Finished second sock
The second Guitar Man sock is complete! I finished it up last night. I can't wait to give them to my uncle. He's going to love them. Heres the details:
Pattern: Guitar Man Socks
Site: Whimsical Knitting
Size: mens 11
Yarn: Knit Picks Essential Multi
Color: Shale Multi
Needles: size 2 (pattern calls for #1 but I knit tightly)
Start date: Oct. 6
Finished: Nov. 13
I really liked this pattern but I have to say it is strange making a pair of size 12 mens socks after making only size 8 womens. They just seemed so large I thought I must be doing something wrong. Had to keep reminding myself mens calves are bigger.
Now I can start on the "We call them pirates" hat for my brother for christmas. Can't wait to start that. The yarn and needles came on Saturday but I wanted to finish the sock before I started anything new. That will be my first real fair isle project, I've done some simpler ones but this is the whole hat. Maybe I'll go start on that now....
It's time for Bella's Babies annual blanket drive. Check out the "Winter is Coming" post at our website.
