- I finished knitting my May Day Sock Swap socks.
I used the Red Dwarf sock pattern by Turtlegirl. The pattern was a lot of fun, especially in a dk weight yarn. It went super fast! I love that there’s room for a lot of stretch and that they should fit my pal no matter what.
The pair was knit between February and April.
Yarn: Schaefer Lola colorway unknown
Pattern:Red Dwarf socks
Mods: none that I can think of
Now that the socks are done I can think about what else to put in my package for my pal. I have to mail it out on May 1st so I still have some time to think about it! I haven’t heard anything from the person knitting me a pair so it will be a nice surprise when I get my pair of socks!
- I started another sock
Almost immediately after binding off the second sock of the above mentioned socks I cast on for the second Red Dwarf of my own pair. You would think that by now I’d know the pattern by heart but I still keep it next to me while I’m knitting… I guess I’m too lazy to make myself remember it.
I’m already halfway down the foot so I have high hopes about finishing them soon.
- I sewed another box bag.
This is version 4 of the box bag series. I think that I’ve almost got all the modifications down and I’m quite pleased with the results.
I’m hoping that I can make a couple last improvements on my next one and then have a finished product I’m entirely pleased with.
