I am settling in to the school year and anticipating the approaching autumn. It is 92 degrees today and uncomfortably humid. My grass is high enough to start drawing notice, but I am just recovering from my headcold. My teenager brought the mower out as a first step toward mowing, but is now playing Xbox. Sigh.
I finished my first pair of Skew socks, my new favorite sock pattern. I am very pleased with them!
Skew Socks Knit With My Hand-Dyed Yarn
This pattern is free from Knitty.com. The designer says that although quite a bit of high school algebra and geometry went into the design, you only need to be able to count. I would add that the ability to follow directions comes in handy as well as a memory that extends the length of time it takes to complete an entire row. I have a tendency to forget what I am supposed to be doing by half way through a round.
Here's the back view:
This was yarn that I had named "Berries at Midnight"
Praise God from whom all blessings flow!!!
