I am working on a new pair.
It is a pattern from Mountain Colors (Hand painted Yarn) Called Diana's Trail socks. These look like my favorite pair of socks (Thorlo's) they have a little give in the toe and heel, and are tighter in the instep. They have a rolled cuff.
The color of the pic does not do the yarn justice. It is a kind of hot pink, purple, orange,red merino superwash wool. What I have finished is all but about 1/2" of the cuff. To the left is the wrong side of the outer cuff and to the right is the under cuff. I'll let you know how it turns out. I cast on 64 stitches and have decreased to 60. Just about the same as the other socks. I am hoping that the difference in the yarn will be a good thing as far as the outcome of the sock. I also hope that this folded cuff works better at keeping my socks up, than a short cuff did. From now on, I will just knit a regular long cuff and push them down.
Now for quilting stuff. Nothing to show. I re-drafted my new quilt, and I am going to have to re-make another compass. The next one will be a 64 point compass in a 12" block size. I decided to do all of my blocks at 6" so that the quilt will be a wall size. That meant having to back down the size of the center compass. Dont' worry, I'll find something to do with it.
I got my new Quilting Arts today. I guess I will go upstairs and read it. Have a great Wednesday!
