Week End Knitting

Drat, just lost a post. I didn't save it before I previewed and when I closed the preview window that was the end of that. Live and learn.

Ok. I finished the Meillenweit socks. They are a pretty good fit, although a tad loose in the ankle.

The color is a bit washed out from the flash. They are really red, pinkish brown, and brown.

Next, I cast on for the Country Socks for the Folk Sock Knitalong. I've reached the heel flap on sock # 1. These are supposed to finished by January 31, and that shouldn't be a problem. They are interesting, but not terribly difficult. Here's a progress pic:

You can't really see the detail in the ribbing, so here is a shot of it stretched over my hand:

Hmm. I'm not sure you can see the detail well in this shot either. I did some work on Beadwork, adding about an inch to the right front. It's going back in the basket for a couple weeks, because I've been invited to a baby shower on February 4, and I need some time to knit something for that. It will probably be a hat or booties or both. Knitting a sweater would be cutting it close. I have enough stress in my life without adding to it. Well, that's it for today.

The completed pair look great! And I'm looking forward to seeing the next pair done!

Wishing I had picked the grey! Nice Job, Barbara! I also like your Meilenweit socks. Are they cotton?
