July Fibre Club Socks in progress

The last post featured the overspun skein of wool/silk blend from Sweet Georgia Yarns fibre club.  It is proving to be wonderful yarn for knitting up socks.  Here they are.  On 2.5 needles with 54 stitches.

I like the way the colour ways are doing a bit of striping and no pooling.  It's going to be a terrific pair, hope to have them done in time for FibresWest so I can show them to Felicia Lo myself.

Must stay focused and not fall victim to SSS -- second sock syndrome. 

There's a steady rain outside and since I'm averse to housework, there's nothing to do indoors 'cept knit, spin and play with fibre.  It's going to be a good weekend.

  1. Lovely looking socks. The way the colour is striping is beautiful. Can hardly wait to see the pair done so don't get caught up in SSS
