Blocking in the sun

In addition to working and playing in the garden, I’ve also been lounging around in the garden.  In newly finished wool socks!

Okay, so I couldn’t leave these socks on my feet very long in the July heat, but it felt nice while it lasted!  And aren’t the colors perfectly cheerful?  That’s probably what led me to choose this yarn back in February when I started them.  It’s always so nice to have something colorful on the needles in the dead of winter, don’t you think?

  • Pattern: Thuja, Ravelled here
  • Yarn: Reggia Design Line, Kaffe Fassett, color 04451, 2 balls with leftovers
  • Needles: US 1, 2.25mm
  • Mods: None.

It was nice having something like this as my go anywhere pattern.  As I’ve mentioned before, I tend to self-impose limits or deadlines onto my knitting; not so with this pattern.  The pattern was simple and easy to memorize, perfect for picking up and putting down.  I knit a little bit here and there as time and toddlers allowed, not worrying about when they would be finished.  So it took a few months, no big deal.  In keeping with this low-pressure knitting, I have already cast on another pair of around town socks.

What’s your low-key, take anywhere knitting?

  1. I love the wonderful colours of your yarn! I faved that pattern a while ago. May have to look at it again. By the way, socks also tend to be my go-anywhere project too (‘cuz they’re so small and easily portable).

  2. They are so wonderful and colourful, I love them! They’ll definitely bring some much needed cheer to dreary winter mornings 🙂 I think I have a few balls of yarn from that Kaffe Fassett line knocking about, you’re inspiring me to dig them out soon 🙂
