Sunday Knitting

Here's my latest knit-on-the-bus project.

It's hard to get good pictures of socks that are such dark colors!

These are part of my ongoing effort to knit socks that are practical (i.e. not bright orange). Don't get me wrong - I love my impractical, bright socks. I just need a little balance in my foot wardrobe.

These are just plain stockinette with an Eye of Partridge heel. I used basic instructions from Sensational Knitted Socks, my go-to sock book. The yarn is Regia Design Line Random Stripe by Kaffe Fassett.

I'm feeling unreasonably proud of myself for already using 2 of the 3 skeins of sensibly hued yarn I bought in March, and I should continue on to the third, but I may wait. As usual, I want to use the summer to catch up on knitting and darning socks and though I'm closer than usual to my goal this year I want to put a little extra effort into my Les Miserables wrap. It's grown quite a bit since that photo, and I'd really like to keep the momentum going so I'm thinking of working on that during my bus commute.
