too so she loves it as well. i think this is naomi's first time there so we'll see if she loves it as much as ellen and i do!
i accidently ordered some yarntini yarn recently that i already had in my stash. as i am trying to be really good about keeping it to a minimum (hah! my version of minimum anyways!)...i am offering my duplicate up for sale.
it is merino sport weight - variegated appletini - 260yds - US needles 3-5
i'm asking what i paid. send me an email to amyATgoodtobegirlDOTcom if you want it. first responder gets it, i'll paypal you an invoice.
$23 plus $4.75 shipping = $27.75
despite my blunder, i did manage to get a skein that i had been wanting for awhile. it is the colorway home and i might be bringing it to the beach with me. either that or trekking (i always seem to be knitting on trekking on my trips so it seems kind of appropriate that i continue the "tradition").
