After mixing things up with some handspun projects over these last few weeks, I find myself back to all sock yarn, all the time. I guess it was just a matter of time!
The Royals socks continue to grow; I'm starting to think about where I need to place the heel, because there are a LOT of games left still. Thankfully, Tyler has big feet, and at this point, I can calculate exactly how many stripes need to be reserved for the foot, post-heel.
BFL socks have started to see some action in the form of a productive afternoon at the Revolution Tap Room last Sunday - I'm just doing a simple knit and purl arrow design for the leg, which was actually a stitch pattern from the Boson Cowl I knit not too long ago.
Brioche for Beginners, because that is exactly where I'm at - I've only knit one other project with brioche (a sweater), so I still feel pretty new to the technique. It's actually pretty easy once you get the hang of it and can adjust to all of the funky abbreviations, though. It seems like each designer uses their own version of them, too, just to add to the confusion, but luckily both patterns I've knit have had instructions that were pretty easy to pick up and memorize.
sock project FOR SCIENCE.
