Socks in progress

My current project is a pair of socks for Ryan. At 8.5 stitches to the inch, it's verrrrry slow going, especially since I rarely have an extended period of knitting time. However, I'm knitting on them alot since the K3/P1 pattern is easy and quick to put down.


They worked great in the car on Saturday on our way to and from picking up our Airstream. Because they are for Ryan, I've chosen a dark color (Cascade Heritage) that makes it difficult (if not impossible) to knit in low light. So I find myself knitting next to our big front window, or with all of the lights on...


I'm hoping to get them done before the 14th? Can I do it?


Last time I found myself in Seattle Yarn working on these socks, a beautiful skein of Madelinetosh sock yarn found it's way into my purse. I swear I don't know how it got there. (Just like when Ryan says he has no idea how a case of Guinness found its way to our shopping cart...)


I think I might knit these into a pair of Leyburn socks.


Last thought: why is this colorway called "ginsing"? Whatever, because I still think it's beautiful.


  1. I keep trying to post a comment and it will not let me! Love the pic of Mr. Leon he is too cute and I love all your pics of your projects they look wonderful. Have fun making the socks! Alison

  2. Leyburn is such a good call for this yarn!
