That's for Finally Finished Object!
The fall-colored socks are finally done. I really love the stripey goodness. This non-flash picture actually captures the colors quite well. The one sock has an orange-red band that is quite a bit brighter than the other sock. It came from the third ball, where the colors seemed brighter.
Yarn: Schoeller + Stahl Limbo in the 2539 "Hummingbird" colorway
Purchased at: Yarns Unlimited in Bloomington
Started: June 1-ish?
Finished: August 15
I used about 2-1/2 balls, and have quite a bit left over of the third ball. Maybe enough for a baby hat.
Pattern again was the "You're Putting Me On" toe-up socks with a Figure 8 cast-on and a Garter Rib leg from Sensational Knitted Socks. They're quite large, and hopefully will make a nice boot sock for the intended recipient. They are practically knee highs on me.
I am working on the second Welt Fantastic sock, which is actually my first top-down pair. I really am trying to branch out in my sock-making skills. There's the top-down Welt Fantastic and my Magic Loop Caribbean Blue two-socks-at-one-time already on the needles. I feel like I should try short row heels next.
I am drooling over Nancy Bush's Vintage Socks and Knitting On the Road, and I really want to make one of these next. I can hear the Cap'n suggesting that I finish my other UFOs first, but it can't hurt to dream, right?
