Pattern: Persephone's Socks from Oceanwin Knits Yarn: Scout's Swag Handpainted sock yarn Color: Stocker Pond (from sock yarn club) Needles: Knitpicks Harmony DPN's in size 1 Started: July 20, 2008 Completed: August 3, 2008. Note: These were a little more intricate of a pattern than I am used to, but once I’d ripped the entire thing once (too big), knitting it up was a breeze. The only change I made was to not break my yarn at the heel to start where they wanted me to start. Hate that.
Puck is off to hockey camp this week with a couple of his buddies. The Teen completed his P/Sat prep class this week - he scored a 216 on his sample test, so he's feeling pretty full of himself (that's well within the range for the National Scholarship Registry - yay!) All of a sudden, August is full of dentist and doctor appointments, haircuts and back-to-school pictures! Yipes!
It's a very funky little sock pattern - and very pretty colors. You laugh in the face of Summer Sock-o-mania - mwoo ha ha ha
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that pattern. I've gotta get back to my sock knitting. I'm a total slacker this summer. Double GAH!
