I have a habit of starting new projects when I stll have others on the needles. Then later (just like letting a room get messy and doing a massive cleanup) I feel the need to finish things. The first on the list was the socks I started this spring and sort of forgot about. Since I had yarn leftover from my sweater fiasco, I decided to make the toes from it. The pattern is my favorite "lazy sock" (only 44 stitches, worsted) pattern, "Thuja," though I have altered it just slightly to my own taste. I like the seed stitch ribbing so I do basically the same sock when I knit simple socks with patterned fingering weight yarn and 68 stitches per round. It makes the knitting a little more interesting too.
Then since I still had leftover yarn from the red socks, what could I do but do a gray sock and finish it with the red?
Next in line is to finish off the sock of a pair that came out a bit too short. It's my housemate's birthday tomorrow and I know they'll fit him!
