New Projects.

I have a couple of things on the go. You saw the swatches for Bea and "green" Cherry....progress to come.
I started a sock for my Dad around the time I started that Basalt Tank Disaster.

Poor dad, waiting so long for some handknit socks...mom has got so many pairs.

Well, I have been avoiding those socks...you see...his foot is a size 15. Yeah, and about 11" circumference. Those are some giant socks to make!

I got some knitpicks essential sock yarn to give it a go.
Here we are...I worked on it while we visited this weekend. A little sun, and little beach...a HUGE SOCK!


More to come...I need to get out of this heat and go swimming...the air conditioner is not working! I can't stand the smell of sweating wool!

Very nice pattern. These will probably be the best fitting socks he's ever owned. You could be starting something here.
