Remember this sock? The one I was bored with?
Since then, I've started other socks.
The sock on the right is knit with Regia sock yarn and I really enjoy knitting with it. I have a couple of pair of socks knit out of this yarn and they still look new and have held up to wearing and washing beautifully. I've decided it is one of my favorite sock yarns. The sock on the left is knit out of Universal Yarn Bamboo Sock, which is merino wool, bamboo and nylon. I've never used this yarn before. It feels so nice and I'm enjoying knitting with this yarn as well. The fabric of this sock is very soft and relaxed. It will be interesting to see how it washes up and how well it wears.
In case you are wondering, no I didn't finish a "pair" of socks out of the Regia yarn yet. My routine is to work on three pairs of socks at a time, by knitting one sock, then moving on to another yarn, and knit one sock, etc., until I have three socks. After three socks are done, I start all over with the three different yarns, and knit one sock at a time. When I am done I have three pairs of socks. This helps a great deal with the second sock syndrome. It helps to entertain my brain while commuting to and from work.
This weekend we are heading down to Portland on the train to see Frank and John. It's been a long time since we've seen them. I'll remember to take my camera.
Well, on to socks and to pray for A.J.
