I'm back from Cleveland. We spent 3 days training and stuffing ourselves silly. They fed us 4 times a day at the training center... it's quite the experience, I think I'm still coming off my sugar buzz.
The socks below are not a result of incompetence or residual over-sugaring, though. They are yet-to-be-felted Fuzzy Feet made out of some leftover Christmas yarn. Lamb's Pride in Pine and some other festive colorway. I've never felted anything in our frontloader, so I'm curious to see how it goes.
On my way to the airport, I finished my Sockadelic socks. They were so much fun to knit! An easy chevron/lace pattern that knits up quickly, and yarn that spirals and nearly glows in the dark because it's so bright... a winning combo.
I've been on a bright-as-all-getout kick lately. Must be the desire to see flowers bloom, the sun shine, and the gray weather go away. Yes, I'm goth, but my moods are very weather-dependent, and bright, sunny weather makes me happy and bouncy. Go figure. Sometimes, you just can't fight biology.
Yarn: Politically Incorrect sock yarn, got it in my shipment for the Sugarbee Studios sock club last fall.
Needles: US #0 (what else?)
Mods: None. The color is incredibly bright, and I really enjoyed knitting these socks. It's an easy lace pattern that looks awesome when you combine it with the yarn. Loved it.
In other news, I'm almost done with my Back to School U-Neck Vest from Fitted Knits. I only have one armhole to go, and it'll be done. Pictures and pattern errata coming up as soon as I'm done!
