This is what we woke up to on Saturday morning. It was only about -1C and the snow did not stick for long. I love the snow, it is so pretty and peaceful, but I am ready for spring now.
I am not picky. I would be totally happy with 12C or 15C I am not asking for the moon here. Just a little bit of sunshine.
I got the cuff done on the lucky socks and then tried them on. I was only little bit surprised when I tried them on and they were to big. I thought about it when I read the pattern, cast on 72 st. I cast on 72 for the STR lightweight yarn for a size 10. So why on earth did I go ahead and cast on 72 for the medium weight STR? I was following the pattern. Lesson learned, again.
Next time I will listen to my brain when the pattern does not sound right to me. This is what my first sock looks like now:
Before I ripped it out I started a medium size sock (66 st) from the other end of the yarn and knit it for a while so I could try it on and make sure it was not to small. It fits perfect. Now I have a sock going from each of end of the ball.
I love the colour and the pattern seems to be pretty simple so far. The chart is well written and the instructions are clear once I got the size thing figured out.
