Socks and Blanket

I knitted up the second Arne and Carlos sock yarn for myself. Also knitted two pairs of socks for my sisters as birthday gifts. I used 2.25 mm needles for all three pairs. 68 stitches for my socks and 60 for those of my sisters. I had some Briggs and Little sport left over from other projects and knitted up a blanket.

July Socks are done.

They were finished Sunday afternoon - July 19, 2015 - and were begun on June 28, 2015. Three weeks from start to finish...not bad for me. [Of course the second knit up faster as all the details were figured out...about a week.]

"June" socks are finished...finally.

The June socks took almost 2 months to get off the needles. However, that still keeps me in the game - for what that's worth.

Current events

Still working on the sock yarn version of the tube sock. I'm about 4 inches into the second sock.
I'm also enroute to the 5th Rocky Mountain Men's Knitting Retreat in Allenspark, CO. It goes from 11th to the 14th of June and is my absolute "me-time" vacation.
That means I'll be out of touch for several days. Take care and keep the needles clicking.
