I'm surfacing from a busy work schedule to post some recently completed socks. Thank goodness for knitting, which keeps me feeling creative even when I'm really vegging in front of the tv. The pattern is a variation of Roza's Socks, but I substitute 3 x 3 ribbing for the pattern stitch. This sock fits perfectly every time. The yarn is Patons Kroy in Rusty Stripes. Lining up the stripes perfectly so that the socks match is a personal obsession.
I recently ran across this DIY tutorial for sock blockers. They're cut from a dollar store place mat. You can't get thriftier than that, it it does the job nicely.
I miss you guys and I hope to resume posting more regularly.
