Man Socks

Finished Will's socks! I was mightily bored of that pattern before I was done. Now I would like to branch out and try some more ambitious sock patterns, but I have these piles of self-striping/patterning Regia ... maybe I can find something that works with that. I *cough* may have obtained a copy of "Sensational Socks."

The Wallaby continues to baffle and amuse me. It turns out my 9s are too big, not too small, and yet I think the fabric is borderline too tight. And this cannot possibly be of interest to anyone but myself (if that), even my faithful sister-in-law. *sigh*

I need to figure out my traveling projects, and soon! Never mind that I have not figured out what clothes we will need. We must have priorities!

Pattern: Yankee Knitter Classic Socks
Yarn: Regia 4fadig - Jacquard Color
Needles: My grandmother's shiny blue Boye Size 2 aluminum "knitting pins"

GREAT socks!! (Nice calves too.)

Knitting projects are much more important decisions than clothes .. You will bring the Wallaby, won't you? I *am* interested in the gauge saga, just frustrated that I don't have the answer.

That said, my advice would be to get a fabric you like and err on the side of too large, since we know the recipient is growing.

OOOH, can't wait to see the recipient. (Toby is counting the days!)
