Evidently, it now takes me 2 months to finish a pair of socks. I think that breaks down into roughly 1-2 weeks to knit one sock, followed by a long hiatus, then finally knitting the other sock.

The details:


Pattern: Cross Stitch Blocks from More Sensational Knitted Socks by Charlene Schurch.
Needle: Size 1.5 Crystal Palace bamboo dpns (2.5mm)
Yarn: Fleece Artist Sea Wool, color Origin

Lots of unintentional design elements in these, but I'm not going to point them out. I like the pattern a lot, enjoyed the yarn. It's relatively inelastic thanks to the silk, but very pleasant to the touch and has a pretty shine. Somewhat splitty, too. I knit these to fit closely, as I expect them to stretch out a lot. They're dense, warm socks. The color is fantastic in person, and I don't think my photos really do them justice.

They look great!! Some socks are so very slow, aren't they? I just finished one of a pair and it took me two and a bit weeks. That's very slow for me but they just weren't moving!

Hey Terby, I couldn't resist tagging you with the meme that Louiz from Random Acts of Yarn tagged me with. Cheers.
