Gumball rally

With the Seascape socks done and dusted, I wanted to have something new on the needles. As you know, I haven’t been knitting much, and with garden season officially here, the available time has been cut even further, but I still like to have something on the go so I can just pick it up whenever the mood strikes.

And socks are the perfect thing for that.

The yarn is Knit Picks Stroll and the colourway is Gumball. I originally ordered it to make something for my neice, Rowan. But when I got it in my hands, I decided I wanted to keep it all to myself.

So these will be an pair of ankles socks just for me. The cuff is 3″ long, and knit in 2-2 rib. The foot will just be plain stockingknit.

While I am already on the gusset of these, I don’t expect them to go much further very fast. My digging adventures on the weekend were one of the biggest jobs on my list – but there’s still lots of others out there. The weekends just aren’t long enough to do it all, so that means working on my to-do list after work.

Maybe sometime in June things will slow down a little…

    That is a pretty colorway! Now I want a gumball and I haven’t had one in years. Something about those pretty things when they rolled out of the machine made them taste better than any other gum.

    Fun colors! I can see why you kept it. What pattern are you using? You are so right, there’s always some part of the garden needing attention these days.


  3. All the sock knitting is gorgeous, finished and in progress. And the fabric haul!!! So jealous. But I am still trying to reduce, so I will try to ignore the lovelies. LOL. Your gardens must be the talk of the town!!
