Summer of Socks Sunday

I decided to try to make Sundays my Summer of Socks update post. The KAL started on June 21 and there are quite a number of goings on during the course of the KAL, which ends on Sept 21.

So to start...I cast on yesterday for my second pair of Horcrux socks from Six Socks...this one for me in Black Bunny Fiber's Velvet Painting (who would have though since I have extolled numerous times here who much I love Black Bunny). I'm using two #0 KnitPicks circular needles. I was able to finish the heel yesterday and did the heel turn, gusset and now working down the foot on sock #1. This was the project that I brought to the new Fiber Arts yesterday afternoon, where I enjoyed the lovely knitting company of Alyson, Christine and Leslie.

I woke up today and hit my head because I've been very delinquent by not casting on for my Sockapalooza 4 sock for my pal. I had decided on Panda Wool by Crystal Palace in the Ultramarine colorway many moons ago but after getting advice yesterday I decided to knit the Brigit pattern from Socktopia. So I cast through the ribbing and a couple of rows of the cabled pattern on Addi #0 using magic loop.

Check out: The use of my new Zero Stitch Markers...these were the two extra markers that Aija included in my order. LOVE THEM!

Since we will not have Internet access when we are on vacation next Sunday I will try to update this Thursday before we leave for Georgia. Tomorrow...Hurricane Sock package arrival and another completed FO!

Brigit is a nice pattern - thanks for including the link.

I bought some zer0 stitch markers recently - love them. Those extra singles are nice for socks.

Have a lovely trip!
