Anthony’s New Socks
I finished some socks for Anthony. We have a great deal worked out. He gets the yarn, I knit the socks.
He picked this yarn out while we were in San Diego. I was a little worried about knitting with brown yarn. I’ve gotten so used to having interesting color changes and brown isn’t my favorite. Since the pattern was interesting and quick (Father and Son Sock in IK Fall 2006) the yarn in turn became interesting as well. I love the sweet little cable down the side, and they look great on him.
I’ve already started a new pair of socks. I dived into the Potatomus pattern and I’m using the Lisa Souza Yarn I got from Cara. It’s the skein all the way over to the right. I’m not very fond of yellow, so the yarn got thrown into the dye pot where it turned a beautiful green. This yarn is great! So squishy and fun.
As I was knitting yesterday, Kim and I started talking about chart reading. It got me curious about how you read charts. Do you look it over and put it away relying on memory, or do you check each row as you go?
