FO Friday – Summertime Socks

Camp loopy project #1 Camp loopy
It’s Friday but it feels like a Saturday. Fourth of July in the middle of the week throws me for a loop, on top of my husband having Wednesday and today off. It was a nice day and I meant to catch up on my WIP wednesday / Yarn Along, but it just didn’t happen.  Not much knitting happened yesterday at all! I started reading “Where’d You Go Bernadette” and was able to finish it – it was an interesting and engaging story that I devoured between naptime, time outside and then a bit at night. Thanks to Jessie for the recommendation! I can’t remember the last time I was so into a book, this was a nice change of pace.  I did finish (on Sunday) my Camp Loopy Project #1 – my Summertime Socks! The yarn, Mountain Colors Crazyfoot in “Summertime“, is so much more vivid than I could capture in my photo. These will be so cheery when the grey days of winter return.  I wrote before how I tried to do these 2-at-a-time. I was able to work the cuff that way and a portion of the leg, but I could not keep the leg patterning straight (you can see that one leg has a bit of criss-cross going on instead of the sprial), so I put each on its own needle and finished them Magic Loop style. I have not given up on the 2-at-a-time idea – I have stashed some self-striping yarn that will probably work better for that. The pattern, Deux Tourbillions, is from the Indie Socks book that has been on the shelf for a while. I enjoyed knitting these and I really feel like my sock mojo was reignited, so yay! Have a great weekend!
