Done and Done

Not too much to report, except that I finished Shawn's Stormy Socks last night.

Stormy Socks

Yarn: "Stormy" by Socks That Rock, light weight

Needles: US 2's, 4 dpn's

Gauge: Approximately 7 sts=1"

These socks fit a US 10 shoe size, approximately 9 3/4" foot circumference.

Pattern: Yarn Over Cables from "Sensational Knitted Socks" by Charlene Schurch

So it's over. Shawn has his socks. Finally.

Friday night I went to the LYS for a little SnB and was able to do about 30 some odd rounds on the sock. (I forgot my note book so I had to stop at row 56 because that's where I thought I ended before starting the heel. I was right.) Then yesterday morning, I was up at about 6:30 with Scout, (me no likey early mornings), and decided to work the heel. So I finished that and then did the leg last night.

Two pair of socks in a month! I'm on a roll. So much so that I had my Little Bunny Foo Foo caked and it's ready to get on the needles today. Well maybe. I'd really like to get more done on the Cabled Sweater. I'm almost finished with the back. Almost.

And Friday, when I came home I was welcomed by this box of goodness:

My SP 10 pal sent me a gift! Yay for me! It's three skeins of Artyarns Supermerino in a blue and yellow colorway and some chocolatey goodness too! She knows the way to my ♥! Thank you to my SP whoever you are!

And here's Shawn in his happy place when he put his handknit socks on:

It was a good weekend.

Another pair of fantastic socks! It is really great how they striped like that!! Early mornings can be crappy, but at least you made the best of it and got some more sock done!

Any idea what you are going to do with the artyarns yarn? It looks so tempting... I wouldn't be able to resist it... and, I think I would have eaten all of that chocolate already too! Or at least stuck it in the freezer...

Those are so fantastic! I love that both of them turned out so similar - no issues with yarn pooling strangely. Happy place indeedy!
