WiP Wednesday: Spirals

I’ve been knitting, but not a ton. I cast on these socks as my press box knitting for the 18 days I was on the road for the end of may and start of June.



Simple Master Coriolis. Pagewood Farms Alyeska in Crayon



They also turned into good knitting for the Stanley Cup Finals. A much smarter choice than the Postwar Mittens that I had to tink after the final minute of the Super Bowl.

Either way, that’s pretty much my only active project at the moment. If you want to see me get to the heel turn on Sock #2, come and join us at the Barnes & Noble at the Waterworks mall at 7 p.m. tonight for a little Hurricane Knitters action. It’s been six weeks since I’ve seen this group, so I’m really looking forward to it!

Oh, and since I anticipate horrific traffic on Rt. 28, I’m going to leave early and go visit The Quilt Company before knitting to avoid all the icky detours.

Happy Hump Day, everyone!

Great socks. Good yarn choice for the pattern. Sorry about the work thing. I've been terminated and it's tough on the ego.

That colorway is beautiful - as are the socks!

Sooo...looking for anything in particular at the fabric store, hmmm?

There's a new Joel Dewberry line out that I just about went nutso over. Deer Valley. It's raqua (rock-qua), which is my color obsession of the moment. I'm doing a Socialite Dress in it.....
As if the lap and king sized log cabins I have going on aren't enough...

Nice socks! I'll be front and center to see you take on the heel tonight. ;-)

I love the unspoken cold-weather thread you have here. Alyeska/Stanley Cup/Postwar (I think post-Coldwar--makes sense for mittens right?)

Very cool spiral socks.
