Project: Summer boating socks ::: Pattern: Edwardian boating socks ::: Yarn: Knit Picks Stroll Handpainted

The weekend was a little dreary (but warmish, at least), so I took the time to finish up my boating socks. They are so fun. I’m wearing them as I speak blog. They are also surprisingly soft for socks knit with ‘bargain’ sock yarn. This Stroll yarn is probably one of my favorite sock yarns that I have worked with so far.

This week…

Knitting: Some sparkly business casual socks for me and some basic toe-up cabled socks for A.

Operation Honey: I’m at 17 hexipuffs so far this month. I doubt I’ll make my original goal of 40, but I should make it to 20-25 at least.

Reading: Still working on Miserere which is turning out better than I thought. It has an interesting premise that involves religion and history in our world along with fantasy elements in a different world, so it’s keeping my attention.

Watching: I’m finishing season one of Hannibal (talk about nightmare inducing tv), so to balance that I’m also watching season one of Chuck on Netflix for some lighter viewing.

Loving: More fruit is coming into season! I can finally afford strawberries! I can feel summer coming. I can’t wait for peaches and mangos and all things sweet and lovely.

Linking up with KCCO and yarn along.

  1. They turned out beautifully, congratulations!
    I’m planning to cast-on a sock quite similar to business casual, do let me know what you think of the pattern 😀

  2. Looking forward to seeing your business casual socks, I’ve wanted to make some of them for a while. Your summer boating socks are lovely, the stitch patterns look lovely with the yarn you’ve chosen
