Plus: Pictures of the finished Irving Park socks! They’re great.
Irving Park socks
Pattern: basic sock, 64 stitches on US0 (2 mm) Clover dpn
Yarn: Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock, Irving Park
Started: September 20, 2005
Finished: October 1, 2005
Plus: the v-neck of Cloud is perfect.
Plus: I cast on for two more pairs of socks, the Vera knee socks (oy…these are going to take awhile) and some Knitpicks ones for class knitting.
Minus: crappy nighttime indoor photos in this post. Sorry.
Minus: I put Cloud in the dryer for awhile, then took it out while still a bit damp and laid it flat to dry. Bad news is it’s almost 20″ across, so a 40″ chest – I was aiming for 35″, although I knew as I was knitting it that it was going to be bigger than that. I’d hoped for about 37-38″, but there you go. It’ll probably still be wearable anyway, but meh. I’m REALLY not ripping it.
Somewhere in between: I’m firmly on the beach of Sleeve Island, as I’m working the second sleeve of Simply Autumn and still the first sleeve of Katy. Where’s my cocktail?
