Hi everyone! I'm in an extremely good mood as I've been a Los Angeles Kings hockey fan since 1990 and they're only 2 wins away from the Stanley Cup final and 6 wins away from winning the cup! It's a good time to be a Kings fan! Enough with that, and on to WIPW!
Today I'm sharing a new sock! Surprise surprise! I promise that I will soon be starting a shawl so you can all have a break from my sock knitting. LOL
This is the May sock for my Harry Potter knitting challenge with my hometown knitting group. The pattern is Horcrux socks.
I actually started the socks today (Tuesday) afternoon and they are flying off the needles! I can't believe how much I got done!
I'm using a US size 0 needle, which is very odd for me. I'm a tight knitter (but am getting better at loosening up) and usually have to go up a needle size or two. I started the socks on a US size 1 1/2 and the 70 sts pattern was too big. I then dropped it to the small size sock, at 6 and it was too small. 70 with size 0 seems to work, so I'm hoping the foot fits as good as the cuff and partial leg does so far.
As far as yarn, I'm using the Candy Skein sock colorway of the month (May '12) called Candy Skein 1st Birthday! The yarn is still available for purchase if you're interested here.
That's it from me today!
