You'd think after 2400 miles of travel, I 'd have some knitting to show for it. Well - this post is dedicated solely to knitting.
I cast on the March Kit for the Socks That Rock club Sunday, May 25 on the Glenn Highway. I cast off on Thursday, May 29th somewhere on the Canadian Highway 97 south.
Overall - a fun pattern & relatively quick knit. I learned a few new tricks such as a Left and Right Lifted Increase & Cat Bordhi's way of making a gusset by increasing stitches without having to create a heel flap & then picking up stitches along the side. It's pretty nifty & the slipped stitch heel is quite cushy & comfy.
Pattern: Leafling by JC Briar
Yarn: BMFA Socks That Rock Mediumweight, Lucky colorway
Needles: Knit Picks Size 2, Magic Loop
Size: Small!! After reading the BMFA blog, several folks stated that the size medium socks were way too big, so I opted to try the size small. They are an almost perfect fit. I wish I had knitted a few more rows before starting the toe decreases.
Well - the van is ready to roll & I need to head out. More later....
