Everybody duck! July 30, 2007

Watch out for flying porcines!

Hubby saw my new socks-on-the-needles, and he likes them!  So much that he wanted them for himself.

Too bad he can’t have them.  I’ve got some other yarn stashed away that would be appropriate for him, so I guess I’ll have to work a pair of socks for him into the knitting queue.  At least his feet are only a man’s US 9.5.  It could be much worse, right?

Would you like to see the socks that changed Hubby’s mind?

Yes, that’s the 1×1 ribbed cuff of the Embossed Leaves pattern from Interweave’s Favorite Socks. 

In other news, I have to undo the bind-off for the Reid sleeve and add an inch.  I measured the sleeve with my new tape measure, and for some reason I thought the pull was included in the measurements.  Nope, it’s not.

    You already know how much I love the Embossed Leaves pattern so I’ll digress in that regard. But yay for changing minds!

    Ha HA! I KNEW it would happen eventually. He’s been sucked in! (That’s good.) And that is knitting up nicely so far. I think the color changes are subtle enough that it won’t detract from the pattern, no?
