Which means that it's also a nice day but extremely hot for the Odunde Festival, which is today. It's really fabulous, but between the temperature and the crowds (easily 1/2 million people in our neighborhood!), we'll be staying put, sitting in front of the fan. Of course we'll still be tempted by the smells coming through the windows of all the yummy food being grilled ...
I realized the other day that I never did an official FO post for my Mojito Socks, and we can't have that, being that you a) kept hearing about them while they were in progress, and b) I love them so much!
Project: Mojito Socks
Pattern: Classic Socks for the Family (my go-to basic sock pattern)
Yarn: West Yorkshire Spinners 4-ply, colorway Mojito (ordered from The Woolly Thistle)
Needles: Size 1 US
Modifications: I made the leg longer, because I like my socks a little higher above the ankle
Comments: How I love these socks and this yarn! I came across it shortly before we were headed to Puerto Rico in April, and knew that it had to come with us on our trip, and that it would make great socks. I enjoyed knitting the socks, because the yarn is very nice to knit with, and loved watching the stripes show up. And though I did not make any special efforts to get them to match, they actually come pretty close! I can also recommend The Woolly Thistle, both for prices and for fast shipping. Everything about this pair makes me happy, and they will always remind me of a wonderful trip as well. I cannot wait to open my Box o' Socks in 2018 and see them waiting for me!
That's it for now. I hope you have a lovely Sunday, and if you are also getting blasted by the heat, I hope you can stay cool. And of course, Happy African New Year! :-)
