While it was hazy and hot today,
(don't let the 86 fool you, it felt like a sauna outside)
I did the only logical thing, I stayed inside and finished up my Maizy socks.
and they fit!
I only bought a 50gr skein of each from Wild Fibre so I cut it kind of close with the white
but I finished it with yarn to spare and that's all that matters! I now have my June socks for Sock a Month 5 and I can now focus on my bamboo socks for the Summer of Socks kal. Since I'm a slow knitter and only adult socks apply, I hope to at least finish the bamboo ones and another pair before the end of summer. I'm hoping to have some socks for ME this winter. I tend to wear the same ones over and over again.....
Stats for the Maizy socks:
Maizy by Crystal Palace Yarns (82% corn fiber, 18% elastic nylon) in colors Ivory #204 and Springtime #1008 using 2.25mm Susan Bates dpns.
Sock #1: 4/28-6/15/08
Sock #2: 6/19-28/08
9 days (a LITTLE quicker than sock #1!)
Yarn is a bit splitty to work with but you get used to it after awhile. They feel really soft when done (haven't washed them yet). I don't have any plans to buy more of the Maizy just because there are SO many other yarns I want to work with. It seems my favorite socks so far are my Lorna's Laces Motherlode in sportweight. I WILL be making another pair by LL before this winter.
