These were a pair that had been started probably back in the summer.
Even though I’m seriously doing Denise’s challenge to make a new pattern each month, I am going to keep a plain Jane pair of socks on the needles. These are the ones I grab when we’re making a road trip or sitting in a waiting room or anything where I can knit but don’t want to haul a pattern, a row counter and have to do serious thinking while knitting. For these orange socks, I had one sock finished before we left MO and it’s taken me forever to get the second one done. The yarn is Lorna’s Laces and that’s one of my favorite sock yarns but it seems like it takes me forever to knit a pair of socks with it.
That’s my third pair to get finished in 2012. Two pairs were just finishing the second sock and one pair was a start to finish pair. Next, I’m making a pair of socks for a very special lady and I think I know what yarn I’m using . . but I’m not sure which pattern I’m going to use. No time to waste . . I’ll get it all figured out and started tonight.
