Welcome and Happy Friday!
I have a finished project to share today and guess what? It’s socks! Again.
I’m in such a rut with my knitting. Obviously I enjoy knitting socks, but not so much that almost the only thing I have to share on the blog is socks, and more socks. I’ll have to ponder a bit on how to change it up next week.
I don’t want that to take away from these lovelies . . .
Elementary Watson Socks
Yarn: Knit Picks Imagination Hand Painted – castle walls
Needle: 2.5 mm (US 1.5)
CO 3.14.12, BO 5.7.12
The designer says she was inspired by a cabled sweater worn by Dr. Watson in the BBC’s Sherlock series. I’ve never done so many cables on skinny needles, but after a while the pattern was easy to follow and memorize. The Imagination yarn is so, so soft (50% merino wool, 25% superfine alpaca, 25% nylon) and the castle walls colorway is subtle shades of gray.
This pair is for J. The man loves hand knit socks. These are pair #6 for the 12 Socks in 2012 challenge. Yea! I’m half-way to my goal, with two more socks on the needles.

Have a great weekend!
