*****Today by contrast is overcast and misting outside. A good day to be inside and doing some of the things I'd planned for this week. But first, it's time for me to show you the last of the Started-Before-I-Broke-My-Wrist-Projects.
Project: First Down Socks
Pattern: My own! And it worked! (And it's nothing difficult or earth-shattering, but nonetheless ...)
Yarn: lolodidit Everyday Sock, in the Fly Eagles Fly colorway
Needles: US size 1
Notes: I was perusing the lolodidit site one day after hearing the Grocery Girls talk about her yarn on their podcast, and saw this colorway and decided I MUST HAVE IT BECAUSE - EAGLES!!! I cast on these socks last fall when football season started, and then of course broke my wrist and that was that for a few months. But once I was able to knit again, they started to feel the love and I decided that I would not start any new projects until all of the BBW (Before Broken Wrist) projects had been finished.
Of course, I wanted the pattern to be something special. But I couldn't find one that I wanted to use with this yarn. So I made up my own, and am quite pleased with the result. The yarn is wonderful to knit with, and the colors are so great (though you can't really tell in my photo, sorry). I will now put these away until football season starts again this year. Hopefully both the Eagles and I will have a better season this year (though they did very well last year - me, not so much)!
So now I'm all "caught up" to myself, and can start some new projects without leaving others in limbo. I have started another pair of socks - the ones for the friend's husband getting a kidney transplant - and will be winding yarn today for this pattern.
I hope all of you have a good one today. :-)
