WIP Wednesday: Just The Socks Ma’am

We survived the storm just fine. We didn’t lose power or suffer any damage. We were lucky, very lucky. Some around us did not do as well. There were many hours without power and lots of trees down. Liz had a fence issue.

You are here though to see what I did with my bonus knitting time. Well, you’ll see that later in the week. For now I just have a sock for you. This is the first of the Lion Brand sock-ease (color 203) socks knit in the pattern from my brain on the new Knitter’s Pride Nova needles in size 2.25mm. Since you last saw the sock I have completed the heel and am starting down the foot. I am quite pleased with the Knitter’s Pride Nova needles. They are super pointy and nice and smooth. The 2.25mm is making a nice dense fabric which is just what I like for socks.

    I’ve got a pair of socks in that same yarn and color. The yarn doesn’t shrink or pill and I think the socks will last forever! 😀

    I’m glad to hear you survived the storm as comfortably as possible! I’m sure it helped to having knitting to keep preoccupied. The sock progress is looking good. I’ll be sure to check back and see what you squeezed in during your ‘bonus’ knitting time.

  5. We both got through the storm with little trouble, and we both knit socks through it! Haha! That’s a good sock yarn, by the way. I’ve used it a couple times.
