Sunday Knitting

I finished the Arrow Socks over a week ago, but the pictures from last weekend were terrible and I needed to redo them during the week. Luckily, I was home on vacation all week so I was able to take pictures during the day.

Here's one of them on.

The Arrow Socks pattern is from Sensational Knitted Socks by Charlene Schurch, and I bought the yarn in Lancaster, PA when I was there a couple of years ago. The colorway is called Buggy Top. I used size 0 needles, as I generally do. I wore these socks already and they were nice and warm and comfy and I'm pretty happy with them. I also like the way the light gray striped as I was knitting. Plus they're a sensible color so I'm likely to wear them more than I wear, say, my bright orange socks. (I usually wear them under tall boots. Nobody needs to know.)

Since I'm on vacation this week I've had time to do more knitting and you'll be thrilled to learn that I started.....another pair of gray socks. I'm sorry. It really makes for boring blog fodder. But I've also restarted my East Neuk Hoodie in a shade of mustard yellow that I really like so that's is exciting. I hope to post an update with pictures sometime soon!
