March Socks

Socky socks for March: I made two pairs, well, technically, a pair and half.

IMG_1778    Yukon Leaves socks - this was a product of multiple setbacks. Started with a failure, frogged and restart. Then had to retract several rows because of one stupid mistake (one stitch was purled when it should have been a knit stitch), then my needle broke. After putting it on hold for nearly a month, I finally got back to it and finished, so tada, here it is. I used my brand spanking new Addi Lace needle to finish the socks and I gotta tell you, it's fantastic! I love the flexible cable (more flexible than typical Addi Turbo) and sharp enough tips, not like life-threatening sharpness. It definitely replaced Addi Turbo for my default go-to sock needles. Love it.

The yarn was picked out for the intended recipient so I hope she likes it. If she doesn't, well... *shakes fist*

That's it for now.

Two great pairs of socks!

I've knit Yukon Leaves twice. The first time was for my Sockapalooza Pal, and I had to rip mine out cuz they were too small. I went up a needle size. I've also made a pair for myself.

I feel for you with the ripping it out! The socks I'm working on now have been frogged twice. Third time lucky, I'm hoping!
