4 projects on the needles, 3 of them socks, of course.
Another pair of socks for the little guy. Same yarn as the previous post, same inability of my camera to get the red correct. It's a lovely deep red with more blue than yellow in it. You'll have to trust me. I've just finished the gusset and am zooming onto the foot and finish. Then sock #2 gets knitted.
Yet another helix sock for the little guy's big sister. At 14, she's into mismatched socks, and this is a great way to use up my leftover sock yarn. Of course it never gets used up; the balls just get smaller and smaller, but they never go away. Kind of like dust bunnies: you sweep them up, but they propagate over night. At any rate, these are mindless and fun and she loves them. Plus, if she misplaces a sock, she has a bunch more to choose from. That's the beauty of mismatched helix socks.
A pair for me in my usual basket weave pattern. No hurry on this pair since I have at least 60 pairs already. And when I'm done, I'll have a nice ball of yarn leftover to be applied to yet more helix socks. It never ends.
And now, the really neat knitting news: I'm so into yoke sweaters that I've started another one, this one with a Bohus-style design for the yoke. Bottom up with body knitted first, followed by sleeves, and then joined for the yoke. I saw an Icelandic yoke sweater with a contrasting rib and little pattern, and I liked it, so that's what's here. The body of the sweater will be that lovely heathered pale brown that you see with the off-white. KnitPicks sport Wool of the Andes, which is delightfully woolly and warm and delicious to wear.
