So! I finished up my Oregon Socks (they deserve a post of their own. They traveled all over Idaho and Oregon last summer).
And I promptly cast on my Olympic Pride socks. I had a couple of balls of Felici Rainbow in my old-growth stash that I dug out for the occasion.
|Please note: I cast these on last Friday|
They are practically knitting themselves, holy crap. The pattern is Traffic Island Socks (a riff off of the ubiquitous Jaywalkers), and it's pretty much perfect. I've modded them a bit to add afterthought heels, because a classic heel and gusset arrangement jacks up the stripes.
They are pleasing me greatly, and I'm hoping to have them finished before I leave for Connecticut on Sunday. I'll need something else to knit on the plane, so I guess I'd better plan to cast on another pair of socks....
