With Paisley’s birthday socks done, the sock needles were empty. I don’t like it when sock needles are empty.
Socks are just too perfect to pick up and take with you when you need some road knitting. So regardless of what else I have on the needles, I always want at least one pair of socks going too.
Ok… so it’s not exactly ON the the needles, but what I can I say? I was on a roll. The yarn is our Stray Cat (sport weight), so it knits up pretty quick. It’s dyed as a gradient (one of Mom’s creations). As you can see, it goes from a cream to a pretty clay colour with darker speckles all over.
These are for Dad, and I think they are the last birthday present I need to knit for the year, though I have to consult my excel sheet to be sure.
And as for those needles being empty, don’t worry – the second sock has already been started!
