"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.

Latest socks.

This pair of tube socks has been in the works for quite some time but were finished this morning. A little bit of ripping back when I first started them [too tight] and at the very end [reshaping the toe decreasing for a more pleasing look] but, otherwise, a pretty fast and satisfying project when I could just work on them.

April Socks - updated

These are the latest socks. They took exactly 4 weeks to knit; the second in only 10 days. I would've been faster if I'd not been reading so much. LOL
The yarn is from Mary Maxim and was a gift. These socks will be given to a friend who admires the colors. Not that I'm too butch to wear them myself.

First day of Spring

Hi, everybody. It's the first day of Spring and I hope you all have a great one. I had planned to have the latest pair of socks done yesterday but will settle for today or, at the latest, tomorrow.

Recent knitting

Well... I finished two pair of socks within the past couple of weeks - having joined a "12 Months, 12 Socks" knit along sponsored by WY Fiber Skeinks [a Ravelry group I'm in]. I hope to post photos soon.

The first was a plain knit pair in Austermann Step that I really liked knitting with. Very soft and great color gradations.

MWK and MWK/Ravelry

Just a quick thought - thanks Jesse for sparking this -
Do you belong to both Men Who Knit and Ravelry's group, MWK? If so...do you find yourself using one more than the other?

Spirit Day

Hi everyone -
Putting on my social justice hat for a moment to encourage everyone to wear purple tomorrow in support of at-risk youth, especially those who are LGBTQ, for what is now known as "Spirit Day".
I first mentioned this about 4 years ago here on MWK and decided it was time to bring it up again.

Latest completed projects

I've not done an update lately. A busy summer and first few weeks of college starting. But, hey, we set new records for the college bookstore, so that's a good thing.

So what have I been up to?

Not that much, knitting-wise. I've been working on a few projects that have stretched out for a few months. I recently saw the "Hibernation" category on Ravelry projects page and thought it appropriate.
