Some things I knit
Pattern: Funky Sock Monkey
Yarn: STR heavyweight in Rook-y
Earlier that day I had a fab trip to the Fremont Market with MJ and her husband - I found some awesome silver Converse sneakers. But we also saw this sign:
Those facial expressions? Imagine a whole week of that. It was awesome.
MJ even bought some of the wares - recycled yarn that she's going to use to make some hats.
And earlier in the week I even completed some socks! I know, a novel idea being at sock camp and all...
These "California" socks have been a long time coming - the yarn was a gift from Rachel and she bought it in California. I'm not sure what exactly it was - a 100% merino handdyed very thin yarn, probably between a laceweight and fingering.
They turned out amazing, and I even had quite a bit of yarn left. I should have done them toe up so I could have made the cuffs longer, but I wasn't feeling the toe-up love at that point I guess. Not that I really am now, but I hate toe-up socks a bit less.
