The Tangy Cabletini socks didn’t take me any longer than normal, about 1 week per sock. Somehow it seemed like I was knitting them forever. I don’t know if I’m starting to get burned out on socks (with the amount of sock yarn I’ve been getting lately, I sure hope not) or what the problem was, but here they are in all of their glory.

These are made with Koigu KPPPM dye code P603. They were knit on Size 0 (2mm) 16″circular needles using Wendy’s free Cabletini pattern. One was made using 60 sts and one was 66. I can tell the difference, but I don’t think it’s noticeable. I forgot when I started these socks that I have sneakers that match this yarn perfectly. See?

Darling Husband Carl got the sneakers for me last Christmas. I think he ordered them from Anthropologie. They are from Japan where they have very narrow feet. I have medium sized American feet.

So of course I immediately cast on for my next socks. These are on 2 circular needles, but top down, not toe up. I’m using my Zen String  July Sock Club yarn. It is Harmony which is a Merino/Tencel blend and the color is Dragonfly. You probably remember it from my Ball Winding lesson the other day.

And I managed to get a better photo of the Argosy blanket.

I have to tell you, it felt really weird not posting yesterday. I didn’t really have anything to show you and I think that blog posts without photos are a little boring, so I didn’t write anything. But I think I actually missed it. 

p.s.  iBook Update:  I’m sure you probably don’t care, but I went and picked up my iBook the other night after yoga.  Is it cleaner? Yes.  Is it still buzzing and a little slow?  Yes.  The good news is that it can still do everything I need it to, maybe just not at supersonic speed anymore.  I look at this as a zen lesson in patience.  I just need to remember to breathe while it’s closing or opening a program.

In the photo with the tennis shoes on your feet, you look like you’re levitating. Maybe you are.
