mo half fo

It's Monday, and one half has been finished.

This is an ankle (ish) sock for my friend Donna, seen here reclining gracefully and enjoying the late afternoon sunshine that is so sweet today. The toe is a bit pointier than I had anticipated, even though I left twelve stitches on each needle for Kitchnering. But I spread it out on my hand and it seemed okay.

I like this yarn a lot. It's the thinnest sock yarn I've knit with yet, and I've never used size 0 (US) needles before. I'm amazed I haven't bent them into crochet hooks, they're so delicate!

I still haven't finished the Monsoon socks. I don't know why I don't like it, I just don't. I am looking forward to the new yarn that came, but not with that pattern. Plain socks make me smile, so plain they shall be.

Have a lovely week.

That is a lovely colourway. It IS like a peacock!

Hang in there with those monsoon socks... I saw someone else's finished and that winding cabled leg part is gorgeous!
