I finished the first of the Retro Rib socks while watching the Bachelor on the dvr today. I have found with many of my socks that the feet end up being too long for my foot, so I started the toe a little earlier and it fits much better. I love this sock. I will probably cast on the second tomorrow to avoid any delay in knitting it. After that, I will cast on the second Twisted Flower sock, before starting a new pair. I'm really trying to behave here. I'm torn though for the next pattern. It will either be Pomatomus or the Embossed Leaves socks. I am probably going to use the claudia handpainted in Freesia (which I had originally tried to knit the mad color weave socks in) for Pomatomus, because the color changes make it hard to find a pattern. I'm hoping Pomatomus will be the right one. Then for the Embossed Leaves I have just a teal yarn for those. I guess I will decide depending on how I feel after I finish my Twisted Flower socks!Here is the bobbin I finished up last night. 2 ounces of the bfl all spun and waiting to be plied. I love it ever so much, and I think it will be a good sockweight for sure when I'm done. I can't wait!
I'm still working on the whitewater mitt. It will be done very soon. I could have finished it today, but I got caught up in the sock. Maybe tomorrow?
