Glovelies

No, I didn't drop off of the face of the earth, but my camera did for a while. This is how my Fleece Artist socks turned out. A tad unusual as socks go, but the 2.25 circular needles gave me a denser fabric that was begging for gloves. This ensures maximum warmth if the temperatures over here ever reach something resembling winter.
I'm finally taking my new 2.25 circs on a true sock-making adventure. I've cast-on 72 stitches from Regia's new Nordic Color line. Same as I the Fleece Artist, I started knitting the diamond pattern, and then ripped them out as well. I keep thinking that diamonds are going to make me happy, but it turns out a nice woolly ribbing is more my style. So I'm twisting stitches in 2 x 2 ribbing and hope to have some progress pictures soon.

Cool colours, though. It looks kind of beachy in the winter. I keep thinking of the scenes in Montauk from The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.
p.s. Pictured Regia yarn was bought at my local supermarket, seriously!!

  3. Nice Fleece Artist socks! :-) Bet they keep your toes -- err, fingers -- nice and toasty. And I love the colours in that Regia!

  4. The socks are great, the feet would make me a bit nervous, though... ;)

    Welcome back! Are gloves hard to knit?
